Wingnut of the Week™: August 5-11

This week there is no competition. It has to be Philadelphia Daily News columnist Stu Bykofsky, who wrote the column To save America, we need another 9/11.
ONE MONTH from The Anniversary, I'm thinking another 9/11 would help America.
(I think perhaps a double-dose of Thorazine would help Mr. Bykofsky.)

Because the war has been a botch so far, Democrats and Republicans are attacking one another, when they aren't attacking themselves. The dialog of discord echoes across America.

Turn back to 9/11.

Remember the community of outrage and national resolve? America had not been so united since the first Day of Infamy - 12/7/41.

We knew who the enemy was then.

We knew who the enemy was shortly after 9/11.

Because we have mislaid 9/11, we have endless sideshow squabbles about whether the surge is working, if we are "safer" now, whether the FBI should listen in on foreign phone calls, whether cops should detain odd-acting "flying imams," whether those plotting alleged attacks on Fort Dix or Kennedy airport are serious threats or amateur bumblers. We bicker over the trees while the forest is ablaze.

According to this pathetic, desperate foam-flecked wingnut loser, we have turned our back on Iraq because we have forgotten September 11. (I know. He isn't just a wingnut loser, he's a delusional fuckwit. What a twofer!)

Apparently, according to this moron, another heinous attack by Saudis on American shores (he even provides a list of targets for terrorists to consider) would make us forget that Iraq wasn't involved the first time, didn't have WMD's, posed no threat to the United States and has been a fucked-up boondoggle from day one.

So for being exceedingly craven, infinitely petty, and for being willing to sacrifice three thousand of his fellow citizens so the foam-flecked loons who have been wrong about everything so far can feel better about themselves and the destruction they have wrought our country and our Constitution, Stu Bykofsky is my very first (genuine MOPAR) Wingnut of the Week™.
