John McCain Takes Tour of Border, Watches Woman Climb Right Over "Danged" Fence

How could you forget Senator John McCain's "complete the danged fence" ad?

"It'll work this time," assures underwear model/Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu.

Well, today, while McCain took a tour of the border, he watched a woman climb over an 18-foot border fence in Nogales.

This gem of irony was among the updates of McCain's trip, posted on Twitter by his staff.

The first tweet puts McCain in Tucson with Senators Jeff Flake, Chuck Schumer, and Michael Bennet "headed south to Nogales shortly."

Next, a photo, with the text: "Getting ready for aerial tour with CBP."


Right over the danged fence. There's a follow-up "tweet," too.:
