....Rep. Louie Gohmert of Texas suggested yesterday that Democrats may actually want another terrorist attack because rebuilding [NYC] would create jobs.
'You've got subways, tunnels, bridges all subject to terrorism. And unless they're trying to create a new jobs bill by allowing terrorism back in New York then this is insane. And even that would be insane.'
As Benen says, "the guy has 'future member of the House Republican leadership' written all over him".
