Perhaps Democrats misunderstood the question. After all, Jesus is a common name for Hispanic males, so Democrats might have been confused about who was coming and who they might be voting for in future elections in their new status as "displaced foreign tourists" (the new label offered by a U.S. Department of Forestry official).
That was a belief that arose during the Bush years to keep us from going stark raving mad.
But Shelley, what will arise during the Obama years to keep from going stark raving mad? Something soon, I hope.
