Hardball

Here’s another reason to vote for Bush: he’s playing

hardball with suspected terrorist supporters, trying to get them booted from

the country on anything that’ll stick. Here in north Texas, the government

is trying to kick out a wealthy Palestinian businessman it accuses of

participating in a sham green-card marriage in the early

1980s. The

businessman went on to marry a second time, get fabulously wealthy with a

carpet business … and become a board member and close associate of the

Holy Land Foundation, whose leadership is under federal indictment for

allegedly using the charity as a front to raise money for Hamas. It’s hard

to imagine John Kerry having the guts to play hardball like this with

alleged terror symps.
