      And the fence is REALLY impressive. I wouldn't want to try climbing it. Would make a good bridge if laid down flat, however.

      If we could build one around the Republican caucus, we'd really have something.

        strand barbwire fences I used to climb over, crawl under or jump as a kid. It's an environmental outrage. That's one reason they like it.

        It's a big "We're Racists" wall, symbolizing our bigotry every bit as much as the Iron Curtain symbolized a totalitarian state.
