Tancredo awarded the GOP Hypocrite of the Week

Tom Tancredo

Welcome back to the BuzzFlash GOP Hypocrite of the Week.

Recently BuzzFlash wrote on how pro-war zealot Congressman Tom Tancredo was a rabid supporter of the Vietnam War during college, but then claimed that he had a mental illness to avoid being drafted. Cowardice in regards to combat appears to be a common strain among Republicans elected to high office. In fact -- with the exception of John McCain -- GOP Busheviks tend to be macho in support of wars in direct proportion to their fear of fighting in them.

In fact, the yellow-belly Tancredo is such a hypocrite that he reportedly regularly invites kindred phony war hawks over to his Colorado mansion to watch John Wayne war movies.

But we also wanted to note that, as journalist Max Blumenthal recently pointed out, Tancredo is also a mega-hypocite (in a Mitt Romney sort of way) for employing illegal immigrants to build his mansion's war-film screening room. Since Tancredo is pretty much a one issue guy -- virulently anti-Mexican workers (as in coded racism) -- that is some hypocrisy to have illegal workers renovating your house so you can save a few bucks.

The Rest

1. Send Tancredo to Iraq.
Time for him to serve his country.

No excuses.

I'm confused.

3. I don't think it is far-fetched to believe
that he is mentally ill.
