Roll Call: McConnell Carrying Teddy Kennedy's Water On Amnesty Bill

The national media is starting to pick up on the discontent with the Louisville liberal Mitch McConnell that is being voiced on many of the leading conservative blogs, as seen in Roll Call today:

Sen. Larry Craig (R-Idaho) said he already has told Senate GOP leaders he will not support the immigration filibuster any longer. "They've had ample opportunity," Craig said of the Republican dissenters who successfully rallied a majority of their Conference to block the bill last week. Craig added that he supports McConnell's efforts to goad the conservatives into capitulating, saying that over the years "when I was in a minority position I was given fair fun, but I was never given carte blanche to kill something."
