9/11 is wingnut christmas. It was everything they ever dreamed of, and the fact that most of the victims were liberals from the east coast and New York City only makes it all the more important to them.
If you go back to 2005-2006 timeframe, and re-read the stuff they were saying, especially in the lead up to the mid-term elections in ‘06, you’ll notice an almost wistful quality to some of it, and posts, particularly at Red State and other wingnut gathering places that borders on hoping for another attack.
There is something seriously wrong with these fuckers.
Jack Stuef at Wonkette had a similar idea:
… Sadly, this has become such a commercialized holiday, and it’s important to remember the little things that make 9/11 so special. The true meaning of 9/11 is that it handed George W. Bush a second term as president, and that’s easy to forget in the hustle and bustle of the season. Tonight, when you put your children to bed and they wait in fevered anticipation for that giant fat white-haired man, Dick Cheney, to come down the chimney and give them weapons, read them this simple poem.
The Night Before 9/11
Twas the night before 9/11, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, according to public statements by P. Goss.
The Abu Ghraib hoods were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that Dick Cheney soon would be there…
I think I will try to persuade the Spousal Unit that we should ‘celebrate’ the way we urban nonbelievers celebrate that other dicey Heartland American(tm) holiday (when almost all retail establishments are closed) by going to our favorite Chinese restaurant…
