Scheuer is pretty good at messaging

He COULD be better*, but I don't bash the good because I'm obsessed with the perfect. Scheuer is the kind of ally we need to make better use of!

(* OK. How could he be better, you ask? There's great persuasive power in admitting that your opponent has a point. Fleitz actually does that here, while Scheuer does not. Scheuer has the right side of the argument, and gets a B+ in how he frames it. To get an A, he needs to satisfy those who are inclined to believe a Fleitz because of fear, bigotry, etc. Doing so requires you to acknowledge the foundation of their argument, but argue that cultural/religious differences alone won't motivate someone to carry out suicide terrorism.)
