Apparently Bush intends to "secure the border" using the National Guard. That's expected to be part of his Monday speech. Huh?
- What National Guard? Didn't they use up that pool of cannon fodder in Iraq?
- Don't they know who joins the Guard: enterprising young people seeking a way up. Wonder how many are Latino?
- Apparently Bush wants to make himself into Pete Wilson. This move may serve him in this year's elections, but the Republicans can forget the Latino vote, especially after some National Guardsman shoots some unfortunate U.S. citizen who happens to be brown.
