The Tip-off Was the Big Hat with Fruit All Over It 

The four candidates for Tennessee's open Senate seat have spent the past six months trying to out-wingnut each other as the most "conservative" candidate in the race. But Ed Bryant may have finally pulled the wingnuttiest stunt of all.

A press release sent out today details Bryant's courageous trip to the Mexican border in Arizona, where he met with the Minutemen "civil defense unit," and "helped construct a fence."

Our favorite line in the flackery was this one, however: "Carmen Miranda, the Minutemen Civil Defense Corps Vice President accompanied Bryant around the ranch, introduced him to the Minutemen working on the fence ..." What, Speedy Gonzalez and Jose Jimenez weren't available?
