Howard Dean: Heartthrob of the RNC

The Republican Party will use the immigration issue to divide the country, he says.
See if you can find the funny in this snippet:

"Once again, the Republicans created problems so they think they can come in and solve them," Dean told DNC members meeting in Phoenix.

Thousands of illegal immigrants cross America's borders each year to work better-paying jobs.

Heh, as the man says.

Dean said the government should have an "earned legalization" program in which immigrants who contribute to society and pay taxes should be able to earn the right to become citizens.

So the incentive to legally enter the country is...?

The DNC chairman also criticized Bush for not working with Mexico to confront America's immigration problems. "Work with Mexico to improve economies in rural America and rural Mexico, and you will stop the flood of people wanting to come to America," Dean said.

DAMMIT. If he weren't so dreamy, I'd almost be getting angry with him here.

Mexico has a successful economic model to follow if it chooses, right here in plain sight, where it has been for a couple centuries. We aren't exactly keeping it a secret, guys.
And yet Mexico's government is quasi-socialist, corrupt as all get-out, and prints pamphlets on how to illegally cross into the U.S.
And we give them aid money.

What, precisely, are we supposed to help them with?

Howard, can you get a little more specific?

Seriously, you're losing me. I'm just a small businesswoman. Speak slowly and use the little words.
