Baleful quote of the day

Via Orcinus

"Connecticut should have its statehood taken away from it. The foolishness of its pampered residents should be demonstrated to others by a government program to bulldoze the entire state, salt the land and construct a windfarm to supply NYC with electricity. And its residents should be relocated to Guantanamo Bay where they can take a number behind the 3 who hung themselves this weekend, since they seem so intent on suicide." - Daniel Kish, a senior adviser to Rep. Pombo, in an email

What grave sin did the people of Connecticut do to deserve such a horrendous fate? An editorial ran in a Connecticut newspaper opposing drilling in Anwr.

Sounds like he has been reading too many Ann Coulter quotes.

And what percentage of Connecticut residents support that editorial? And even if you accept the absurd notion that the penalty for such views is relocation to Guantanamo, does he also advocate the same punishment for those in Connecticut who oppose those views? Apparently not.

"Kill them all... and let God sort them out" Or something like that.

Unfortunately, Pombo is a representative of my state. He's got a decent challenger on the Democratic ticket and the idiots in the DNC haven't been helping. Figures.

Undeniable Liberal said...

Wow....that is just....words can't describe it. And we liberals are angry? One has to wonder what the ruckus would be like if Hillary was to make such a comment.
Where are the grownups? Lush "Pills" Bimbo had a Bin-Forgotten like statement recently. Read it here:
