Shorter Pete Sessions: "Republicans ♥ Taliban"

My favorite Texas asshat, Pete Sessions, has reached a new height of asshattery.

Frustrated by a lack of bipartisan outreach from House Democratic leaders, Rep. Pete Sessions (R-TX), chairman of the National Republican Congressional Committee, said today that the GOP should look to the Taliban for guidance in conveying its position on the stimulus package and, more broadly, in working to make the party's views on issues known. [...]

"Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban," Sessions said during a meeting with Hotline editors. "And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes.

"And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."

Well then! He's not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. He's saying he hopes the Republican Party becomes the Taliban.

Republican leadership circa 2009 my friends! Does Sessions hope to become the American Bin Laden?
