Tom Tancredo Is an Asshole.

I've known this for a while about Congressman Tancredo; His demagoguery on immigration is appalling to me. Now he shoots off his mouth about bombing Mecca and is trying to make it out that he has "started a national dialogue about what options we have to deter al Qaeda..."

Hugh Hewitt rationally takes Tancredo to task here and here.

Here's an interesting nugget from the first link:

Even with the trip's lighter moments, there's a serious matter Tancredo has to think about. He knows his flirtation with the presidential race can only go so far before "at a certain point, it gets ugly." He was alluding to some old news stories back in Colorado that could give national political writers fodder. That includes a published report that illegal immigrants were part of a contractor's crew that installed the home theater system in his Littleton home - something Tancredo said he had no way of knowing. And it includes the childhood depression treatments that led to Tancredo's mental health draft deferment during the Vietnam War.

Maybe he's been in a manic phase lately.

Hewitt is obviously rattled by the discussion. He even offers the Dan Rather defense -- it's only bloggers, pay no attention. He seems to have forgotten that the scenario under discussion is what to do AFTER a nuclear attack on the U.S. See Desperate Situations
