Captain Amnesty

CREDIT:

Immigration hater Mark Krikorian passes on rumors that John McCain may be working the phones to try to block some anti-immigration legislation in the House: “An unnamed McCain staff member denies it, but given Amnesty John’s track record, that denial is not persuasive.”

“Amnesty John” is all wrong. He’s either “Juan McCain” or else he’s “Captain Amnesty” — let’s get this stuff straight, “Amnesty John” isn’t any kind of joke at all. Recall the lyrics. Restrictionists, I only kid because I love . . . everyone knows dudes with Spanish last names can never assimilate and must be stopped at all costs.
