So, I’ve been in such a state of disbelief and shock from this that I haven’t been able to blog. (okay, that and a tequila binge) Believe me, I KNOW stupid. It's my job. And I recognize that the purveyors of such cut a wide swath across the populace. But sometimes, I just want to say, “Come ON! There’s no way you don’t know better than to say that!!”
You see, last week, Colorado Republican (and they're the worst kind, really) Tom Tancredo, a Congressman with a White House sparkle in his eyes, said that the best way to “deter any kind of aggression” from terrorists would be to bomb Mecca. And he said that anyone who didn’t agree with him “isn’t fit to be President.” WHA?!
I’m sorry, but given Tommy T’s rabid right-wingnut-ness, I’d think he’d be a little more hip to the ways of extremism. But I still have to say, YOU STUPID MOTHERFUCKER!!!! Total wack job.
But what really scares me is that there was APPLAUSE at the campaign stop. [shudder]
The State Department was unusually direct in their response, calling Tancredo’s comments “reprehensible” and “absolutely crazy.” Obviously, there are still some State Department employees leftover from the Clinton administration.
Now, the good news is, Tommy’s chances of even winning ONE state are roughly 30% less than than the chance of one of his supporters having a full set of teeth.
And if you, like me, have wondered why so many Republican dipshits have jumped into the race, think of this: They look at GW and think, “Hell, if America will elect that dumbass, I actually have a chance.”
And you can’t really fault that logic, America. Let’s hope we don’t make the same mistake next year.
