Shrillary: "GOP would criminalize Jesus"

This must be a terrifying piece of news for the left. I mean, Her Highness is using the "J" word...Jesus! The MoveOn types must be aghast that she would mention religion at all, much less the central figure of the dominant American religion.

Her Highness, ever vigilant in her quest to appeal to red state Americans who actually believe in Jesus, used an ingenious approach to attract said red staters: insult them!
2008 presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is blasting a GOP-backed immigration bill, claiming bizarrely that the legislation would "literally criminalize . . . . probably even Jesus himself."

Clinton invoked the biblical themes on Wednesday while restating her opposition to a bill sponsored by Rep. James Sensenbrenner that would make illegally entering the U.S. a felony.

Surrounded by what the Associated Press described as "a multicultural coalition of New York immigration advocates," the former first lady ripped the GOP bill as "mean-spirited" - insisting that it flew in the face of Republicans' stated support for faith and values.

"It is certainly not in keeping with my understanding of the Scriptures," she declared, before adding: "This bill would literally criminalize the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself."
Oh, where to start?

1. Her "understanding of the Scriptures"? That is arguably one of the richest statements I have ever heard come from her and her hubby combined. That ranks right up there with "It depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is." Quick, Hill: name the first four chapters of the New Testament!

2. Can someone explain to me how criminalizing behavior that is already illegal would be akin to "literally criminalizing the Good Samaritan and probably even Jesus himself"?

3. The "Queen of the Document Shredder", who has the nastiest of temperments and despises our soldiers (at least, when they were guarding her and her hubby's miserable lives), who "can't be responsible for every undercapitalized business" that would have been killed by her socialist health plan, is going to accuse anyone of bad "faith and values"? A Clinton is questioning anyone's faith and morals? Are you freakin' kidding me?

4. Does anyone other than me question the wisdom of trying to appeal to religious voters of the opposition party by accusing them of trying to criminalize the Almighty? If her people had briefed her on Jesus' crucifixion, whereby Jesus was convicted of "criminal behavior" before he was tortured and killed (sidebar: are we sure those who killed him weren't Muslim? That's their modus operandi, you know!), she may have dropped out early from the Dick Durbin School of Sh#tty Analogies and used a different metaphor.

What's next, "Support me or Jesus will hate you"? Maybe "Vote against this bill, or you're going to Hell"? Perhaps "Vote for this bill, and Jesus will stop loving you!" Good God (insert deity here), the possibilities are limitless with this woman!

5. I guess we should cut her a little slack. Democrats have a hard time understanding this religion thingee, so I guess it's to be expected that they'll have some growing pains trying to adapt.

The legislation would instruct law enforcement to seek out illegal aliens and cut federal funding for cities, such as San Francisco, that have sanctuary laws.

Other provisions include the creation of a border fence, the elimination of the diversity visa lottery system and the indefinite detention of some immigrants.

In 2003 Mrs. Clinton blurted out during a radio interview that she was "adamantly opposed to illegal immigrants." But her actions never lived up to the tough talk.

Two weeks ago Clinton announced her support for a defacto amnesty program that she said would grant illegal aliens "a path to earned citizenship for those who are here, working hard, paying taxes [and] respecting the law."
Don't be a Kerry, Shrillary! Pick a freakin' position and stick with it! Normal America is against illegal immigration, and the those who continue to fight efforts to curb illegal immigration will do so at their own peril.
