If the Republicans lose the House but not the Senate, you can expect to read on November 9 an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal by Tamar Jacoby, Michael Barone, or both crowing that the loss of the House is a crushing reproach to "nativism"
We know that the news side of the Wall Street Journal has been talking about the "crucial role
" of Hispanics in the election, a myth Steve debunks at length in last night`s column.
But if you don`t have a subscription to the WSJ
, you may not have read their latest unsigned editorial blaming people with normal views
on immigration for the GOP`s loss. [Immigration Losers,
November 10, 2006 (link may require subscription)]
People who have read it include immigration enthusiast Daniel Griswold,
who approves of it
, Michelle Malkin who doesn`t
, (she has it linked to the her comments on the murder of Adrienne Shelly
, which will no doubt annoy James Taranto
)and Phil Boas in the Arizona Republic`s blog,
Remember, most of the American electorate
wants immigration enforcement. That includes a great many Democrats
, and almost all Republicans who aren`t executives at Fortune 500 companies, or wealthy fruit farmers.
Remember, that actual base of the GOP is voters—not, as the WSJ seems to think
, "nearly every business executive"
who comes through their offices.
They can send money, but they have very few actual votes.
