Is this Life, or Reality TV?

It was just announced that Terry Jones, the crazy Florida preacher who was going to burn the Koran, and then did not burn the Koran, will be getting a free car from a former New York Giant-turned New Jersey car salesman for not igniting the Muslim holy book, and with it potentially the nation and the world. 

Apparently Brad Benson offered everyone's favorite mustached-crazy a car if he called off the burning. Now we have to assume that a call from General David Petraus saying that he wouldl be directly responsible for deaths on the ground in Iraq and Afghanistan might have played a role in the preacher's decision. Not to mention the $200,000 bill the local government is apparently serving him for additional security regarding his church.

Regardless of why he called it off though, he is accepting the car from Benson, who after thinking if over, is going to go ahead and issue him a 2011 Hyundai Accent (I am guessing that the accent is Middle Eastern?). 

But wait, none of this is the best part. The best part is that Terry Jones (our preacher) promises that he is going to donate the car to an organization that helps battered Muslim women. 

Could he not have just held a fundraiser to buy a car for the battered Muslim women in the first place, you know, as a way to commemorate 9/11 in his own unique way. Maybe cupcakes and sparklers. America loves individuality, as long as fire and holy kindling are not involved, you know?
