Dukakabee U.

Fred Thompson hits Mike Dukakabee on tuition for illegal aliens.

In one of the most negative direct mail pieces sent out so far in the Republican campaign, voters get a brochure with the headline “Huckabee University” that notes “Illegals Welcome” and “US citizens need not apply.”The mailing is in reference to rival Mike Huckabee’s support of in-state tuition and scholarship offerings for the children of undocumented immigrants during his tenure as Arkansas governor. It comes courtesy of [Fred] Thompson, the former Tennessee senator.

. . .

Thompson’s mailer was sent out in the days leading up to today’s debate among the Republican presidential contenders hosted by the Des Moines Register.

Thompson’s mailer encourages people to open the doors to the fictional “Huckabee University,” where they learn that on the subject of immigration, “Mike Huckabee talks like a Republican, but governs like a Democrat.”

Thompson, meanwhile, pledges “no amnesty,” increased border security and to “maximize efforts to prosecute and convict criminal alien gangs.”

Huckabee has defended his support of higher-education benefits to the children of undocumented immigrants under the belief that a child should not be punished for the sins of the parent. Huckabee also has said he believes there’s an element of racism involved in the immigration debate.

Rise, all loyal Dukakabees
And hurl your lunch on our foe.
We will squish, day or night,
Rain or snow.
Soft, weak and goo,
Don a new pair of shoes.
As we sing, get set to spring.
Come on Dukakabees, it’s up to you!
So Rise and Shout, the Dukakabees are out
We’re on a trail to lame and sorry.
Rise and shout, our hollow cheers will ring out
As we unfold our sad, sad story.
On we go to hurl upon our foe
For Alma Mater’s sons and daughters.
As we join in song,
In praise of you, our faith is strong.
We’ll raise our colors high in the blue
And cheer our Dukakabees of Dukakabee U.
Rah! Rah! Rah-rah-rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah-rah-rah!
Rah! Rah! Rah-rah-rah!
