Just a quick comment on something I heard on NPR this morning. Republican Senator David Bitter, weighing in on the immigrant worker issue, took a stand against offering illegals amnesty, stating that the U.S. operated under the “rule of law”, and that such an action would decrease “respect for the law”.

And I just about started laughing out loud. The Rule of Law? Hmmm…let’s see:

-guns for hostages
-funding the Contras
-disclosing the identity of Valerie Plame
-illegal surveillance of U.S. citizens
-Tom Delay’s roughshod handling of Texas democrats
-Jack Abramoff’s slimy association with Republican lawmakers

Rule of Law? Is this guy in the wrong party, or what?

Oh wait, I keep forgetting. It’s not illegal if it’s done by rich white guys.
