Voyeurism Across the Political Divide

While researching Blackwater USA (still working on it) I detoured to the meaningless story that the president of Iran, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has asked permission to lay a wreath at the site of the Twin Towers while in New York for his speech to the United Nations. This is an event I care about not one whit, one way or the other. However, the rightwing wackos are going way past ballistic over the very idea. I am having a hoot reading their hysterics.

According to the wingers:
  • Ahmadinejad personally ordered the 9/11 attacks. First Bin Laden, then Saddam, now Mahmoud. It seems 9/11 had a thousand fathers.
  • He should be expelled, arrested, tortured, shipped to Gitmo, assassinated, or buried alive on the site.
  • Bush is a wuss for not ordering all of this done and they will never again vote for another Republican.
  • Hillary Clinton is a traitor for not ordering Bush to do all of the above.
  • Rudy Guiliani (or Fred Thompson, depending on the level of brain damage) wouldn't just do all that to Mahmoud, he would expel, arrest, torture, and assassinate Hillary, too.
  • Iran should be nuked while he is in New York.
Okay, that last one is not fair. These are people who believe a butterfly flitting past their window is justification for nuking Iran. They are impotent buffoons and I do so love laughing at them.

I have been meaning to do a post on how the wingnuts are now trying to tie Ahmadinejad to 9/11.

Well, it worked the first time tying Saddam to 9/11 to gain enough public support to bomb Iraq.

Maybe they think it will work again to get enough public support to bomb Iran.

I still think the rightwing shot their wad way too early on this.

If they had a brain, they would have remained quiet while Ahmadinejad visited ground zero.

Ahmadinejad is a bit of a loose cannon. Surely he would have said something offensive or radical. Then the rightwing could have jumped all over him and probably gotten more support for military action against Iran, which let's face it, is their primary goal to begin with.
