    play the game and pretend to be working for a solution, but in the end their hatred of "scary brown people" will always rule.  I doubt anything will ever be brought up in the House (unless Boehner knows he has enough votes to defeat it or has some major poison pills - like person-hood amendments or 50-year waiting period in the country of origin before granting a path to citizenship).

    Frankly I am also pretty sure that it will be filibustered in the Senate (I know, I know, they have a deal and Turtle McConnell swore he will not pull the football at the last minute anymore, but he will).

    The supposed lessons they learned from losing last November are already forgotten. Republicans are already gearing up for the 2016 primaries and we will long for the "moderate" primaries of 2012.

    Then they came for me - and by that time there was nobody left to speak up.

      in recent polling for his re-election, McConnell can be counted on to go even further to the right. he is seen by far right as to willing to go along as hard as that is to believe.

      mittens=edsel. no matter how much money is spent to promote it, if the product sucks, no one will buy it.
