Outrage in Washington: Part II

Link: Coble, Myrick face heat for comments.

Rep. Howard Coble (R-N.C.), during a radio interview, defended imprisoning Japanese-Americans in internment camps during World War II. He thought it was necessary because some Japanese-Americans "probably were intent on doing harm to us, just as some of these Arab-Americans are probably intent on doing harm to us."

Sure, Washington is full of idiots, but before you write this guy off, please note he is the chair of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland. (via BookBlog)
