NFL rejects Border Patrol ad

The National Football League refused to run a recruitment ad for the U.S. Border Patrol in last week's Super Bowl program, saying it was "controversial" because it mentioned duties such as fighting terrorism and stopping drugs and illegal aliens at the border.

"The ad that the department submitted was specific to Border Patrol, and it mentioned terrorism. We were not comfortable with that," said Greg Aiello, a spokesman for the NFL.

So let me get this straight -- all parties agree that, if nothing else, the border needs to be secured by providing more Border Patrol Agents. We're just not allowed to recruit any?

I have a simple question here. Why is America the only nation in world history not allowed to have a border?

This is the result when the shrillest elements of any debate get center stage (as in the "Reconquista" crowd). Taking a common sense stand is suddenly somehow "controversial."

Nice backbone, guys. Thanks for chipping in on this whole secure the border, War on Terror thing.

Could we have expected America's big business to lead by example here? To show that regardless of party affiliation, the country's border is far too porous? To do the simple, decent thing of supporting the agency that helps keep them safe to reap their billions?

The answer, of course, is NFL--Not Friggin' Likely.
