Pandering to the (Non-)Voters

This is just ludicrous. Apparently the honorable long-faced senator from Massachusetts feels he has finally found his new political base: the illegal — excuse me, undocumented — immigrant population that has been so visible in the American media over the past two weeks. And he is so giddy about this new discovery that he has begun broadcasting his liberal lies in Spanish to his newfound friends.
"The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bi-partisan immigration bill that: 1) provides a path toward citizenship for undocumented immigrants, 2) re-unites families, and 3) strengthens border security.

[...snip...]

"We stood up to the Republicans who saw immigration reform as a chance to punish immigrants. We eliminated provisions that would criminalize immigrants and anyone who would help them. This was an important step, given the fact that the House Republican approved bill passed in December would allow the prosecution of clergy, hospital workers, charities or anyone else who would help thy neighbor. Cardinal Mahoney from California was right to take a stand against this punitive measure, and we Democrats were able to defeat it.
Ooh, nice little tug on the Catholic strings there, Mr. Kerry!
"Democrats were able to achieve all of this, despite attempts by Senate Republican Majority Leader Frist to cater to the narrowest interests in his party and impose a wrongheaded enforcement only bill."
You can see the full transcript (in English) or hear the original radio spot (in Spanish) at Expose the Left.

I just loved one of the comments at Expose the Left:

Anyone pick up on the hypocrisy here? Bush broke the law, all be it for a noble cause, so censure him. Mexican immigrants broke the law, all be it for a noble cause, so reward them.

Couldn't have said it better myself!
