Hoekstra: Wing Nut Malfunction!

Every once in a while a GOP idiot will do something so stupid that I get a smile for the rest of the day.  This is such a case:

Someone other than Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Pete Hoekstra appears to have purchased the URL petehoekstra.com and the results aren't exactly promising for the Michigan Republican.

Hoekstra, who stakes a large chunk of his political reputation on a hawkish and elevated understanding of foreign policy and national security matters, is pilloried at the eponymous website over his handling of these very topics. In particular, the site's authors lash out at the lawmaker for fundraising off the bungled airline bombing that took place on Christmas Day. They also take glee in reminding Hoekstra that he failed to register the website they now run.

Reflecting on Hoekstra's criticism of the president's plans to transfer Guantanamo detainees, the site's authors write: "To insinuate that Obama is releasing hard-core terrorists from Gitmo is such fear-mongering crap...but what do you expect from a guy who DIDN'T EVEN THINK TO REGISTER HIS OWN .com NAME?!"…

Damn, that's funny. Republicans are so stupid sometimes, they almost make it too easy to make fun of them!

I thought you would appreciate this one. I'm surprised Mark missed it. Hoekstra is running for governor of his state.
