Off With Their Headers!

Alice in Wonderland may be out of the theatres just now, but the live theatre road show just got under way in Arizona. It's an upside down world where reform means amnesty and where law breakers are heroes while decent people trying to establish some semblance of order in their own community get vilified and slandered by all and sundry. Its surreal charm will carry you away- unless you're Mexican, in which case nothing will ever carry you beyond the nearest illegals sanctuary. And what a cast!
Governor Brewer as Alice. Watch her political standing fantastically wax and wane as she ponders the eternal Underland dilemma: drink the mainstream Kool-Aid and find your integrity shrinking or else eat the cake of conservatism and bang your head against the Republican Party ceiling. Either way you'll cry a sea of tears.
The Senate and Congress as Tweedledee and Tweedledum. What a laugh as our two favorite do-nothings... do nothing.
John McCain as the Mad Hatter. Enjoy the antics as he contradicts himself with every word he speaks.
Sarah Palin as the White Rabbit. She's late for the mad, bad Tea Party, and she's the guest of honor!
The (Jewish) media as the Queen of (Bleeding) Hearts with her well-known aversion to all things white. The indignation knows no bounds as journos scream for the heads of poor Alice and all true Arizonans. You'll laugh till you cry as you see them play croquet with poor immigrants disguised as hedgehogs. The New York Times makes a cameo appearance as the fearsome Jabberwock that,
With eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came: "Meanspirited!"
And of course, the star attraction, Obama himself as the ever-equivocating Cheshire Cat. You'll marvel to see his incredible grin linger in the teleprompter long after he himself has run from the rose garden.
Mexico will be featured as the Underland into which our brave heroine must venture in search of some way out from the underground economy and the underworld criminality and the underfunded enforcement as it all starts to border on ununderstandable insanity. Curiouser and curiouser.
