I'm sure many of you who follow "the politics" like I do heard how Tom "Crazy-Eyes" Tancredo proposed bombing the holy sites of Mecca and Medina as the best way to deter a nuclear terrorist attack on the U.S.
I figured when he was asked about it in yesterday's republican debate that he'd try to deny it or at least parse it in some way so that he didn't look like such a lunatic. No dice. He actually said something (I couldn't find the exact quote) to the effect that any serious presidential candidate should be supporting this option.
Tom, Tom, Tom. Hold up a sec. Don't you think that's, I don't know, a bit soft? I mean, where's the suffering? Just bombing them lets them off a bit easy, don'tcha think? Wouldn't a more symbolic gesture be more appropriate? How about we anally sodomize all those innocent Muslims you want to bomb with large crucifixes, then make them listen to 48 hours of old Falwell sermons, THEN bomb them. That way they'll really see the error of their ways.
See, Tom, that's the Christian thing to do. It's all about hearts and minds...
This is the intellect of a sitting congressman and presidential candidate? Fucking fuck fuck fuckity fuck. Norway, here I fucking come!
