What John McCain pretends not to know

John McCain says that anyone who believes that a fence is the only way to deal with our illegal immigration problem doesn’t know anything about the human heart.

Now, this is precisely one of my biggest complaints about Democrats (even when they call themselves Republicans): they engage in so much logically fallacious reasoning.  In this case it’s the old Straw Man.  No one I know is calling for a fence along the border as the only means of border enforcement.  It is one of several necessary means of border enforcement.

If John McCain thinks that his opponents believe that a fence is the only means of border enforcement, then he doesn’t know his opponent’s position.
