Rohrabacher's ugly roar

ON SUCH A NICE, SUNNY DAY - finally -  sit seems brutish to  describe the threat by a California Republican congressman against those who might disagree with him on how to fight terrorism.   But it leaves me little wiggle-room  in offering Dana Rohrabacher, a raw-meat right-winger, the Grumpy Abe Lingistic Lunacy (GALL) Award for his over-the-top comments during a hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee in responding to three members of the European Parliament.  He said, in a burst of anger:
"Well, I hope it's your families, I hope it's your families that suffer the consequences (of a terrorist attack.)"  
And remember, this guy's a congressman!  Over the years he's said a lot of loony things. This one ranks with sky-diving without a parachute.   So maybe I should have addressed the award to the loonies who elect him every two years.  You wouldn't get me anywhere their neighborhood at night.

Sounds like Rohrabacher was auditioning for a slot on Faux News.
