Gary Shandling on the Immigration Bill: Remember the Alamo!

Gary Shandling appeared on the Tonight Show last night, and host Jay Leno asked him his opinion of the Immigration Bill. I do not have a tape or transcript, but here is a rough paraphrase of Shandling's hilarious impromptu take on the border wall proposal:

"With all this advanced technology, it looks like we are going back to the Middle Ages or something and building a 30-foot wall. I mean, didn't we try that at the Alamo? Remember the movie, all those Mexicans climbing over the wall on those ladders? And when that happened, was the souvenier shop already there? I mean, could a Mexican soldier stop and buy a t-shirt that read "I illegally immigrated into the Alamo, and all I got was this crummy t-shirt?"

Yes, it's irreverent, and yes, it's a serious issue, but I'm sorry, we can all use a laugh break. Thank you, Gary Shandling.
