The Great Wall of Sensenbrenner

Our boy, Rep. F. Jim Sensenbrenner, is the proud sponsor of an anti-immigration bill that, among other things, would make it a crime to be in the US illegally or to offer aid to an illegal immigrant. Sounds like a full-employment bill for prison-builders.

He also wants to build a 700-mile wall along the US-Mexican border, on the theory that if we don't fight them on the Rio Grande we'll be fighting them on Mitchell Street.

Hmmm ... building prisons ... a 700-mile wall. Do you think this is F's idea of a job-creating public works bill? Will the building trades unions support it?

Joel McNally has a few pithy comments. And no, I don't have a lisp.
