“I’m fixing a hole where the rain and a million people get in”-Paul McCartney, assistant librarian, Liverpool, Arizona
Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West, on boycotting Arizona:
“If this [Arizona] was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border.”
She’s twice-confused in her geography; she thinks Arizona is over by Kansas and that Milwaukee County extends to Tuscon. That’s why she’s writing laws for Arizona, you see.
But we shouldn’t be too hard on her. The President doesn’t know where the border is either.
The Disclaimer-in-Chief has put up warning signs on federal lands 80 miles from the border and 30 miles outside of Phoenix, warning Americans that they are entering the sovereign territory of smugglers and drug gangs. Gov. Brewer wants him to do his job instead. Imagine.
Shouldn’t the warning signs be aimed at foreign criminals, not law-abiding citizens? If BP was recklessly using these public lands without permission, the feds would put a stop to it at once!
Or maybe not.
When Arizona’s law passed, Mexico issued travel warnings to its citizens (say–isn’t that the problem to begin with?)…and now Obama has issued travel warnings for Americans in America, too! It makes sense: to Obama, Arizona is a foreign country.
He won’t plug the hole in the ocean.
He won’t plug the hole in the budget.
He won’t plug the hole in the border.
And he can’t seem to plug his piehole.
But there is one hole he’s relentlessly working on plugging, night and day…his hole-in-one.
If she really wants his full attention, she should declare the desert a sand trap.
