I wonder why

Posted: February 15, 2008 in state

I saw this in the Friday Houston Chronicle.

A parade of Texans told a congressional hearing Thursday that the Department of Homeland Security had turned a deaf ear on their concerns about a border fence while ignoring their suggestions for improving security.
“Country boys can can come up with a good idea now and then,” said Chad Foster, the mayor of Eagle Pass, before a House Appropriations subcommitee. “We have yet been able to get DHS to sit down with us and and look at these country ideas.”

Maybe they would Mr. Foster if you dropped the “country boy” shtick and not appear in photos wearing that ridiculous cowboy hat.
