[efoods]Rep. John Shadegg isn’t winning many friends in New York after suggesting Mayor Bloomberg’s daughters could be “kidnapped at school by a terrorist” because Bloomberg wants the 9/11 culprits tried at the scene of the crime.
Shadegg, of Arizona, won minor fame by wielding a baby in the House health care debate like a puppet. He took it up a notch late last night casting aspersions on New York’s toughness for being willing to put Khalid Sheikh Mohammed on trial and suggested terrorists would come after people’s children, including hizzoner’s

(Via Thrush) “Well Mayor, how are you gonna feel when it’s your daughter that’s kidnapped at school by a terrorist?.How are you gonna feel when it’s some clerk, some innocent clerk of the court, whose daughter or son is kidnapped?”
“This is political correctness run amok,” he declared.
