My thanks for this story go here. Evidently, after seeing — how shall I say this? OK, just for fun, I’ll use the language of the land, the odd PC dialect that has taken ahold of the American tongue — undocumented immigrants swimming freely into the country from Mexico, Raj Peter Bhakta, who is running for the 13th District U.S. House of Representatives seat in Eastern Pennsylvania, decided to experiement a little.

According to the Brownsville Herald, “Bhakta decided to see if he could get an elephant accompanied by a six-piece mariachi band across the river.”

“To my surprise, the band played on, the elephants splashed away, and nobody showed up,” Bhakta said, according to the story. “I’m astounded.”

I like the way this man thinks. What a creative, humourous, non-insulting means of making a serious point on an important issue!
