Virginia Congressman Pwns The UN

    Congressman Frank Wolf is a moderate GOPer in Northern Virginia cruising to an eighth term in office this November. He's one of those yesterday who mentioned China has been hacking into congress' computers to mine data. In his district is Prince William County, Virginia, which is the scene of one of the sharpest disputes over illegal immigration in the country. Apparently the UN wants to take a peek to see what's going on there, on top of all the other area rights groups that are doing so. Here's his letter, which seemed pretty spot on to me.

    There is no more corrupt and irrelevant organization on the planet than the United Nations.

    I like McCain's plans for a League of Democracies, ostensibly to replace this failed organization.

    I would prefer a Justice League.

    McCain seems to forget that the League of Nations that preceded the U.N. was even more of an epic failure.

    Frankly, the idea of a multi-national organization trying to wield authority over such a disparate collection of nations is foolhardy. Both the League of Nations and the United Nations have proven that.

    Yeah I thought that was a nice touch too.

    But if the UN is disbanded what will happen to all of those black helicopters?

    Not to mention the blue helmets.

    Seriously, good for Wolf. It would be interesting to read if the UN guy writes a response.

    Fixed.

    (Aviation fuel is more like diesel than gasoline or ethanol.)

    He makes some excellent points in his letter.
