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.
