The Corner

The one and only.

After The Parade . . .


As Derbyshire wrote on
Tuesday, after the parade comes the man with the shovel to clean up after
the horses. Well, today’s papers are full
of post-parade offal, in the form of the administration’s new pledge to push
for a guestworker/amnesty program. The president has met with John McCain
about jump-starting the amnesty process in Congress and sent Colin Powell to
buck Mexico with amnesty talk. What is the White House thinking? It
is the height of irresponsibility to jeopardize the unique opportunity to
reform the tax system and/or Social Security by wasting valuable political
capital on this fool’s errand.
