Rather than go on the defensive, try the offensive.

zm.gifALEXANDRIA, Virginia (Reuters) - September 11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui said on Thursday he had no regrets for those who died in the hijacked plane attacks and told jurors in his death penalty trial he wished "there would be more pain." In comments that brought at least one relative of a victim to tears, Moussaoui mocked survivors of the attacks who had told the court of their pain and said he would like to see similar attacks against Americans every day.

Alex Says:  At this point, he clearly either A) wants to die and is hoping to piss off a jury, or B) is just bat shit insane.  Either way, that's exactly why he SHOULDN'T be given the death sentence.  America's frantic desire to kill someone, anyone for 9/11 (other than half the population of Iraq) has gotten out of hand.

Plus, crazy or not, couldn't he prove useful in the future? He could ID people we've never seen, decode messages, whatever. And since he clearly seems to be off his nut, why don't we just get him some help? If we cure his craziness, he could be a priceless asset.

Or, we could kill him. Yes, clearly, that's the only sane option.

Alex Says:  I subscribe to every GOP email list I can, because I love the constant rage those messages provide.  Reminds me that I'm ALIVE.  And, of course, sane.

Ken Mehlman, demonic chairman of the Republican National CommitteeAllow me to quote from a March 23rd mass email from, attributed to Ken Mehlman:

"The Democrats' plan for 2006? Take the House and Senate, and impeach the President. With our nation at war, is this the kind of Congress you want? If your answer is a resounding NO, I need you to make an urgent contribution to help us win this fight."

My God, if only that WAS the Democrats' plan, they might actually take both houses.  Is this really a logical strategy for the Republicans to be taking when Bush's poll numbers are plummeting?  I'm told it's their attempt to look unified; I'd stick with gay-bashing, because rallying behind an extremely unpopular president is not a good plan.

And, I might add, the whole point is that Bush knowingly broke the law.  That's where the "impeachment" part comes from, 'ya see.  When ya' break the LAW, you face the consequences.  That's how it works (If he can speak like a condescending Sunday school teacher, I can too).

More from the email:

"Democrat leaders' talk of censure and Russ Feingoldimpeachment isn't about the law or the President doing anything wrong. It's about the fact that Democrat leaders don't want America to fight the War on Terror with every tool in our arsenal."

That's just so… fucking… stupid.  If that even seems like a reasonable statement to you–if you think that all Democrats, which make up roughly half the country, are demanding that we half-ass our homeland security "just to show we can"–then you are a goddamned idiot.

The email again:

"And what happens if we stand on the sidelines, and give the likes of Russ Feingold, John Kerry, and John Conyers control of Congress?"

Umm… a better… country?  Oversight?  Checks and balances?  Salvation?
