    Some of you might remember my remark the other day that, when the Democrats say or do something stupid, I will call them on it. Well, here's a pretty good one:

    "Rep. Silvestre Reyes (D-Texas) said America's border towns are among the safest in the country, and noted that violent crime in Ohio is far worse than that in the largest cities abutting Mexico. He called on Boehner to fix his home-state problems before criticizing those along the southern border.
    ...
    The comment comes amid an escalation of violent crime in Mexico, fueled largely by the powerful cartels catering to America's substantial appetite for illegal drugs. The drug battles have killed more than 30,000 Mexicans since 2006. Some of the crime has spilled into the U.S., prompting many lawmakers on Capitol Hill to urge the White House to take additional steps to seal the border."
