Must be all those headless bodies exploding…

Just read that John McCain is blaming the Arizona wildfires on illegal immigrants.  Ah.  So I guess we’ll have to rephrase Smokey the Bear’s famous warning to read, Remember, Only Illegal Immigrants Can Cause Forest (or desert) Fires.

Of course, when you have thousands of people traversing thousands of square miles of land as quietly and covertly as they can, somebody is going to do something stupid.  But to blame ALL the fires on illegals?

Oh, I forgot…there is no global warming, so it can’t be anything else.  Unless it was a non-illegal person.  But what would they be doing there?  Therefore, whoever done it must have been illegal.  Or something like that.

And what about that global economy that forces these people to cross  borders to find work at pittance wages with no benefits (and they don’t pay taxes either because they are usually PAID UNDER THE TABLE) except for what is routinely offered to the poor at the cost of the rest of us because we have no socialized medicine except for Medicare/Medicaid which the teabaggers want to get rid of because they don’t want death panels and social benefits are too expensive but wars are not?  Oh, I forgot.  TOO FREAKING COMPLICATED for Senator McCain to ponder.

(Yes, your head must be spinning after reading that last paragraph, but believe me, it would be spinning less if you accepted that there is nothing evil about socialized medicine.  The only evil is the people who have decided that it has already failed even though it hasn’t even begun — I can think of a right-wing radio yapper or two who are telling their minions that over and over and over again, until it sinks into whatever is left of brains between their ears.  The Big Lie thing, you know, kinda like when they kept asking if Obama had fixed the economy yet long before he was sworn in as President.)

And so we are left with this: Illegal Immigrants Cause Forest Fires.  Simple as black and white.  And don’t you forget it.

I’ll be getting to the matter of the Supreme Court vs. women later on this week.  But first, let me offer Senator McCain the Stupid of the Day Award.  He’s earned it.
