The best strategy would look something like taking a band-aid off quickly. Get the pain over fast. And if an attack happens quickly enough into the new administration, they can blame Bush.So the Obama administration is working hard to release all the memos on interrogations, change all the policies Bush implemented, and clear out the old as fast as possible. Never mind that if it were done slowly over time, our terrorist enemies might not be so incited to attack.If your working premise is that they are going to attack anyway, get them incited quickly, get it over with, and blame Bush.There is no other justification for so quickly making us less safe.~ Erick Erickson, Leading Conservative Voice on the Wingnut-O-Sphere

Over at the Red State Blog, home of un-closeted Sarah Palin defenders, today we hear that, get this, The Obama Administration is trying to trigger a Terrorist Attack:
Let's assume that Erickson is actually a real person, as opposed to Robert Stacy McCain who is surely a fictional character meant as a Spoof. There is no indication that he is joking. And even if this was an ill attempt at humor, it is in extremely poor taste.
But here is the thing, as the GOP shrinks, Erickson's views get closer to the center of the Party. And in the process, this will cause many Vichy Republicans to look elsewhere because Erickson appears to be certifiably batshit crazy.
The Rooting for Failure Option pimped by El Dimbo appears to be their only hope, because it looks like they fallen past the point of no return.
