He sounds like a real whack job. Why do you think Republicans would bail him out?

I have no idea what Republicans have to do with anything, but this guy sounds seriously disturbed.

Sad that the guy had snapped. He'll get a thorough mental health workup, some Prozac, and be sent on his way.

This is from the end of that article you cited:

<<<<

Warning that he had Army experience with explosive devices, Conaway threatened to kill himself and blow up the neighborhood, along with the agents negotiating with him, Box wrote. The neighborhood was evacuated.

The man's wife and son stayed with Conaway, who was not armed with guns, during the confrontation but apparently were not held against their will, FBI Special Agent Stu McArthur later told reporters. Authorities who arrested Conaway shortly after he released the two honored their pledge to take him to a mental hospital rather than jail, Box wrote.

When questioned later, according to Box, Conaway admitted calling the mosque and "making a number of statements" alleged by the call's recipient, though he denied threatening Obama. Box said Conaway confessed to wanting to burn the Quran "in order to incite conflict with Muslims" and "threatened to kill the cops today because he didn't care if he would die."

Conaway explained he carried out the bomb ploy because he is "anti-government" and, just hours before he called the mosque, was barred by a judge from having contact with his grandchildren, Box wrote.

Conaway is an Army veteran, though other details about his military background were not immediately accessible Wednesday, according to Ray Gall, a spokesman for the Army Human Resources Command.>>>>>

The guy needs to spend some time in a rubber room (under surveillance). He sounds self-destructive and in deep distress. I guess there will also be criminal charges, but it sure looks like a case of a guy who cracked, and his crazy political views are just a small part of his problems.

"He may have a position in the next Congress if the Republicans bail him out."

I don't know an even marginally nice way of putting this...but this is not funny...

Hmmm... Anti-Government - sounds vaguely familiar.

Yes, he's anti-government, anti-Islam, etc. More important, he's clearly not mentally stable. It appears that his extreme political views are magnified by his emotional problems. Remember that guy who flew his airplane into that IRS building last year? He was despondent over taxes. He burned down his house and decided to fly that plane into the IRS building because he was clearly both mentally unstable and held extreme views about taxes (he'd rather kill himself and others than to pay those taxes). I don't know for sure where people get the political viewpoints that they have, but sometimes they get too wrapped up in them. I sure hope that they're not being over-stimulated or agitated by our media.
