Congressman John Shadegg Suggests NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg's Daughter May Be Kidnapped By Terrorists If 9/11 Trials Happen in New York

Congressman John Shadegg's theatrics on the floor of the House of Representatives are becoming almost legendary. By legendary, we mean borderline insane.

Just over a week ago, the congressman brought a 7-month-old baby named Maddie to the floor with him to illustrate his outrage over the healthcare bill.

Using a revolting brand of baby-speak, Shadegg said: "Maddie knows that if this bill passes her mom's healthcare goes away and won't be around in five years. Maddie wants patient choice; she doesn't want her mom's premiums to go up, she doesn't want her mom's taxes to go up."

Now, it seems as though nobody is safe from Shadegg's rants -- not even New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg's daughter.

While addressing members of Congress about the Justice Department's decision to try suspected 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheik Mohammed, and his Al Qaeda cronies in New York City, Shadegg had this to say:

"I saw the mayor of New York today. He said 'we're tough; we can do it.' Well mayor, how are you going to feel when it's your daughter that's kidnapped at school by a terrorist? How are you going to feel when it's some clerk -- some innocent clerk of the court -- whose daughter or son is kidnapped? Or the jailer's little brother or little sister?"

We couldn't make this stuff up -- check out the video here.

In the words of Thelonious Monk: "Sometimes it's to your advantage for people to think you're crazy."

If that's the case, Shadegg seems to have the upper hand.
