Dep't of Just Wow

The GOP demonstrates why immigration is not necessarily a winning issue for it:
“I think we should catch ’em, we should document ’em, make sure we know where they are and where they are going,” said Pat Bertroche, an Urbandale physician. “I actually support microchipping them. I can microchip my dog so I can find it. Why can’t I microchip an illegal?"
Uh, because he doesn't belong to you, Dr. Bertroche?

Bertroche is "one of seven Republicans running in the 3rd District Congressional primary" in Iowa.

  1. The really funny part is we've been reading in the last few weeks that a number of Republicans in various states are deeply, deeply concerned about the potential for the government to start forcibly microchipping people.

    I guess it's only bad if you do it to white people.

    P.S. I tried very hard to get through this without commenting on the blistering stupidity, since the doctor obviously doesn't know how animal chipping works. We could point it out more loudly, but an active demonstration of his ignorance would probably bump him up a few points in the primary.
