A few weeks ago, Michele Bachmann (R MN 6th) appeared on KSTP’s Sunday morning political gab-fest with Tom Hauser. Arizona it seems, is on the fast-track to being the “Alabama of 1963” with their new found racist laws against illegal immigrants coming in from Mexico. (Apparently, illegal immigration from Canadians are still allowed. Or perhaps, so not as those Canadians aren’t as “browned-skinned” as Mexican people are.) During that interview, Hauser asked Congresswoman Bachmann on her views about the new Arizona laws. And it was her reply that surprised me.
Lest I paraphrase, because I can’t find ANY video or transcript out there that recorded the piece:
“You know Tom, for about a million dollars per mile, we could build a fence and stop all of this illegal immigration going on down there.”
Now I have to tell you; I was stunned by that. I thought; “What is she talking about?! A million dollars per mile spent on a fence between the United States and Mexico?!”
But this isn’t something unique to “Crazyville” known as Congresswoman Bachmann! US Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has gone full-bore with the idea in a campaign ad that talks about “Building the Danged Fence”. Although, I don’t think Senator McCain believes that his “Danged Fence” will cost a mere one million dollars per mile. The Congresswoman’s budgeting fantasies we can chalk up along with her belief that the Pope is the Anti-Christ. The Congresswoman clearly suffers from self-esteem issues and an over-indulgence of cheap wine and abusing her dog’s pain killer medicine with some of stuff she comes up with these days.
I just gotta ask; “What kind of fence are these Republicans talking about?! A barbed wire fence? Chain link perhaps? A pretty white picket fence?” My
husband partner bought “liquid fence” to keep out the bunny rabbits and the tree rats out of his tulip beds in the back yard. Do you think Congresswoman Bachmann and the Republican party believes the American tax-payers should buy gallons of fox urine for a liquid fence along that border?
…Those Mexicans; Stealthily sneaking along the cover of night, ponchos pulled over their heads, until they finally arrive at the Arizona border and…
Peee-yewwww!! This country stinks! It smells like fox pee! Let’s head on back to Guadalajara for a Piña colada and cervesa. At least we don’t have to hang out here where it stinks like pee!
For a million dollars per mile, that’s an awful lot of very relieved foxes!
Now see, it’s that fence that has me puzzled as well. I mean: When you consider the fact that those Russians and those Germans built a freaking Iron Curtain to keep “Western Germans from sneaking in and enjoying the good life of Communism is East Germany”.
We’re talking the Germans, Baby. Those Krauts build everything better than anybody else does. Have you ever owned a VW Bug? People who’ve owned a VW Bug will tell you… “Germans know how to build good stuff!
…And it was those same Germans who built
A Freaking Iron Curtain!
And yet, to this day, there are plenty of museums in Germany, London and the United States displaying the most amazing and creative ways Easter Germans were smuggling OUT of their country and into West Germany.
They didn’t waste their time with Western Civilization “trying to break in” with a white picket fence or with fox urine. They built
A Freaking Iron Curtain!!
Michele Bachmann, as a stellar trophy for the crazy Tea Party movement who are screaming for accountability in federal government spending, should be front and center on stopping the idea of spending tax payer monies on urine – and more time on anything that might benefit the good people of the 6th Dist of Minnesota.
Perhaps the real problem with the Republican Party isn’t nearly as complex as we tend to think it is: Republicans need to simply stop electing people who are dumber than me.
