“What’s up with Arizona politicians?” indeed


Only a couple of days after Napolitano’s ignorant remarks about the Canadian border and her assertion that the 9/11 terrorists crossed into the US from Canada, Arizona Senator John McCain tells Fox News, "Well, some of the 9/11 hijackers did come through Canada, as you know."

As Forrest Gump would say, “Stupid is as stupid does.”

Remember, their state is full of yahoos riding on horseback and ATVs (with guns, of course) looking for illegal border crossers. The live in constant paranoia that their nation is being "overrun" by outsiders. It's only natural for them to assume that their borders are being permeated from all sides.

Of course, it's much easier for someone to simply come ashore ANYWHERE along the US coast in a zodiac... They're wasting their time and money on the land borders on both sides. At least land borders are policed and patrolled. The 1000s of KM of coastline is only "watched" by a handful of small Coast Guard vessels. With all the commercial traffic stow-aways (or non-stowaways) can easily drop off a cargo ship, and zodiac it to an unpopulated shore in a few seconds - completely unimpeded.

These people don't seem to use either of two hemispheres very often, eh?

McCain's either very stupid or so partisan he can't think straight. I remember him during the primary debates and campaign claiming (re universal health care) - just look at Canada and how bad it is - they can't even pick their own doctors.

Duh - clueless or a big fat liar.

I know we shouldn't be surprised, but hope springs eternal as they say, and maybe... just maybe one day they'll realize they are not the only people that matter in the world.
