Pete Wilson and the Statue of Liberty

Mon, 28 Aug 1995 08:34:00 CDT

Did the irony strike anybody else out there? Pete Wilson, who seems to be
making his presidential bid as a champion AGAINST immigrant and minority
populations in the US, will announce his candidacy for the presidency (again) in
New York today -- IN FRONT OF THE STATUE OF LIBETY!!!! Now, what better place
to show off his platform and his record than the country's most visible and
tangible monument to the immigrants that are today's ordinary "Americans" -- and
many of those would not be considered strictly "legal" immigrants.

Hmm. I can't believe these guys are that stupid, so the only other possibility
I can imagine is that they are manipulating our national symbols on purpose.
