Has Conradical Burns lost it? Firefighters from out of state did a "a piss poor job", his painter is "a Guatamalan". And now, during a fundraiser with Laura Bush he said the US is up against a "faceless enemy" of terrorists who "drive taxi cabs in the daytime and kill at night." All that money he took in bribes from Abramoff must have addled his tiny brain. "In Washington, Senator Burns is a respected voice on the issues facing rural communities in Montana and across the nation" but not Montana, said Pickles.

He has drawn criticism in recent weeks for calling his house painter a "nice little Guatemalan man" during a June speech. Burns, whose re-election campaign is pressing for tighter immigration controls, also suggested that the man might be an illegal immigrant. The campaign later said the worker is legal.

Burns, 71, also had to apologize after confronting members of a firefighting team at the Billings airport and telling them they had done a "piss-poor job," according to a state report. In July, the Hotshot crew had traveled 2,000 miles from Staunton, Va., to help dig fire lines for about a week around a 143-square-mile wildfire east of Billings.

At the campaign event with Bush, Burns talked about the war on terrorism, saying a "faceless enemy" of terrorists "drive taxi cabs in the daytime and kill at night."
