Run For The Border!

So our Decider-in-Chief has decidered to enlist the National Guard in the border patrol effort (at least for the southern border anyway). Think this has anything to do with his upcoming national address on immigration?

But is this move even practical, given how our military is already overstretched as it is? What does Bush hope to accomplish here besides peddling to his xenophobic base? Is he putting on a bit of border security theater? Is it a cry for help? Or is he finally getting serious about border security, since he and been so serious in the past?

Like most of Bush's deciderations, this one is all show and no substance.
