Orrin Hatch, Jihadist

Orrin Hatch, R-Utah

Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, today promised to wage “holy war” against health care reform, and urged Americans to “rebel” against the U.S. Congress if health care reform passes the Senate.

This is what pases for the mainstream Republican “alternative” to the Democratic health care legislation?

Senator Hatch should take heart, though, that if his plans for holy war and rebellion do materialize, he is likely to be tried in an American court, and won’t be subject to special rendition or indefinite detention without trial at Guantanamo.
