Not replacing short wall with similar wall

I can’t tell if this is hilarious or terrifying.

Talking Points Memo cautiously prods the suspicious object:

The Department of Homeland Security sounded a bit like Cookie Monster or The Incredible Hulk in a press release Wednesday detailing how the agency has spent the roughly $1.67 billion allocated to it for fence and wall construction and renovation over the past 19 months.

“DHS is committed to building wall and building wall quickly,” the release read. “We are not replacing short, outdated and ineffective wall with similar wall.  Instead, under this President we are building a wall that is 30-feet high.”

To me it sounds like Natasha and Boris in Rocky and Bullwinkle but that’s probably because I’m not familiar with Cookie Monster or The Incredible Hulk.

Anyway, it really is a press release from the real DHS.
