Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

Chait on Immigration

Interesting point.  The Gang of Eight plan (Rubio's plan) is an effort by the GOP elite to wrest control of the party back from it's rabid, xenophobic, racist base and back into the service of plutocracy that the elites prefer.

Will this break the Tea Party?  Or is this the end of Marco Rubio, the GOP's Great Brown Hope?
