The State of Texas doth produce some wackos. One such wacko, Pete Sessions, a Repugnican, of course, and the chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, has a great suggestion for Repugnicans in Congress and everywhere.
Be more like the Taliban!
Yup! You betcha! We Repugnicans can learn some things from the Taliban. We can learn how to obstruct, defeat, terrorize, and totally destroy our opposition - the Democrats.
Well, he didn't use those exact words, but almost. When he was asked to discuss the GOP's opposition to the stimulus bill, he pontificated thusly:
The GOP should "...pitch a 'positive, loyal opposition' to the proposal. The group, he added, should also 'understand insurgency' in implementing efforts to offer alternatives.
"'Insurgency,' said Sessions, 'we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban.'... 'And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."
One wonders why so many Repugnicans are unable to speak in plain English. Perhaps they are afraid people will understand them and expose their nefarious ways?
