Debbie Schlussel, a minor-league pundit wingnut who sees Muslim terrorists around every corner and questions whether Obama should be president "when we are fighting the war of our lives against Islam," went on Fox and Friends today to talk about how it could possibly be that the former Republican Congressman she used to work for was just indicted in a terrorist fund-raising conspiracy.

Debbie Schlussel: I am so shocked and saddened by this. It's heartbreaking because when I worked for Mark Siljander he was probably the most anti-Islamist Congressman on the Hill. He was the one who most understood the Jihadist threat decades before 9-11 and before most people in America I think really understood the seriousness of it.

She just can't explain how it is that her "anti-Islamist Congressman" could have done what he's accused of except that he must have needed the money.

And John Cole noticed something funny about that old ID she posted.
