Immigration Reform Wins

In the last moments Hillary began to crash–and all because Dodd–the dear darling Dodo–challenged her on a plainly dishonest answer about illegal immigration. Then the slippery Edwards, sensing blood in the water, swam snakewise to sink his fangs in her calf, and even the timid loquacious Obama felt bold enough to suggest that she may perhaps not have been wholly consistent. What this little thing demonstrates is that immigration is the issue that the Democrats know is their Achilles Heel. Their sole defense is that Bush “failed” to solve it–what they mean is that, even though he tried to carry their water, he couldn’t persuade the majority of Republicans to do so.

Is there any reason why the GOP as a whole should not now come down firmly on the side of a genuine immigration reform that would reduce immigration, legal and illegal, emphasize skills and English language proficiency more than at present, and force employers to obey the law.

Sure the president and Chertoff will squeal–but they’re yesterday’s men and have been for some years.
