Seven years of college down the drain.....
Much of Minneapolis is represented in congress by a goofball named Keith Ellison. He is many things, including an anti-semite, a racist, a supporter of terrorists and cop-killers, tax cheat, former member of the Nation of Islam, conspiracy freak...the list goes on. But, hey, he's the one those educated, sophisticated voters of Minneapolis want representing them, so they get what they voted for.
Last night, however, he stepped over the line from flake to joke when discussing Iran's nuclear program. He claims that he knows the Iranians "haven't decided" to pursue building a nuclear weapon because "we have satellites." He doesn't explain how satellites can prove what the Iranian government is or isn't thinking, but that's not the funny part.
The funny part comes when host Bill O'Reilly explains that Ellison is espousing the same sort of appeasement talk that led to war with the Nazis in World War II. By not taking early threats seriously, O'Reilly said, we enabled Nazi aggression.
"Well, they did attack Pearl Harbor," Ellison says, turning himself into a real-life John Blutarsky.
