When George Bush routinely self-congratulates himself that there hasn’t been another terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 9/11 (although there was an attack on 9/11), what he fails to mention is that it was due to pure luck, not competence or vigilance.
In yet another episode of comical buffoonery, Michael Chertoff, the head of the Department of Homeland Security, had a house cleaning company coming to his home for the last three years that hired illegal aliens. Some of these individuals did not have proper documentation, and some had outright fraudulent documents.
It is the job of the Secret Service to vet these companies and make sure Chertoff doesn’t have bin laden coming over to clean his toilet. The Secret Service says they aren’t immigration enforcers, and ICE should have done the job. Apparently, all Chertoff knows is that his toilet is nice and clean. Sure, they’re parading the company out there now, and they’ll probably be run out of business. The question remains though: How did this company get past the highest levels of government security and actually into the home of the head of Homeland Security? Do you feel safer tonight? Anybody could have been working for that company, and no one raised an eyebrow for years.
Well, it could have been worse. Skeletor apparently didn’t know that illegal workers were employed by this company, and thus far, there is no evidence that any of the illegal workers actually went to Chertoff’s residence. Right. At least he’s not being accused of actually harboring an illegal alien, like the useless border official Lorraine Henderson is accused of doing.
Harry Reid says he doesn’t see much opposition to another amnesty bill this year. Of course he said the markets would plunge unless we bailed out the car dinosaurs. You know, I couldn’t be that exquisitely wrong, so much and so often and remain employed like him. Not unless I was illegal I guess…
