Hard to say which is more distasteful: Mexico’s President Calderon berateing America, or the United States Congress giving him a standing ovation for it.
If this was Sr. Calderon’s “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” moment, we are so screwed.
- Jeebus freaking Cripes, won’t anyone read the damned bill before scolding us about it?
- What does it say about our Congress that its members will not just clap but jump up and give a thunderous ovation to someone who actively encourages his own people to cross our southern border illegally?
UPDATE: At least Sen. Hatch had the (in honor of Pres. Calderon’s visit) cojones to call foul:
“It’s inappropriate for a head of state to question our laws, especially when the state of Arizona only acted in the best interest of its citizens and with the support of seventy percent of its people.”
Weasel Zippers has the scoop.
UPDATE II: Rep. McClintock delivers a magnificent slap-down here.
