Whoever Runs Against Mel “the Mushroom” Martinez This Time Around?

I’m voting for him. (I don’t care if it’s Scott the Hutt from Travelodge or a Broward County Wexlar type. But I AM looking like a genius, since I didn’t vote for the moron to begin with. ) Michelle Malkin has the last straw nicely covered.

S.Amdt.4188 – Specter: Managers’ amendment, a collection of amendments, including Dodd’s S.Amdt.4089 that requires local, state and federal governments to consult with Mexican counterpart authorities before commencing new construction, was PASSED on a 56 – 41 vote.
Republicans who voted for the Mexican consultation requirement:
Bennett, Bond, Brownback, Chafee, Coleman, Collins, Craig, Graham, Hagel, Lugar, Feingold, Collins, McCain, Specter, Stevens, Warner, Martinez, Murkowski, Snowe and Voinovich

Consult with Mexican authorities for what? Where to put the holes? And what happens if, say, Sheriff Jose Frijole in Yuma, who also has to get re-elected by voters who WANT A FENCE ~ and a big, high one ~ says “bite me” to the Feds y Federales?
As for El Presidente Fox in the Hen House, major dad heard John Gibson ask a few pertinent questions I thought I’d share (In the extended entry). They make sense to me. Don’t hold your breath for the answers. Apparently Sr. Fox doesn’t choose to provide any. Ever.
Time to flood the House of Representatives with firm language. Help me, Obi Wan Ke Miller! You’re my only hope.
UPDATE: All the more reason to be pi$$ed about this vote…

Mexico’s Fox Praises U.S. Immigration Vote
…Instead, he praised the Senate’s action, which would tighten border security and create a path to citizenship for many of the estimated 11 to 12 million immigrants in the country illegally.
Fox’s visit has stirred passions among the fiercest partisans in the immigration debate. Some Republican lawmakers boycotted his speech, while others attended wearing yellow buttons that said, “No mas,” which they said meant no more illegal immigration.
Mexico has much more strict immigration laws than we do, yet they criticize us, said [CA] Assembly Republican leader George Plescia. “I don’t think that’s right.”
But Democrats embraced Fox, as did Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who is trying to regain the trust of Hispanic voters in time for the fall election.

I like that Plescia guy.


First: Don’t you feel a little moronic that one in ten Mexicans are forced to leave their home country and live in a foreign country, the USA?
Second: Why is your country so corrupt it cannot support your own people? After all, Mexico is the second largest importer of oil to the United States, outranking even Saudi Arabia.
Third: President Fox, have you noticed how Saudis live? Why can’t Mexicans live like that if you’ve got so much oil? Why are they beating down the doors to get out of their oil-rich country? Do you see Saudis trying to sneak into Yemen?
Fourth: Aren’t you embarrassed that the so-called remittances from expatriate Mexicans — illegal aliens living in America — actually dwarf income derived from selling oil to the U.S.? How can $6, $8, $10 an hour Mexicans send more dollars home each month than your country sells in oil? Isn’t this a huge embarrassment to you and your country?
Fifth: Don’t you want Mexicans living in Mexico? Why does 40 percent of your country want to leave? Why is 20 percent willing to leave illegally?
Sixth: How much money is in your bank account as you leave office? Have you been ripping off the country like virtually every presidente before you?
Seventh: Drug lords beheaded two of your federal police recently and the decapitated heads stuck on a fence outside a government building as a warning to your government. Why isn’t your government winning a war with simple drug dealers?

    Re. #3, it’s actually a good thing, because the oil-based idleness of Saudi youth is what’s fueling the religious problems there (and here).
    Idle hands are the devil’s workshop, you know.

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    I thought we were the Great Satan, John?

    Uh, really, that’s an embarrassing question for an American to ask.
    I do find it ironic that Fox should lecture us on immigration the same day that we read about Mexico deporting Cubans.

  4. To a certain extent that’s true, Mr. Summers. But we ARE at least further along than the ‘heads on pikes’ stage. I hope.

  5. Nightfly says:

    If we were really the imperialist bastards everyone takes us for, this would be simple – we’d conquer Mexico. It’s a hell of a lot easier to defend a fifty-mile long land border than a 1500-mile long one.

  6. We already DID conquer it once and gave the damn thing back. That seems to be an ongoing theme of ours.

  7. The_Real_JeffS says:

    I’m not sure that I want Mexico to be part of the United States, anyway. Unless we can deport some Mexicans as undesirables. Fox comes to mind.
    And besides, there’s something to be said for putting heads on pikes. Barbaric but effective.
