The news that the Bush Administration is launching a massive campaign, in conjunction with Democratic politicos and funded by big corporations like Microsoft and Wal-Mart, to demonize the sizable majority of the Republican Party that objects to illegal immigration suggests that the pressures of the Washington scandals have gotten to Karl Rove and George W. Bush.
It's extraordinarily difficult to come up with a rational reason why the Bush Administration is planning to go to war against conservative talk radio:
Tancredo succeeded in dominating the debate, Holt and Armey said, because of an echo chamber of conservative talk radio and other advocates for limiting the influx of Mexicans across the border.
Ironically, one of the designated leaders of Bush's campaign to "marginalize" GOP conservatives who oppose illegal immigration is former House Majority Leader Dick Armey, who in 2002 on "Hardball" called for the ethnic cleansing of all Palestinians from the West Bank. It's good to see Mr. Armey has his priorities straight.
