Their entire business model for controlling the Republican Party and handpicking Big Government establishment Republicans for key nominations is now imperiled.

Amnesty will gut them conservatives for good and all.
To push the metaphor farther (maybe off the cliff) the Republican Party arguably may have a soul but it does NOT have a spirit.
