Fresno Bee: Immigration debate includes political theater

The liberal national media is really picking up on the damage that the Kennedy/McConnell amnesty bill is doing to Kentucky conservatives and blue collar workers across the country. The Fresno Bee writes:
Sen. Edward Kennedy needs Marna Vasquez, and vice versa.

Vasquez is a packinghouse worker from Porterville. Kennedy is a rich and famous Democratic senator from Massachusetts.

Its not just rural areas that will be hit, although we may suffer the most if we don't oust the Louisville liberal and replace him with a true conservative like Larry Forgy:

The immigration fight spans many fronts.

Some are formal set pieces, such as the Senate debate itself. Some have the potential to be far more influential, such as private deal-making among senators.

Some fill the airwaves, such as the ads running in Kentucky urging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell to oppose the bill.
