Punk the National Review

Ted Barlow is running a contest.

I received this note the other day from someone. Normally I wouldn't run such a thing, but I figure I'll adopt the journalistic standards of the National Review.

Dear Atrios,

I want to tell you a story from my youth. I was 16 years old, an illegal immigrant, and working as a maid for the Bush family in Texas. Several times George Bush told me that I had to have sex with him or I'd be arrested and deported. I became pregnant, and Bush drove me across the border and forced me to have an abortion. He said if I ever told anybody he'd kill me.



I cannot confirm this story, but it sure is interesting.
