A Colorado congressman told a radio show host that the U.S. could "take out" Islamic holy sites if Muslim fundamentalist terrorists attacked the country with nuclear weapons.
Rep. Tom Tancredo made his remarks Friday on WFLA-AM in Orlando, Fla. His spokesman stressed he was only speaking hypothetically.
Talk show host Pat Campbell asked the Littleton Republican how the country should respond if terrorists struck several U.S. cities with nuclear weapons.
"Well, what if you said something like if this happens in the United States, and we determine that it is the result of extremist, fundamentalist Muslims, you know, you could take out their holy sites," Tancredo answered.
"You're talking about bombing Mecca," Campbell said.
"Yeah," Tancredo responded.
Thanks, dickhead. You've just written the slogan for Al Qaeda's recruiting poster.
I've ceased to be amazed at the ridiculous quantites of horseshit that politicans vomit forth every day. The brain-asshole filter doesn't work too well, apparently, when your head is shoved completely up into your ass.
Rep. Tancredo, I give you credit: you've exceeded the fault tolerances for asshats AND asshelmets and moved into the next generation of idiocy: ass-turtlenecks. You dumbass.
Young liberals this week flocked to the nation's capital to hear, among other things, liberal television pundit and Democrat political strategist Paul Begala accuse Republicans of wanting to kill him and his children to preserve tax cuts for the rich.
Damn straight. How else am I going to be able to afford a bigger yacht?

What drew the concentrated ire of the Bay State's congressional delegation was Santorum's decision this week to repeat his three-year-old comment that liberalism was at the root of the scandal over child sex abuse in the church.
"Priests, like all of us, are affected by culture," Santorum wrote in a July 12, 2002 article for the Web site Catholic Online. "When the culture is sick, every element in it becomes infected. While it is no excuse for this scandal, it is no surprise that Boston, a seat of academic, political and cultural liberalism in America, lies at the center of the storm."
Moron. Now I find myself agreeing with a crapweasel such as Ted Kennedy. Ugh. Well, blind squirrel, nut, etc..
Update: Captain Ed is of the same opinion:
As a Catholic and a conservative, nothing would please me more than if we could blame the sexual-abuse scandals of the Church on a permissive society. Unfortunately, it simply isn't true. Pedophilia has nothing to do with liberal sexual mores. The sexual abuse of children involves illnesses without cures, and the scandals have to do with a church hierarchy that refused to recognize that and keep sick priests away from vulnerable boys and girls.
Normally I would rather eat raw squid with mushrooms and beets than agree with Ted Kennedy and John Kerry. Neither of these men conducted themselves with much honor during their political careers. Both owe so many apologies to so many people that hearing them call for someone else to apologize almost makes me spit out my beverage over my laptop screen.
In this case, however, they're right.
Update: Michelle Malkin agrees that Ted Kennedy is right which, by my reckoning, means that the seas should be turning to blood any second, or maybe it'll rain frogs. Then again, cats and dogs have been known to live together on occassion, so maybe I'm jumping to an unwarranted conclusion. We should know soon enough.
Five of the top 20 have to do with Social Security politics. Only two items in the top 30 have anything directly to do with educating children. As Michelle Malkin points out, however, they made room during their efforts to demand a withdrawal from Iraq (number 61), oppose CAFTA, (number 63), and support the boycott of Gallo Wines (number 47).
If I wanted to parody the NEA, I couldn't draft a better list than this. Anyone arguing that this special-interest group has the welfare of children as its first priority should read this list carefully and often.
So terrorist Abdurahman Khadr's story is being made into a movie. Holy crap! And I thought that having Oliver Stone make a 9/11 movie was a bad idea. I can already see the MSM fawning over this picture. And it's already begun. Excerpt:
Vincent Newman, president of Vincent Newman Entertainment, who bought the rights, is quoted hailing Khadrs a classic black sheep storya story about the rebel of the family. Khadr meanwhile has reserved the rights to develop the screenplay. Variety notes that it appears it will follow the storyline that makes him look best....
I guess getting his tongue pierced was too last century for Khadr. Maybe the movie will tell of his new career selling T-shirts with eye-catching slogans:
1) "Mom and dad blew up a busload of tourists and all I got was this loust T-shirt"
2) "My other car is an exploding suicide Deathmobile"
3) "Infidels? I LOVE the infidels. PULL!!"

Frankly, I sometimes think the New York cocktail crowd thinks Dr. Strangelove was a documentary.

Man, I just dont get it. There are lots of other American groups who are joining us against Bushs crusade, like David Duke and Fred Phelps and Stormfront. But who do I get automatically lumped in with? East Village Rage Against My Allowance fuckwits in Fred Perry tracksuits who cant figure out the controls on an iPod, let alone an international revolution.
I love the smell of lunacy in the morning. But not hippies. I mean really. Ugh.
An article on Title IX in the Wall Street Journal today includes a brief discussion of how Billie Jean Kings defeat of Bobby Riggs in a September 1973 tennis match was a milestone in womens sports. Maybe so, but it is less and less noted that, just a few months before, the 55-year-old Riggs had defeated in straight sets the then number-one ranked womens player, Margaret Court. (And of course there is the school of thought that Riggs, a notorious hustler, threw the match to King, either because he had bet against himself, or because he wanted to be able to hype a rematch. Riggs denied this.) Just trying to keep this out of the memory hole.

I am a veteran and my son is now serving. By your lights these amounts to a double credit for me to speak about the war. Also by your lights, you yourserf suffer from a double deficit, since you have never served and have no immediate family member serving. Therefore, your logic would inexorably find that my opinion is of magnitudes greater value than yours.
Do you agree? If not, why not?
I support a vigorous prosecution of the war in Iraq and have written several times (i.e., here) that it is the actual focal point of the war against Islamist terrorism.
Do you now, therefore, consider yourself well instructed and will you, therefore, bow to my experience and insights (which by your own standards are far superior to yours) and now fully support prosecuting the Iraq war until victory is achieved? If not, why not?
Finally, on what basis can you persuade me that you, personally, are not simply a coward of the most craven kind who hides behind anti-war cliches merely to keep intact your own precious skin?
