Tancredo’s craaaazy

According to CNN, Rep. Tom Tancredo, one of the Republican candidates for President in 2008, thinks that it would be a good idea to threaten to bomb Mecca and Medina as deterrent against a terrorist attack. I think it is obvious that this is a ridiculous proposal and would only validate the views of the Al Qaida in the eyes of more Muslims. It would be a signal that we are actually fighting a War on Islam, not a War on Terror.

On the other hand, Tancredo is one of the three avowed evolution denialist candidates in the Republican party, so I was unlikely to have voted for him anyway.
