Bizarre Argument Of The Day

It's probably not worth spilling much ink over Duncan Hunter, but he's my former congressman, so I've got a soft spot for him. I'm still scratching my head, though, over what exactly he meant by this response to a question at the debate last night from Wendell Goler about the prisoners at Guantanamo:
They've got health care that's better than most HMOs. And they got something else that no Democrat politician in America has: They live in a place called Guantanamo, where not one person has ever been murdered. And there's not one politician, one Democrat politician in America, that can say that about one of the prisons in his home district. We've got to keep Guantanamo open.
