Captain Amnesty

Mark Krikorian argues:

As I point out in my piece on the homepage today, the open-borders cackling that Amnesty John’s victory shows immigration to be politically irrelevant is wishful thinking.

Some might say that the prospects for an anti-immigrant movement that can’t secure control over either political party aren’t good, and that with the hispanic share of the electorate only growing the idea of the coming Age of Krikorian is wishful thinking. But more to the point, this “Amnesty John” business is no good. Let’s stick with “Juan McCain” or, my personal favorite, “Captain Amnesty”, which I’m especially drawn to because it reminds me of Anti-Flag’s “Captain Anarchy”. I keep trying to come up with McCain alternate lyrics for the song, but I don’t have the chops for it.
