"Sick bastard" declares that he supports the terrorists

Other bloggers have written about the fetishization of the notion of bipartisanship, bemoaning the fact that people have opinions that are different from theirs. There are columnists who seem to think that anything with the adjective "bipartisan" attached to it automatically makes it wonderful, and all this messy discussion and debate... well, that's beneath civilized people.

So we come to self-described "sick bastard" Stu Bykofsky, who considers the dream of bipartisanship as worth more than human lives.
America's fabric is pulling apart like a cheap sweater.

What would sew us back together?

Another 9/11 attack.

The Golden Gate Bridge. Mount Rushmore. Chicago's Wrigley Field. The Philadelphia subway system. The U.S. is a target-rich environment for al Qaeda.

Is there any doubt they are planning to hit us again?

If it is to be, then let it be. It will take another attack on the homeland to quell the chattering of chipmunks and to restore America's righteous rage and singular purpose to prevail.

Another interesting facet of this sadistic fuck's article is that he basically admits what he means by "sew[ing] us ... together." Whereas most of the time you have to read between the lines a little, he comes right out and says it: bipartisanship, the absence of political splintering, means shutting up and doing whatever the fuck the president wants, no matter how terrible an idea it is:
Bush I did everything right, Bush II did everything wrong - but he did it with the backing of Congress.

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.

It doesn't matter that "Bush II did everything wrong" as long as there wasn't all this nasty discord, this disagreement. And hey, he's practically begging for the deaths of another 3,000 civilians, so why the hell should he care about the thousands of lives lost in Iraq because Congress rolled over and let Bush do whatever he wanted?
