Another "slam-dunk" exploding in their faces...

The GOP is caught in a cleft stick of their own making: ever since 1996 they've pandered to the worst, most hate-filled elements of their far-right constituency ("God hates fags", "Let's assassinate abortion doctors", "Terry Schiavo's life is Congress's business", "Saddam flew the 9/11 jets", "Saddam has WMD's", "They hate our freedom", "Whaddya you mean, I can't cite Jesus in the courtroom?" etc ad nauseum) in order to get 'em out to vote. But this time, Turd-blossom Karl Rove picked the wrong fuckin' wedge issue: targeting illegal immigrants.

You can't pander to conservative, anti-abortion/anti-gay marriage Latino Catholics on one hand and then damn them as "illegal immigrants" to your redneck in-bred deep-South fundamentalist bible-thumping base, and not have the Latinos catch on.

THREE-QUARTERS of American citizens favor legalizing illegals' status, because THREE QUARTERS of Americans are decent people who still believe in Emma Lazarus's phrase "Give me your tired, your poor, your huddled masses yearning to breathe free."

Those contemptible scumbags have once again stepped in the shit, and the American public is repudiating their hate-mongering. Serves 'em right.
