"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Toadying Up To Immigrant Amphibians ...

Oftentimes legal immigration doesn't work out so well either...

Cross from Red Hot Cuppa Politics:

And we thought we had illegal immigrant invasion problems here in the USA!

From Breitbart, via Drudge:

An Australian state government called for the army to be deployed against an invasion of toxic toads.

Battalions of imported cane toads are marching relentlessly across
northern Australia and the West Australian government wants soldiers to intercept the environmental barbarians...

State Environment Minister Mark McGowan has written to Defence Minister Brendan Nelson asking permission to use soldiers based in the neighbouring Northern Territory to kill the toads.
Of course, they came to Australia to do the job other toads won't do!

The toads, Bufo Marinus, were introduced from South America into northeast Queensland state in the 1930s to control another pest -- beetles that were ravaging the sugar cane fields of the tropical northern coasts.

But the toads now number in the millions and are spreading westward through the Northern Territory, upsetting the country's ecosystem in their wake.
There's an object lesson in here somewhere ...

For the latest on illegal immigration reform, click to the CoalitionBlog. Inmuscatine points out that illegals are destroying national parks, and how the media's missing it. And, with your morning coffee, click here to Darrell's article about how taxpayer money, funding construction projects is also funding illegal immigrant workers.
