A Gitmo NIMBY UPDATE: A Political Demolition Derby

GOP official has Guantanamo idea for S.F.

A senior House Republican has a suggestion for where to put the Guantanamo detainees - right in the middle of San Francisco Bay, and right in the heart of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's district.

"Alcatraz would be a good place to put these people," Rep. C.W. Bill Young of Florida told Congressional Quarterly.

That is a great idea. And now a NIMBY moment from Thursday.

Here is a prediction. Obama closes Gitmo and has to find a place to put the prisoners. My bet is there will be very few places that they will be able to find without a NIMBY protest.

An island perhaps off of San Fransico would be appropriate. Let that thought settle in on the liberals in San Francisco.

To the GOP; put the peddle to the metal on this and screw using political brakes.

Demolish Obama's executive order on closing Gitmo.

Update: Here is Rove's prediction on Gitmo.
