Sunday Talk: Home of the brave

Daily Kos ~ Silly Rabbit

On Monday, Senator Marco Rubio—whose parents famously fled Castro’s Cuba before that was even a thing to do—ganged up with seven other senators (including John “TehSurge” McCain and Lindsey “Benghazi” Graham) to unveil a bipartisan framework for comprehensive immigration reform.

No doubt this was a calculated move by Rubio; he doesn’t need any GOP consultants telling him that “send them all back” is no longer a viable electoral strategy—but it was heroic nonetheless.

He now finds himself on the opposing side of Rush Limbaugh, Fox News, and the National Review; they recognize that offering millions of freeloaders a path to citizenship would be good for the Democrats, and as such, bad for the country.

On the other hand, an influx of foreign invaders would necessitate giving little womenzunfettered access to the biggestscariest-looking guns imaginable—which is what America is all about.

Well, that and Israelapparently.
