It's Called a Win-Win

Republicans are stuck between a rock and a hard place on immigration reform, and that can only be good for the Democrats in 2006 and '08. The Times today reports on the difficult position in which the swirling discussion of immigration has put some Republican elected officials in recent months.

If they support proposals from President Bush or John McCain and Edward Kennedy -- offering some version of "amnesty" to illegal immigrants currently living and working in the United States -- they'll be painted as anti-law, anti-American traitors of the Republican Party. If they support a bill that recently passed the House, any inroads the Republicans have made in the country's Latino communities will wash away (see: Pete Wilson and Prop. 187).

Oh, what is a bigoted Republican who values his ties to big business to do?
