If you need more proof that the Mike Pence "compromise" Plan is a bad idea, here's Exhibit G:

President Bush likes it!

Earlier this week, Congressman Pence met with the Prez and shared his plan for immigration reform—in a press conference later that day, he made this observation:

"The president listened intently," Pence told reporters. "He told me that he was intrigued with my proposal."

No doubt the President is looking to Mike Pence for a pseudo-compromise bill that stands a chance in Hell of making it through the House.

While he managed to strong-arm Senators Specter and Frist into passing that rancid Senate amnesty proposal, he is having no such luck with Hastert, Tancredo & Co. House Leaders are determined to take the debate to the streets for public input before they draft or pass any new bill.

I love them...especially Congressman Tancredo. For that matter, I love Mike Pence—I just hate his bill.

By the way, I didn't skip Exhibit F in my aforementioned list of evidence—that would be my column tonight!
