With Gov Perry
Sean Hannity is personally patrolling the border with Gov. Rick Perry today. That would be the two of them with what appears to be a boat-mounted machine gun, presumably defending us from the hordes of immigrant children we've been hearing so much about these days. Other pictures on Hannity's feed have the man surrounded by a veritable forest of weapons, and doesn't he look happy? I guess since the president didn't want to go play soldier with Rick Perry, he's gotten Hannity to do it.

In an interview with Hannity yesterday, Perry continued his demands that Obama send the National Guard into his state to defend the border, which is perhaps the first time in a long while that a southern-state governor demanded a president send troops into his state. He also put a special emphasis on dismissing all the border plans that do not involve sending troops to presumably shoot at the people trying to cross the border; he doesn't care what the solution is, so long as the solution involves lots of people with guns.

God help us, next thing you know we're going to have John McCain demanding air strikes on migrant kids. And the House will be declaring that our new War On Tiny Refugees will of course be exempt from budget constraints because anything with "war" in it is automatically free.

Not a lot of tools in that Republican toolbox, though the picture above shows three of them.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
