We just need another attack!

The new GOP chief in Arkansas, Dennis Milligan, is settling in to a state where Republicans were soundly beaten in the last election. He was elected as the new chair of the Arkansas Republican Party just two weeks ago, and predicts many changes for the GOP in his home state. I can't imagine that a statement like this one is going to help:

He said he’s “150 percent” behind Bush on the war in Iraq.

“At the end of the day, I believe fully the president is doing the right thing, and I think all we need is some attacks on American soil like we had on [Sept. 11, 2001 ], and the naysayers will come around very quickly to appreciate not only the commitment for President Bush, but the sacrifice that has been made by men and women to protect this country,” Milligan said.

I'm having a hard time believing that he actually wants another attack on the US, but his blithe assurance that it would get people to support the president is pretty off the wall. I know a few poeple who believe this sort of thing.
All we "nay-sayers" need is to have more people killed and we'll just realize how Fabulous and Special the boy king is? That we don't already understand the sacrifice of every man and woman who has died in this fiasco? Really? Is that a size twelve shoe you have in your mouth, there, Mr. Milligan? Or do you stand by this one?

Seriously, I have to imagine he's kicking himself for phrasing it that way. I sincerely hope he is.
