This is from Tom Tancredo's website: Congressman Tom Tancredo :: Press Release :: Tancredo to Send Message to Chertoff


Representative Tom Tancredo (R-CO) will send a head of lettuce and a fruit basket to Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff today. Tancredo made the move after Chertoff told reporters earlier this week that enforcing the law is causing produce shortages.

“The administration has taken hyperbole to a whole new level this time,” said Tancredo, “They are now trying to convince the public that without amnesty, the American people are going to starve?”

“The agriculture industry and the free market has managed to keep producing through floods, droughts, and $3.00 per gallon gas,” said Tancredo, “I doubt very seriously that a nominal increase in labor costs is going to be the end of lettuce as we know it.”

According to National Journal’s Hotline this morning, Chertoff said in a conference call on 6/27 with reporters that, “We’re living in a world in which lettuce and fruit is not being picked because we are enforcing the law.”

A staffer from Congressman Tancredo’s office will deliver a head of lettuce and a small fruit basket from a local grocery store to Secretary Chertoff’s office at 3 PM ET today located at 3801 Nebraska Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20528.

Congressman Tancredo wrote in the card, “Much, much more where this comes from.”

Honestly, does it get any better than this? If anyone has a buck or two to spare you may want to follow Tancredo's lead, the adress is above and send the head a lettuce to ol' Chertoff so he can stock up for the oncoming shortage.

I have been thinking of something like this since I recieved an email asking for a donation to celebrate Bush's 61st Birthday.

I was thinking everyone could send a taco, taco shell, packet of taco sauce or label from some Mexicon product and if possible write Happy Birthday on it.

Are we up for it?

You didn't even have to ask. I think a bottle of salsa would be perfect. Seriously, what was the address?

Is this the address you have, or didn't they send you one in the e-mail?

White House:
1600 Pennsylvania Ave. NW Washington, DC 20500

Republican National Commitee:
310 First Street, SE - Washington, D.C. 20003

Not sure which one would be funnier, having some bonehead at the RNC thinking I sent a boxfull of cash, or Bush's Birthday Birgade having to open a couple of boxes of salsa.
