In other words, the Senate will squeeze amnesty through when the public isn't watching

From the NYT this afternoon:

President Bush and Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic majority leader, pledged today to work for passage of the suddenly revived immigration bill, with Mr. Reid saying Senate Democrats would sacrifice their Fourth of July break, if necessary.

And in other news, just yesterday 5-year-old Timmy tried to sneak a white elephant, a skunk, and a pack of laughing hyenas up the stairs past his parents in the living room.

"Sacrificing the Fourth of July break if necessary" - there's an eerie symbolism in that.

Good catch.

Like I've said before, I don't think it will be so bad if they pass this bill and Shrub signs it. I think they underestimate the outrage of the voters, and a lot of them will pay for it with their jobs - even the ones (Landrieu, Pryor, et al) who pretend to vote against it. (After all, in 1994 it wan't just the Democrats who voted for tax increases or who got busted in scandals who lost their jobs - the whole party got blamed).

That's a very good thing because, like I've also said before, even if this bill doesn't pass, there's no way in hell we'll ever get true immigration reform out of this Congress.

Passing this monstrosity of a bill on Independence day would have the advantage of placing nice, neat bookends around our country's history.

From the GOP webpage on "Immigration Reform":

Help educate the public about the President's Immigration Reform agenda. Write Letters to the Editor. Call Talk Radio. Write Your Representatives.

That's odd: I thought that's what we've been doing...

True, but the damn thing's been in a coma since sometime back in the 50s, when the elites started creating postnational organizations and realized they could convince Americans that their democratic rights could be taken away by a few unelected judges, allegedly out of "protecting the rights of the minority." So the public buys into the incredibly absurd notion that a handful of unelected judges can do no wrong.

The judiciary gutted Prop 187 in California, they gutted the Official English Amendment in Utah, and the damn tyrants didn't even let Colorado voters consider the matter, because they said it dealt with "more than one issue."

And the public doesn't even bother to get angry. Aristocrats will find anyway they can to reimpose tyrrany.
