National Review: "Nightmare on Amnesty Street"

As the national media continues to hammer away at the Kennedy/McConnell Amnesty Bill, one has to wonder if Mitch McConnell will even stay in the race to get hammered by Larry Forgy. the National Review writes:
This week, conservatives will watch in horror as Reid and Republican Leader Mitch McConnell give a wink and a nod to amendments approved by the drafters of the bipartisan amnesty approach to immigration reform in anticipation of a final deal.

The American people don’t want amnesty for illegal aliens, a fact shown by poll after poll. Perhaps lawmakers’ haste to ram an unpopular bill through explains why poll numbers for Congress are also diving. President Bush hasn’t been faring well either in surveys. In a recent Rasmussen poll, only 15 percent give him good or excellent marks on immigration.
