Maybe that is the idea. This bill makes one wonder if it was drawn up by the insane or by traitors.
They're not insane.
From the standpoint of the Republican Party this bill is so disastrous in so many different ways I don't even know where to begin. And all of this is being done with the benefit of hindsight with regards to the flaws and failures of the disastrous '86 Amnesty.
Once this bill is signed it will irrevocably tip the balance of electoral power towards the Democrats. There will be no going back. The GOP will join Gray Davis in political oblivion.
F**k it. As someone said on another thread,
"... at least we won't have gay marriage in Ohio.".
