Take 2 on "Illegal Alien" Halloween Costume

(This was posted to address respondents to my first comment on the USA Today article "'Illegal Alien' mask flap spooks retailers" http://content.usatoday.com/community/comments.aspx?id=36565726.story&p=7 )

I realized when I posted my first comment that it would have too many words and be over the heads of those folks that use any excuse to demonize people and hurl insults at Democrats, "libs," President Obama, or whomever else they fear are circling their homes in black helicopters. The scared and pathetic always need an enemy to direct their venomous delusions toward.

My take on the "Illegal Alien" Halloween Costume Controversy

(Note: This was originally posted as an admittedly long-winded comment on USA Today website article "'Illegal Alien' mask flap spooks retailers"  http://www.usatoday.com/news/nation/2009-10-19-halloween-mask_N.htm )

When I first saw the "Illegal Alien" costume, I took it ironically, as it apparently was intended. It was meant to play on the idiocy of the xenophobes, whose dumbassery hasn't failed to disappoint when weighing-in on this issue.
