Just Negotiating the Price

One illegal alien demanding amnesty at yesterday’s march in L.A. complained of the size of the payment that would be required under the new White House amnesty plan: “Charging that much, Bush is going to be even more expensive than the coyotes.”

If I might adapt the old joke:

An illegal alien approaches a Republican politician at a bar and asks, “Would you give me amnesty for a million dollars?”

“Why, sure,” replies the politician.

“How about $1,000?” asks the illegal.

The politician retorts in horror, “What kind of person do you think I am?”

“We’ve already established that, sir,” says the illegal alien. “Now we’re just negotiating the price.”
