I've been watching the Senate's kabuki theater on immigration reform. Interesting, in a weird sort of way, but totally irrelevant to anything going on in the US today. All the reform proponents on the one side, all the opposition on the other side. Totally irrelevant. Has no basis in relevancy.
It'll never make it through the House. It won't. It's a non-starter. So, we've got this Gang of 8, making news headlines, and you've got Harry Reid, pushing for a floor vote, and when it gets to the House, kablooey. Sunk like the Titanic. Nothing happening at all.
I wonder why half of our legislative branch is heartily pursuing something that is doomed? Have they nothing better to do?
