In a league of their own

When the right-wing's worst ideas spread to their closest friends. When you are borrowing from the intellectual residue of Steve King it is a problem.
Israel is to build a huge steel fence along the boundary between the Golan Heights and Syria amid fears that the civil war could spill over or create an influx of refugees. The pledge from the prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, came a few days after the defence ministry announced the near-completion of a 150-mile fence along the southern border with Egypt, aimed mainly at keeping out illegal migrants.
Yeah, that'll work. When are they eliminating their socialist health care system?

They’re looking more like Serbia every year.

Yes. Good idea. Civil wars are just like a solid object meeting an immovable barrier.

I assume that our Teapublicans are advising on this.

They have a wall facing Egypt, the Sharon Wall in the West Bank and now one facing Syria. They might as well keep going and wall the entire border and make everyone happy.
