MICKEY KAUS on the fence: “Note that the Bush administration, despite Tony Snow’s seemingly straightforward promises (‘[T]he fence is going to be built’), has recently indicated that it plans to rely on a ‘virtual fence,’ not an actual fence. Again, what’s odd is not that the administration has come out against an actual, physical barrier. That’s obviously been Bush’s real position all along. What’s odd is that they’d reveal this real position while ‘comprehensive’ reform is being debated–instead of at least dangling the possibility of a real fence in front of anti-amnesty conservatives.” Give ‘em credit for honesty, I guess . . . .
