The immigration debate got nasty very quickly

This is John McCain making fun of Mitt Romney on immigration:

"In the case of Gov. Romney, you know, maybe I should wait a couple of weeks and see if it changes, because it's changed in less than a year from his position before," McCain said. "And maybe his solution will be to get out his small-varmint gun and drive those Guatemalans off his lawn. I don't know."

Meanwhile, the bill is being torpedoed from all directions. Senator David Vitter (R-LA) called it "pure unadulterated amnesty." Aside from whether it should be labeled amnesty or not, his comment did make me wonder what "adulterated amnesty" would mean. And, of course, there are lots and lots of references to "Americans" and what they want, each Senator claiming to have divined their collective desires. Senator Jeff Bingaman (D-NM) argued, and I am not making this up, that the bill would make us just like Kuwait.
