Dude Makes Worst Point Ever

It seems a certain Republican needs to brush up on his debating skills. You may remember Rep. John Shadegg of Arizona. He's the guy who brought a baby onto the House floor as a prop to make his point that health care es no bueno (Babies hate health care). Well, Johnny is now stepping into the "Oh my God, we can't put terrorists on trial in New York" controversy. Apparently Mayor Bloomberg said New Yorkers aren't scared to put terrorists on trial in their city.

Shadegg, speaking on the House floor last night, via Media Matters:

"I saw the Mayor of New York said today, "We're tough. We can do it." Well, Mayor, how are you going to feel when it's your daughter that's kidnapped at school by a terrorist? How are you going to feel when it's some clerk -- some innocent clerk of the court -- whose daughter or son is kidnapped? Or the jailer's little brother or little sister? This is political correctness run amok."

Um. What? Hey, here's a tip when making an argument: Have it make sense. Relate it to the topic at hand. Also, movies are not real.

So, I guess the Republicans who said they will never back down from terrorists are now shockingly afraid of terrorists. I'm confused.
