Say what?

From the twisted mind of Fox news comes this mind-bending pretzel of twisted logic:

Michael Scheuer : The only chance we have as a country right now is for Osama Bin Laden to deploy and detonate a major weapon in the United States because it's going to take a grass-roots bottom-up pressure because these politicians prize their office, prize the praise of the media and the Europeans ... it's an absurd situation again: only Osama can execute an attack which will force Americans will demand that their government protect them effectively, consistently, and with as much violence as necessary.

Glen Beck: If I were him that would be the last thing I would do right now.

So let me get this straight: According to them, we're in a situation where we're safe from everyone except Osama Bin Laden, and it's in Osama's strategic interests not to attack us.

And they see this as a problem? The only chance we have is for Osama to deploy a major weapon? Which he probably won't do? And this is somehow bad? Un fleepin' believable.

The only chance we have is if the pundits like this shut their stupid mouths. I usually think freedom of speech is worth it, even when people say stupid things, but sometimes I wonder...

Despite the retarded comments they keep making, I think they have obvious incentives here. From the perspective of their political careers, as far as I can tell, the only chance Republicans have at redemption/revival involves national security. Therefore, they must work as hard as they can to move that up the priority list.

Republicans have good chance of revival based on help from Democrats. Democrats are going to spend so much, then in 2010 Republicans will take over Congress and finally we would get long awaited power gridlock.

The thing to understand here is that the "core" Republicans don't want the best outcome for Americans or America. They want the best outcome for them and their political party, and screw the rest of us.

Yes, they are really so convinced of the necessity of their principles (and only their principles) that they will invite the destruction of anything and everything else as long as they manage to "win" the argument and end up with the power.

Then they aren't Republicans; they are traitors.
