Back To The Asylum


The other day we recognized Tom Tancredo for having the (fleeting) common sense to recognize that the term “war on terror” was foolish. Now he goes right back to proving that he is “reprehensible” and “absolutely crazy,” to quote the US State Department:

“If it is up to me, we are going to explain that an attack on this homeland of that nature would be followed by an attack on the holy sites in Mecca and Medina,” Tancredo said. “That is the only thing I can think of that might deter somebody from doing what they would otherwise do. If I am wrong, fine, tell me, and I would be happy to do something else. But you had better find a deterrent, or you will find an attack.”Tom Casey, a deputy spokesman for the State Department, told CNN’s Elise Labott that the congressman’s comments were “reprehensible” and “absolutely crazy.” Tancredo was widely criticized in 2005 for making a similar suggestion. – CNN Political Ticker
