And then we'll go after Salt Lake City

It is encouraging to know that insane people are so well represented in the U.S. Congress. The problem is that these representatives probably don’t realize just how disturbed they really are. My example is Republican U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado.

All the while that I thought Tancredo was a one-trick pony with his obsession over Mexican immigration, little did I realize that he apparently considers himself an expert in strategic military issues as well. An example is an exchange Friday with radio talk show host Pat Campbell on WFLA in Orlando, Fla. Campbell asked what the U.S. response to a nuclear attack by terrorists should be. Here is what old Tom Tancredo said:

“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.

What a brilliant man. Such an act would transform a small number of extremists into millions of extremists worldwide. What a total idiot.

Tancredo, who some say may be a presidential candidate in 2008, later released a statement that he was just throwing ideas out there. Next thing you know he’ll be favoring a pre-emptive strike on the Mormons in Salt Lake City.
