    Question is, will Rubio be able to adequately fool Latinos by pretending to be for immigration reform (so he can get their votes) while placating the racist base by demanding that Jan Brewer and Rick Perry be installed as the legal "deciders"  of whether the borders are safe enough to let reformed  immigration commence.  Most people can see through claims that you support an issue only if and only if  an impossible condition is met before the proposal can be activated.

      to see through such claims, but I'm wondering how many of those are left in the country.  Even many Democrats are beginning to wonder what ramifications there will be to setting 12 million undocumented immigrants on the path to citizenship.

      There is a huge and profitable industry that disagrees with you.

      I think the evidence of the last few decades argues against your premise.

      Sorry - I wish you were right.

      This IS a ship of fools.  What can we do about that?

      Aren't you guys in Michigan worried about the vast flood of Canayjuns crossing your borders, flooding the market with illegal maple syrup and Montreal Canadien jerseys?
