It was nice that McCain had the guts to stand up to the Islamophobic sociopaths in his own party-- and lucky for her and the country that he knows Huma Abedin, who is married to former Congressman Anthony Weiner, who is Jewish, personally. Nice to see some sanity, even if McCain has problems with reality at times.
But where's the GOP's presumptive leader on this. Have you heard a peep from Mitt Romney?
Of course not.
Mitt Romney has never bothered to take on the radical freaks like Gohmert and Bachmann and the rest. Right now they're beating him into the ground about his desire to not give Sarah Palin a prime time speaking slot at the Republican National Convention. They'll win-- just the way virulent homophobe and Christian impersonator Bryan Fischer forced Romney to fire his one gay staffer.
Romney is a classic coward-- fine to lead a bunch of teenagers terrorizing a younger student then hold him down and cut his hair, but standing up to bigger boys?
Mitt Romney? When a woman at a rally called the president a "Monster", he responded weakly "That is not a term I would use"....Way to take a stand Willy.
He's the most dangerous kind of cowardly bully we could ever dream of giving elected office.
Even John Boehner spoke up tepidly in defense of Huma, chastising Bachmann and reminding decent Americans of all stripes that Bachmann's baseless hate-fueled accusations were "pretty dangerous." . Future Speaker Nancy Pelosi, on he other hand, praised McCain for “his powerful rejection of these baseless accusations.
The 5 Congresspeople, vying for the title, "Dumbest in Congress", Trent Franks (R-AZ), Louie Gohmert (R-TX), Tom Rooney (R-FL) and Lynn Westmoreland (R-GA) and Ms. Bachmann (R-MN), are in the midst of a shared paranoid delusion that Muslim terrorists have infiltrated our government...The logical twists and turns needed to attach Huma to the Muslim Brotherhood is convoluted, and circumstantial at best.
Ms. Bachmann's attachment to terror groups is far less convoluted.
HSBC Holdings, accused in a Senate report this week of exposing the U.S. financial system to illegal funds from Saudi Arabian terrorists, Mexican drug cartels and rogue regimes in North Korea and Cuba, is a major donor of Ms. Bachmann's.
A paranoid individual might suggest that she implicated Huma and others in order to divert attention from her connections to terrorism and drug trafficking. But that would be wild speculation and merely guilt by association, and who would do that?
