This is Bullshit
The headline and the text of this article are not horribly out of line.

But the front page of links to it by saying "Religious right influencing Republican battle plan," which leads me to ask the question: do you think we'd ever see an article on that said "Feminist left influencing Democrat battle plan"?

I doubt it.

Would it be equally accurate?

I can't help but hear his voice when I read this, but...
...the Governator is absolutely right on this one:

Already we hear so much talk about so many false choices. We are told that in a free society it's not possible to have border security. We are advised that in order to secure the borders, we must deport 12 million people. Never mind that we don't know who they are or where they are, and that it could cost up to $230 billion to do it.

I was camped out eating my lunch in San Diego yesterday, watching scores of (mostly Mexican, and I'm guessing mostly illegal) immigrants stream into Balboa Park, where they were gathering for a rally before marching downtown.

And I was struck with a brilliant way to prevent any more rallys: spread rumors among the immigrant crowds that INS officers are going to be circulating and demanding to see papers.

Seriously, though, sometime in the next couple of days I hope to have some more complete thoughts written and posted.
