Rule 5 and Immigration Policy

Posted on | February 23, 2013 | 17 Comments

Years ago, I propounded Rule 5 — “Everybody Loves a Pretty Girl” — as one of the secrets of blogging success. And I have also stipulated that, despite my somewhere-to-the-right-of-Tom-Tancredo stance against illegal immigration, I’m firmly opposed to a crackdown on beauty queens who have overstayed their visas: Bring me your tired, your poor, your Miss Universe contestants yearning to breathe free.

So . . . some people don’t seem to appreciate the humor in that.

“Tough room,” as they say.

    Be on the lookout for Aztec Jaguar gods, is my advice.

    There is no such thing as bad publicity, Stace.

    The popularity of HuffPo is just another indictment of our government-run education system.

    There’s a Mexican feminazi lurking in the background, Stacy. Better put on your Kevlar reinforced jock strap. Just in case.

    Can’t people take a joke anymore?

    Just give them a temporary work visa and let it expire. They’ll get to stay and be eligible for an amnesty deal. Sí Sí Se Puede

    I retweeted RR’s post and PuffHo didn’t contact me for a comment and I hate, hate, hate illegal immigrants!

    But that’s okay, ’cause I’m chopped liver…and chopped liver has no feelings.

    Rule 5 ought to be a complete defense to most violations of immigration law. There simply is no such thing as too many beautiful women.

    This is PuffHo we’re talking about, so no.

    We whupped them once with fairly primitive weapons; given today’s technology things should go even faster.

    The lack of feeling may be the result of Maker’s Mark.

    I feel bad you stole my “Hot chicks from all over the world” immigration policy. So many countries so many beautiful women.

    When’s the last time their “Latino Voices” section reached out to you for a quote, Stacy? Too funny.
