Editorial(s) of the day

With Congress and the President debating immigration, all eyes turned towards Senator Hillary Clinton, who objected to a bill which would make illegally entering this country a felony, instead of a misdemeanor. In Senator Clinton's words:

"It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures," Clinton said, "because this bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself."

I was surprised to see nothing in the editorials about this. Last night, both Bill O'Reilly and Lou Dobbs led off their shows with this story. Considering it happened on Wednesday, you would think someone would have an opinion by Friday morning.

Thank god for Neal Boortz and the Confederate Yankee!

Boortz finishes his editorial on Hillary's immigration stand with this classic paragraph:

"We now see yet another example of a politician with no soul...someone who will grab power any way she can. And to think she could be our new commander in-chief. Come to think of it, that might help the illegal immigration problem...people will be heading for the border!"


Confederate Yankee has this scorching reply to Hillary's comment:

"Senator, I doubt you even know what the Good Book looks like, but please have your campaign researchers at least make a pass at reading the New Testament before you try to rewrite Luke 10:25-37.

The Good Samaritan, like the priest and the Levite, was an Israeli, and Samaritans exist to this day inside Holon, Israel, and Nablus in the West Bank. The proposed law would not criminalize the Good Samaritan, because he, too is a native citizen of Israel. Jesus Christ, like the Good Samaritan, is also a native son, and not an illegal immigrant.

Your comments, Senator Clinton, were not just calculated to be inflammatory, they were laughably ignorant. Perhaps the next time you are seen near a Bible for a photo-op, you should consider opening it.

On a completely unrelated note, there is a great joke over at Boortz's website, "How To Guarantee Yourself A Ticket".
