  •  This will turn ugly (10+ / 0-)

    No way the reflexively racist wingnuts will go quietly into the night. They will fume, scream betrayal, stomp their feet--and open their mouths. We must brace ourselves for more offensively crazy rhetoric that will further alienate everyone outside the teabagging bubble.

      From ultra right-wing Hot Air site:

      Three House Republicans signal new push on immigration reform is coming

      Three that I’ve noticed, that is. There may be more beneath my radar, and if there are, please e-mail me the links so that I can add them as updates. And no, I’m not including Adam Kinzinger or Aaron Schock in this. If you count them too, then we’ve got five different GOPers suddenly talking this up.

      As Trotsky famously said, you may not be interested in amnesty but amnesty is interested in you. First up: Cathy McMorris-Rodgers, the highest-ranking Republican woman in the House, who delivered the official party rebuttal to the State of the Union back in January. She’s also the only one of the three to float a concrete timeline.

      McMorris Rodgers said she still thinks a deal could be struck before the election. “I believe there is a path that we get a bill on the floor by August,” she said.

      Again, it’ll come down to whether Boehner is willing to violate the Hastert Rule and pass a comprehensive bill (or series of bills that amount to a comprehensive bill) with a majority of Democrats and minority of Republicans. After last week’s outburst, would you put it past him?

      The comments are delightful!!! If you are brave enough to take a look...

      immigrants. After the Boston Bombing, the baggers were talking about deporting all Russian immigrants along with all other immigrants.
