When they’re not attacking the First Amendment, Republicans are still busy going after the 14th Amendment. Now Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty has joined the discordant chorus calling for change to the 14th Amendment. Does Minnesota have a lot to fear from Mexican immigrants crossing the border to have babies? Not unless they’re crossing the Canadian border. Pawlenty is also calling for Minnesota to make English its official language. Really, why stop there? Why not force everybody to talk with that Midwestern accent? And from now on, everyone must refer to a couch as a davenport, and call a water fountain a bubbler. Finally, if you listen to the show, you know Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is a big fan of using private prisons. Recently three violent criminals escaped from one of Jan’s corporate cabooses. They cut a hole in the fence! And Brewer is always complaining about the federal government and border security. How can they complain about keeping immigrants out of the country when they can’t even keep killers behind bars? Here’s an idea, Jan—let the federal government handle border security. You just try and keep the murderers from cutting holes in fences.
