It still boggles my mind that some of these legisleeches wind up in Congress and in the Senate, elected time and time again by people who are so stupid, they need a calculator to help them estimate change from the $5 bill they handed over for a $2.95 purchase.
Case in point, we have Mary Landrieu (D-umbass) from Louisiana. This is the same corrupt dimwit who was essentially bribed with a $100 million federal Medicaid subsidy for Louisiana in order to get her to vote in favor of ObamaCare. This time Mary showed her ever- reddening ass during a speech criticizing efforts by some Republicans to secure the border before legalizing millions of illegal aliens. This time she was a geography fail. A MASSIVE FAIL.
“I chair the Homeland Security Appropriations Committee that is actually building the fence,” she continued. “The money to build it comes through my committee, so I’ve actually gone down to look at the fence that we’re trying to build. It was shocking to me and would be shocking to everyone in America if they would see it, that no matter if you build a single fence or a double fence with space in between, how easy it is for people to be very ingenious about getting over it or under it. So I would be voting against Sen. Thune’s amendment because I’m not going to waste taxpayer money on a dumb fence. And that’s what his amendment would be.”
“We need to build a smart fence,” she continued. “And a fence is not just a physical structure which could be built out of a variety of different materials with or without barbed wire on the top. A smart fence which is what Sen. McCain and I want to build — since he’s from Arizona, I think he knows more about this than the senator from South Dakota who doesn’t have a border with Mexico, but only Canada and that is quite different. I think Sen. McCain would say if he were on the floor that we absolutely want to build a barrier of security, and that will be a combination of a physical structure that is built to the great standards that we can with the technology that will actually shut down illegal immigration. It is not correct for anybody listening to this debate to think that people on the Democratic side of this aisle or people supporting this bill do not want to secure the border. Nothing could be further from the truth. But I can tell you — I may be overridden. People may vote against it, but I’m going to hold the position that we cannot waste billions and billions and billions and billions of dollars building a fence that doesn’t hold anybody on one side or the other. We have wasted enough taxpayer money.”
Let’s put aside for a moment the fact that this is a person who was elected to make laws that would ostensibly protect and secure this nation. Let’s put aside for a second the fact that this hypocritical sow was bribed – BRIBED – into supporting a bill that will waste billions in taxpayer dollars, after she was essentially tossed $100 million more in taxpayer money for her state! And now she’s whining about a measure proposed to shore up the security of this country, even as she claims she and her idiot pals really do want to secure the border – they just don’t want to spend the money to secure it, because it’s… a dumb fence (sayeth the idiot who thinks South Dakota borders Canada).
Let’s put that aside and focus on the fact that this daft bint doesn’t know basic geography! She doesn’t understand that the fact that we have a South Dakota usually means that somewhere there is a North Dakota or a Dakota that is north of South Dakota, and therefore it is unlikely that South Dakota would border Canada.
Just in case Mary Landrieu was wondering, here is South Dakota.
And this is the person who has been elected by the people of Louisiana to represent them in the Senate since 1996. This is the state that’s got some of the lowest high school graduation rates in the country. That would explain quite a bit.
Of course, her buddy Harry Reid tried to push an amendment classifying Nevada as a border state yesterday, so maybe the definition of a “border state” might be in order here. Hint: It’s not merely a state that has borders.
