Outsourcing Run A Mock

Andy Borowitz, proprietor of the puntastic Borowitz Report had another of his funny yet oh so convincing "reports" the other day regarding the immigration bill which failed in Congress. Here's some choice grafs:
In an attempt to break the nagging logjam over immigration, congressional leaders announced today that they were hiring illegal immigrants to write the nation's new immigration bill.

While some observers criticized the decision to employ illegals to draft the very bill that would regulate themselves, Sen. John Kyl (R-Arizona) said that the move was a "win-win" for the American people.

"No one understands the thorny issue of immigration better than the people who have been sneaking into our country," Mr. Kyl said. "Plus, these folks work cheap."

You know what they say about life imitating art? Well:
The California Republican Party has decided no American is qualified to take one of its most crucial positions — state deputy political director — and has hired a Canadian for the job through a coveted H-1B visa, a program favored by Silicon Valley tech firms that is under fire for displacing skilled American workers.

This really is just too funny for words. One of the reasons the immigration bill failed was because rank and file conservatives in Congress weren't happy with President Bush's guest worker program which many saw as basically granting amnesty. Yet when it comes to putting immigrants into high level positions in the GOP, suddenly there is silence.

Then again, with the fact that so many positions in the Bush administration are going unfilled because no one wants them, perhaps they can utilize a sort of "guest Bushie" program to help fill them. Of course they would probably have a limited pool to choose from.
