An iron curtain has descended across the continent…

… of North America:

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Tuesday said that an amendment advanced by the Senate would leave the U.S. with the “most militarized border” since the fall of the Berlin Wall and pave the way for the passage of comprehensive immigration reform.

“The legislation concerning beefed up border security removes any validity to the argument that border security is not sufficient,” McCain said of the amendment from Sens. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) and John Hoeven (R-N.D.) in an interview on CNN.

“I mean this is not only sufficient, it is well over-sufficient. We’ll be the most militarized border since the fall of the Berlin Wall. That’s why I think this amendment was very important,” he added.

Being proud of building a new Berlin Wall makes me think the U.S. is the land of the afraid, and home of the craven.

    Watching the video it seems clear that Sen John McCain thinks this bill is pretty foolish.
    Sen. Marco Rubio, one of the authors of the bill to amend the immigration and citizenship status.
    Meanwhile The Prez is touring Africa, something about Missionary Soup.

    Sorry, I meant to say that Sen McCain thinks that the security fence is pretty stupid.
