Stupid Immigration Politics

Two really stupid voices have come out in the Immigration debate. First the Mayor of NYC over on UPI finds a great way to convince the audience they should support the illegals.

"You and I are beneficiaries of these jobs," Bloomberg told his WABC-AM radio co-host, John Gambling. "You and I both play golf; who takes care of the greens and the fairways in your golf course?"

However, Robert Heaney, general manager of Deepdale Golf Club -- a Long Island course where Bloomberg often plays -- told The New York Daily News that no illegal immigrants work at the club.

So #1) Bloomberg paints a vision of rich elites having their life of luxury supported by the sweat of illegal immigrants. Heck this probably ups support for the house bill by 1% and
#2) He puts the guy who runs his golf club on the spot.... don't be surprised Mr. Mayor if you get bad golf carts from now on.

Our next stupid immigration politics goes out to our good friend Loud Howard the Dean

"This is a nonsensical proposal put out by far right-wingers in the Republican Party who have been endorsed for re-election by the president of the United States," Dean said. "The president has a moral obligation to rein in the right-wing extremists in his party and stop this divisive rhetoric about immigrants."

So we can see Howard Dean's 06 strategy is still "Bush is really really evil (really)"

But we also see a problem here to. Is Loud Howard saying he takes credit and endorses the politics of every democrat who makes it to a general election ballot? that is simply non-sensical and even he should know it.
