(NB: I blogged this on the conservative political blog Judge and Jewry: Above the Din, which, when it’s not judicial confirmation season, gets a little less traffic than LOC. But it’s so terribly clever I had to repeat it here.)
Mickey Kaus writes, criticizing David Brooks for an expression of realpolitik on the immigration issue, “Brooks offers a noble reason of principle for sneering at the bill: He says it ‘will lose [Republicans] Florida and the Southwest for a generation.’ Under this moral standard Democrats would have opposed civil rights in the 1960s.”
Hey, wait a minute. Democrats did oppose civil rights in the 1960’s! It’s good to be in the bubble, I guess.
