(UPDATE, MONDAY MORNING: See below -- I told you it would be Perry.)

Perhaps you've seen this story:

CNN political analyst Dana Loesch celebrated the U.S. Marines who appear to have urinated on the bodies of dead Taliban members during her radio show on Thursday.

"Now we have a bunch of progressives that are talking smack about our military because there were marines caught urinating on corpses, Taliban corpses," Loesch said during her radio program on FM News Talk 97.1. "Can someone explain to me if there's supposed to be a scandal that someone pees on the corpse of a Taliban fighter? Someone who, as part of an organization, murdered over 3,000 Americans? I'd drop trou and do it too. That's me though. I want a million cool points for these guys. Is that harsh to say? Come on people, this is a war. What do people think this is?"

Since we're talking about an act of desecration in so flippant a fashion, I'll be flippant, too, and ask: Who do you think will be the first Republican candidate for president to embrace this viewpoint? No, not Donald Trump -- he's not a Republican candidate anymore, though he is 100% in agreement with Loesch.

(Love that "Semper Fi!" Trump clearly hopes his fans will overlook the fact that he's a Vietnam-era chickenhawk.)

No, my vote is for Rick Perry. He's always had a what-the-hell attitude when it comes to signing on to extremist positions, and, really, what has he got to lose?


Meanwhile, Loesch herself attempts a defense over at Breitbart's Big Government with a bit of I'm rubber, you're glue:

If "desecration" is a concern for progressives, where was their outrage when the remains of over 200 Air Force members were dumped in a landfill?

Where was it, Dana? Here. And here. And here. And here. And here. And here. Want me to find you some more, Dana?

What the Trumps and Loesches of the world always ignore in cases like this are the very real and practical concerns of the command personnel involved. Acts like these, particularly when self-video'd and passed around such that anyone can get them and distribute them worldwide, make the military's overall job harder, both at grunt level and command level. That's why there are rules against it, and that's why the military folks look quite serious when they condemn it. It's not a matter of soft-heartedness, but rather hardheaded self-interest. But, since neither Trump nor Loesch knows or cares an iota about such considerations, they demagogue the issue. As will Perry, if one of his remaining wizards tells him to do so, and if not him, one or another of the non-combat-hardened GOPers will.

I have to add, Ms. Loesch may have set a new bar for asininity in saying she'd "drop trou". Watching too much Chris Christie or what, Dana?

I'd piss on her, but she'd probably enjoy it.

I love it when wingnuts try to accuse liberals of hypocrisy without spending the 30 seconds of Googling it would take to knock the whole idea down.

Ah, CNN must be so proud of having Dana Douche as a contributor.

And Ten Bears, I wouldn't piss on her with your dick! :-)

Besides, she's a waste of perfectly good urine.

Your move, CNN.
But I don't expect anything. After all, they hired 'The Son of Erick' AFTER he called a SC Justice a child-molesting goatfucker.

But, unlike Loesch, who writes about war and who's never been in combat, I suspect Erickson knows a thing or two about child molesting and the fucking of barnyard animals, as that would probably encompass the entire realm of his sexual experience.
