Slashdot is once again discussing H-1b visas.

"`The IT work force is not skilled enough and almost never can be skilled enough,` said Robert Cresanti, Under Secretary of Commerce for Technology. So what does the Poli Sci grad and ex-General Counsel for the ITAA think is the answer? Open the gates to more foreign workers, urged Cresanti, including H-1B holders."

So Cresanti is the high tech equivalent of "Brownie" of Katrina fame. A lawyer that needed a little better job, took one for which he wasn`t vaguely qualified and in doing do created a mess for a lot of Americans.

For a long time, any meaningful discussion of H-1b visas was taboo on Slashdot. My own article The Jobs Crunch appeared there when such articles were much more rare. Projection: Republicans will lose the college educated white male vote again in the next presidential election if they keep this kind of stuff up.
