OK, it’s going from sublime to rediculous, or maybe rediculous to rediculouser, take ur pick.
First Christine “I am not a witch” O’Donnell says the First Amendment doesn’t separate Church from State, which is silly enough, since there isn’t a document anywhere in the country more unambiguous than the First Amendment. But now that nut Joe Miller in Alaska, the one who wants to cut Alaska off the federal gravy train (and I’m not for one second saying that is a bad idea) wants to bring back the good old days — or should I say Gute Alte Tage? — of the East German Iron Curtain/Berlin Wall.
Yeah, those were the day. Ah, the nostalgia!
Seriously. Here’s the report (click) He says those East Germans sure knew how to secure a border. Well, yeah, and Ronald Reagan told them to tear the wall down. What next, change the National Anthem to “America, America Uber Alles?”
This reminds me of the time I was having an email discussion with a local otherwise-intelligent-woman who said the way to solve the Mexican border problem was to shoot anyone sneaking across.
“With what?” I asked. “The melted down Statue of Liberty?”
You know, that thing with the “give me your tired, hungry, yearning to breathe free” crap written down on it somewhere. So 19th Century.
The East German border included automatic machine guns and mine fields. I’m sure, if Miller asks, a retired member of the Stasi (East Germany’s version of the Gestapo) will be happy to come out of retirement and consult.
Channeling East Germany fits right in. Newt Gingrich wants the US to adopt the religions principles of Saudi Arabia (remember he said we’ll allow mosques when they allow synagogues?) and God only knows what O’Donnell wants. She claims she’s not a witch, but Nixon claimed he wasn’t a crook and we know how that turned out.
