MILLINOCKET, Maine, June 16, 2014 ― Last Thursday, Louisiana Democratic Senator Mary Landrieu was speaking out against South Dakota Republican Senator John Thune’s proposal to build a border fence before any amnesty for illegal aliens occurs.
She said, “A smart fence which is what Senator 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.”
Not too long ago, the political gods of “Massa-two-setts” were able to send a fake Indian to the Senate. Now they are prepping Ed Markey, Democrat, for a stint as a Senator. (Author’s note: In the inset picture of Ed Markey above, there is another person sitting directly behind him, nearly fully obscured by Ed’s hair. This makes it appear that Ed’s left ear is falling off!)
In a recent debate with his rival, Republican Gabriel Gomez, Mr. Markey, in referring to the debt, claimed, “…it’s really not math, it’s arithmetic….”
Forget fuzzy math, if the trend continues, voters in the Bay State will soon send a fuzzy arithmetician to the U.S. Senate. At least Joe Biden will be able discuss budgets with someone.
