Seven myths of immigration reform and tales of utter success

25May07

Okay, maybe “utter success” is a (big) stretch. But a funny thing happens when members of Congress actually craft a solution to the seemingly impossible: they earn the confidence of thier countrymen and women. (Nancy Pelosi are you listening?) A New York Times/CNN poll today found broad public support for Senate’s immigration bill, sponsored in part by the ever prescient John McCain.

Over at his official website, John McCain skewers seven festering myths about the bill. May they R.I.P.

Finally, in another all too rare act of bipartisanship — for the good of the country instead of the political coffers — Congress passed a spending bill for the war. Did the Democrats gain anything by thier previous poisonous posturing? Not if this Yahoo News headline is a harbinger: “Congress Bows to Bush, Oks Iraq Funds.”
