Just when the Republicans have everything in their hands they manage to do something totally stupid.
Why, oh why, would you stir up the immigration mess when things were going well. This is not a winning issue for Republicans and everyone knows it but them. This is as stupid as the Democrats kowtowing to the fringe of their party. Just when it looked like they would make huge gains in the House and the Senate, along comes the immigration bomb, and they reach down and light the fuse. It's like giving back all the gains made in the past 15 months.
There seemed to be a real opportunity to gain some ground, and roll back the legislative overreach, and spending splurge of the past two years. That will crawl back now, thanks to the Arizona law, and the other southern states jumping on the bandwagon.
