Close counts in horseshoes, not politics. But it doesn’t bode well for immigrants.
That’s my reading of the special election for Duke Cunningham’s congressional seat, left vacant when the Dukester admitted to some impressive bribe-taking.
When the Republican candidate got in real trouble, he waved the bloody flag: keep out the immigrants.
He even attacked President Bush as soft on illegals.
It barely worked, but it worked.
With desperate Republicans all over the map, look for more of them to flog the illegal-immigrant issue.
How long will it take Robin Hayes and Charlie Taylor here in North Carolina?
