Mr. Miller, Tear Down This Wall!

According to several sources, Joe Miller, when asked this afternoon, at a candidate forum at Clark Middle School, near downtown Anchorage, how we should better protect our borders, he invoked the kind of solution that would make Josef Stalin proud:

it was a question posed to him by a like minded supporter that provided the most jaw dropping moment of the town hall.

A gentleman ask Teabagger Joe how he felt about the illegal immigrant problem, and made sure that everybody understood he was speaking of "illegal" immigrants.

Joe quickly went through his talking points about national security and the illegal activity engaged in by the people coming over the border from Mexico, and then reiterated that the first priority was to build a fence.

Then things got a little surreal.

In his xenophobic zeal Miller asked how hard could it be to build a fence? After all, and this is a direct quote, "If East Germany can do it, we can do it!"
That's our Joe the Teabagger.

My reply will be
a paraphrase of the words of Sarah Palin's 2nd favorite American, Ronald Reagan:

I welcome change and openness. I'd like to see some openness from Joe Miller on just how he hacked, then erased his co-workers' computers. For I believe that freedom, security and honesty go together, that the advance of human liberty can only strengthen the cause of world peace.

There is one sign that Joe Miller can make that would be unmistakable, that would advance dramatically the cause of political honesty and transparency.

Candidate Miller, if you seek office, if you seek political power for your party and yourself, if you seek liberalization, com to the gate of honesty. Mr. Miller, open that gate.

Mr. Miller, tear down this wall between you and the truth!
