Tom Tancredo Self-Destructs on Radio
In the "you can't make this up" department, Colorado Congressman Tom Tancredo, who will try and run for President in 2008 on his illegal immigration plank, made an utter fool of himself on the radio Friday while discussing the possibility of future terror attacks. Crooks and Liars has the audio.
The Rocky Mountain News has the transcript, here's a snippet:
Campbell: Worst case scenario, if they do have these nukes inside the borders and they were to use something like that — what would our response be?
Tancredo: ....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, um, you know, you could take out their holy sites . . .
Campbell: You're talking about bombing Mecca.
Tancredo: Yeah. ..... I mean, I don't know, I'm just throwing out there some ideas because it seems to me . . . at that point in time you would be talking about taking the most draconian measures you could possibly imagine and because other than that all you could do is once again tighten up internally.
What a jerk.
