THOSE OF US WHO DID VOTE FOR HIM BECAUSE OF OUR BELIEF IN HIS WISDOM AND SENSE OF FAIRNESS, MEANWHILE, ARE LESS THAN THRILLED WITH HOW LONG IT'S TAKING HIM TO "EVOLVE." IT TOOK TOO LONG TO GET RID OF "DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL" AND THIS IS NO DIFFERENT. LET'S GO, BARRY, TIME TO FULLY EVOLVE.THE UNDERWEAR BOMB BOMB

One phrase that your superior correspondents thought we would never encounter again is "underwear bomber." As many of you will recall, the original Underwear Bomber, Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, made his mark by flying into Detroit on a Northwest Airlines flight on Christmas Day 2009, wearing the new fashion sensation.

Umar's bomb, of course, was about as successful as Rudi Gernreich's topless bathing suit from 1964, and Umar was recently sentenced to life in prison for his fashion faux pas.

So, P&J were taken aback this week when the CIA announced that it had busted some folks from Yemen who were trying to introduce a new underwear bomb this season — allegedly designed by the Coco Chanel of explosive underthings, Ibrahim Hassan al-Asiri.

Somebody ought to get to al-Asiri and point out that the underwear bomb moment has passed.
