Canada’s National Post asked in a recent editorial: "Can someone please tell us how U. S. Secretary of Homeland Security Janet Napolitano got her job?" Napolitano had equated the threat at our Canadian border with the threat at our Mexican border because (she wrongly claimed) 9/11 terrorists had come through Canada.
Napolitano: Obama’s New Gaffe Czar
By Asher Embry
O, Canada! It's earned a reputation for aplomb,
But what Napolitano did sent billows through its calm.
She said she'd treat our borders -- north and south -- about the same;
For border threats we face, both neighbors share an equal blame.
Though Mexico has kidnaps, murder, violence and drugs;
Canada, she wrongly claimed, let through al-Qaeda thugs.
It's sadly not the first time that her comments were bizarre.
She may in fact unseat Joe Biden as our new gaffe czar.
She said: illicit border crossing's "not a crime per se."
So why do we keep calling them "illegals" anyway?
And since her diatribe about conservatives and vets,
A wave of disbelief that she's the best our safety gets.
With our homeland security at stake, nobody laughs,
When "woman-caused" disasters keep resulting from her gaffes.
