Real patriots root for death

Glen Beck finds a guest that is even crazier than he is, former CIA official Michael Scheuer who, obviously pining for the good old days when no amount of violence was ever enough, openly wishes for bin Laden to kill a bunch more innocent Americans with another wildly successful terrorist attack -- you know -- just to reawaken the fear of the great terrorist threat that kept the neocons in power for so long.

Adam Serwer puts it in context.
But understand, this is not unpatriotic. You can wish all manner of horrors on this country, but as long as these horrors might serve a specific political agenda, you're not being unpatriotic. Unpatriotic is a public health care plan. Unpatriotic is a judge modifying subprime mortgage loans to keep a roof over someone's head. Unpatriotic is phosphate free detergent. Patriotic is wishing for a terrorist attack on the United States.
Meanwhile, Tom Tomorrow was way ahead of the curve. Apologies for trashing his cartoon are being accepted at 555-STFU.

Good point on the whole "un-American" thing. I just read an interesting article and posted on it. Its about how both sides tend to use the same "un-american" rhetoric to push their agendas through. Hope ya check it out :)

Good post James. It's true that both sides play the same tricks to score points. Of course, the truth is climate change IS a bigger threat than terrorists but the way they "make sausage" inside the Beltway isn't solving anything.

It makes a good case for throwing all the incumbents out and starting with fresh faces that might listen to the people more.
