Bush Links Foley to Immigration

I’ve seen politicians stretch to link things together but you would need a very long fence to link these two subjects together.

“The question we need to be asking ourselves is not if Mark Foley behaved improperly,” Mr. Bush said. “The question we need to ask is, were these congressional pages in our country legally?”

Mr. Bush said he would ask Congress to appropriate $84 million to investigate the legal status of all congressional pages at once: “What we may be seeing is an orchestrated attempt by 16-year-old boys with hot bodies to swarm into our country and tempt our lawmakers.”

In this day and age I would put nothing past what this Preznit might say. And shame on Yahoo news for not putting a disclaimer up, I was about to call my Senator on this one.

    So Yahoo News thinks it’s The Onion now.

  2. Steve O Says :

    Yeah Caig, that’s what I was thinking. It was listed under entertainment but kinda discredits Yahoo news don’t you think?

  3. Craig R. Harmon Says :

    Yes and no. To their credit, it was in the Entertainment section. On the other hand, it was on the Yahoo News pages with no clear labelling of it as opinion or satire until you read the end.

    On the other hand, from the very beginning, there was just no way it could have been serious. Not even Bush is that far out…well, in my opinion. From your point of view, on the other hand, it probably wasn’t immediately obvious that it was satire. Not a knock against you. Just saying that from the point of view of many of Bush’s critics, there’s just nothing that Bush won’t say.

    Anyway, glad you didn’t call your Senator over it. Now that would have been a red-faced moment.
