700 Mile Long Fence, with a 1,400 Mile Long Gate

Offering up dramatic proof that politicians can't do simple math, President Bush hails a new 700 mile long border fence as victory in stopping illegal immigration.

It looks good on paper, until you realize, no money's been put aside to build it. Guess contractors will have to cut cost by hiring illegals.

Considering that the US-Mexican border is 2,100 miles long, this could explain why we have a deficit. This "victory" also explains why the administration thinks we've got another "victory" in Iraq.

Lessee, the fence covers only one-third of the border. Hey, Mission Accomplished! (AP)
