The Corner

Sound Familiar?

It’s no coincidence that “Amnesty Jack” Kemp is also carrying the Democrats’ water in another area — congressional representation for D.C. At a Senate committee hearing yesterday, he said that the issue offered the Republican Party “a chance to be recorded on the right side of a civil rights issue.” Kemp’s written testimony is just as absurd, and just as reminiscent of the GOP rope-sellers’ rhetoric on amnesty for illegals: “To do anything less then [sic] passing this DC Voting Rights Bill is to confine the Party of Lincoln, Douglass, Eisenhower, Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush to a minority status in perpetuity among people of color. I was not in Selma, AL in 1965 on the Edmund Pettus Bridge, but I am here today with you addressing what I consider a similar injustice with an opportunity to improve our great democratic experiment that is the United States of America.”

And why am I not surprised that “Amnesty Mike” Pence is also a supporter?
