Minutemen: Declaring Victory and Getting Out

Minutemen: Declaring Victory and Getting Out

The story got stepped on just a little with Schaivo-mania followed by the Popeathon:

"As soon as the media packed up and left, they left as well. All they accomplished was being a hindrance to the Border Patrol and creating international hard feelings. Their biggest accomplishment was getting the media's attention. It was, as the Mexicans say, all song and no opera."

Even at the end they got overshadowed - on theor own issue, even - by AHnold:

In his remarks Tuesday, Schwarzenegger told journalists: “Close the borders in California and all across Mexico and in the United States."

Apparantly the Governator meant to say he prefers shopping for books online at Amazon.

The unintentional humor was nearly as bad as my own: the CBS headline Arnold: Border Remark Crossed Line and Schwarzenegger's own attempts to blame his immigrant bashing on his poor command of the English language.
