so let me get this straight
Edited on Mon Oct-30-06 01:35 PM by LSK
The RNCC has been running commercials against Tammy Duckworth regarding Illegal Immigration.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xtwu04PyFjs

Duckworth aligns herself with McCain when it comes to immigration:

The immigration reform proposal that I support does not provide amnesty. Its lead sponsor, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has been adamant on that point. Instead, it requires fines, criminal background checks, and that all back taxes must be paid. Immigrants would be compelled to learn English and take courses in American culture and civics. If -- and only if -- an immigrant meets all of those requirements while continuing to be gainfully employed, he or she would be allowed to pursue legal status. Even then, these applicants would have to go to the back of the immigration line.

So.... John McCain comes into town to campaign for Duckworth's opponent Roskam???

What am I missing here? I guess just another day in Republican Hypocrisyville.

:wtf:

1. Is that a serious question?
Here's what you're missing: Duckworth and McCain are in different political parties.
