the woman got a $5 million advance, so she’s obviously a way more successful writer than I could ever be.

i detect a note of sarcasm... puhlease - a writer? More like one of the world's highest paid prostitutes.

Don't worry. After a dozen or so years of evil one day Palin will wake up and she'll look like Barbara Bush (kind of like Emperor Palpatine in Star Wars - pure hatred is deleterious.) In the meantime, i imagine Palin is coaching her protege, Carrie Prejean, on how to be the reigning High Priestess of Neo-Conservatism for when her looks go.

Laurie, It's sad that immigration-reductionists such as myself so often find our viewpoint-- founded in national and global environmentalism as well as wage protection for American citizens and legal residents-- conflated with the nativist (racist) motives of people like Sarah Palin and her ilk. I'm not saying that you're doing that, just that I'd appreciate it if you would appreciate the nuance.
Let's remember that George Bush, Dick Cheney and John McCain all supported an open-borders policy, as a simple way of reducing wages and creating new consumers. Bush II refused to prosecute illegal *employers*. His father prosecuted 1100 cases a year. During the younger's reign the level fell to 11.
It's a race to the bottom in terms of wages and the environment. What could be worse than making more Americans?
