GOP's Sessions: "I’m not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban."

Not feeling the bipartisan love from House Democrats over a stimulus compromise, Texas Republican Pete Sessions is pondering an "insurgency" -- and he's totally clear on the implications of the term:
"Insurgency, we understand perhaps a little bit more because of the Taliban," Sessions said during a meeting yesterday with Hotline editors. "And that is that they went about systematically understanding how to disrupt and change a person's entire processes. And these Taliban -- I'm not trying to say the Republican Party is the Taliban. No, that's not what we're saying. I'm saying an example of how you go about [sic] is to change a person from their messaging to their operations to their frontline message. And we need to understand that insurgency may be required when the other side, the House leadership, does not follow the same commands, which we entered the game with."
That gave AOL News Political Machine's authors a visual: [I]f they do choose to convert to fundamentalist Islam somewhere down the road, we'd certainly welcome it," write Dylan and Ethan Ris. "It would be worth every minute just to see Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN) in a burqa."

Oh, if only I was better with Photoshop.

Hahahah, if I had a fast enough PC still I'd whip that up for you in a second.

In fact, it's almost worth hunting one down just to do that.
