Sean Hannity just can't let go of his fear long enough to think, and his conversation Tuesday with Rep. Gutierrez is no exception.

You have to love a conversation that begins with Hannity declaring that he has been in press conferences and border tours with Governor Rick Perry where they're catching Syrians, Muslims, and other assorted baddies at the border and then have him ask Gutierrez why he doesn't want to secure the border.

Doesn't the fact that they're catching them mean anything? It seems to me that if they're catching them, the border is secure, no?

As Gutierrez says, the terrorists don't sneak over the border. They fly in first class seats with visas, land at airports, and take limos to their destinations.

That didn't stop Sean from making his own form of terrorist threat. Facing off with Gutierrez, he declared that if there is a terrorist attack in this country, he will "blame members of Congress for not doing their job." Which of course really means he will blame Democrats, but he ought to blame his own people, who are blocking the Senate immigration reform bill which would deal not only with border security but also a more orderly pathway on immigration itself.

Meanwhile, maybe someone could clue Sean in to the fact that if they're "caught at the border" that means border security is working. Right now!
