02/27/08 - A New York Attorney Thinks Michelle Obama May Not Have Passed The Bar Exam

Re: Brenda Walker`s Blog: McCain Prays For Amnesty Amnesia

Some months ago Sen. John McCain, now the Republican nominee apparent, said that Americans wouldn`t pick lettuce even for $50 an hour. 

Apparently he received hundreds of calls the next day from citizens asking where they could sign up for just such labor.  I called and was hung up on by a staffer who snarled: "Sen. McCain thanks you for your offer" before I could complete my first sentence. 

Recently, McCain left a recorded message asking for my vote in the Washington primary, which he won easily, claiming that he is for border enforcement -  "first", as he slyly put it. 

Then McCain added that he would oppose earmarks if elected. 

But what has his tireless advocacy of unimpeded entry into the U.S. of millions of low paid workers been but a giant camouflaged earmark?  Wealthy growers, who double as lavish campaign contributors, are furnished with a commodity that fattens profits, while the true costs of the commodity in terms of it`s impact on education, health care and criminal justice are shifted to the taxpayers. 

One thing we can be sure of: the prestige media will let him get away with it while extensively covering the peripheral issue about his relationship with lobbyist Vicki Iseman.

Corkery is an alumnus of Notre Dame who served in the U.S. Marines. He became an officer of a New York Stock Exchange member firm that, according to him, "long ago became lost in the dismal swamp of political correctness." 

Adds Corkery: "I admired Mexicans while living in Mexico, but doesn`t share George Bush`s deranged obsession that Americans need to be displaced with Mexicans or any other foreigners."
