I’m running for Congress. How many congressmen or people running for Congress have you heard, put a fence up and start shooting? None? Well you heard it here first. Put troops on the border and start shooting, I bet that solves our immigration problem real quick.

When you’re making statements like that, it’s cheap and it’s easy and it will get a lot of attention very quickly. But anything that comes cheap and easy probably isn’t that interesting and isn’t going to last.
~ Megan McCain quoted by Wonkette
Does this moron understand that shooting over the border is considered an act of war?

Sam Not the Plumber's declaration of War on Mexico is just to solidify his position of Secretary of State in the Romney administration.

I wonder how Joe Wurzelbacher would react if some Mexicans said that they should put up a fence and start shooting Americans.
