Tom Tancredo - In the lead for Stupidest thing said this year?

In case you didn’ hear, one of our Colorado Congressmen, Tom Tancredo (R) implied, in a “hypotetical scenario” that maybe we should have plans to bomb Mecca should a U.S. city be nuked.  No, really…

I didn’t get clued into this today until I checked Hugh Hewitt’s website and found out what Rep. Tancredo said.  Beyond dumb.  Just plain stupidly silly.  Tom, here are a few major things to consider:

1) Mecca is a holy site to Muslims in a way that no Christian city can be or should be.  The closest connection is the orthodox Jewish appoach to Jerusalem and the land of Palestine.  But that is a tiny minority within worldwide Judaism. The Haj to Mecca is one of the five pillars of Isalm to all of the world’s 1 Billion Muslims.

2) The United States military includes thousands of Muslims soldiers.  Are you seriously suggesting they should be ordered to bomb one of their two most holy sites?
