2. Wil they re-hire that illegal Aussie immigrant (probably Murdoch stooge) to replace him?

I mean they do support illegal employers don't they? Why not set that example themselves?

7. Entirely irrelevant
The top 1% parasites have their Citizens United PACs. They don't need the Republican Party anymore.
