Grim's Hall picks up on a witty piece of writing in the Comments section at Red State:
My question is why did the GOP pick up the amnesty flag at all? This was a priority?Found here: http://grimbeorn.blogspot.com/2013/01/strategery.html
The GOP "reasoning" seems to be this . . .
Budget, nah, can't be bothered.
Exploding Deficit, just doesn't seem important.
Runaway Government both in size and power grab, not really worth addressing.
Amnesty, that’s the ticket, it wrecks the budget, explodes the deficit, increases the runaway government and best of all it peeves our base! One other benefit, it increases the Democrats base. Wow, why didn't we think of this before!
