Fred Thompson, the
Great White Hope yet undeclared presidential hopeful, put his big fat foot in his big fat mouth accidentally said what he really thinks said in a speech in South Carolina on Wednesday (from Media Matters):
We’re catching, over a period of years, thousands of illegal immigrants coming from southern borders that are non-fence-able. Many of them come from terrorist-related states. We were just talking earlier, and I remember the figure that stuck out to me — in the year 2005, we apprehended over 1,000 folks that originally has come from Cuba. If they’re coming from Cuba, where else are they coming from? And I don’t imagine they’re coming here to bring greetings from Castro. We’re living in the era of the suitcase bomb.
Geesh. Not only does he insult an entire group of people, but he uses really crappy grammar in doing so. “Folks that originally has come?” Fred’s taking grammar lessons from Chimpy! No Rethuglican Left Behind program perhaps?
