Rove's a Hypocrite on Immigratrion

We happen to agree with him....but that's not the point. The point is that what he was overheard saying is yet another slap in the face to those who believe in the GOP and everything it stands for:
Not Our Kind of People [Mark Krikorian]

NRO According to a congressman's wife who attended a Republican women's luncheon yesterday, Karl Rove explained the rationale behind the president's amnesty/open-borders proposal this way: "I don't want my 17-year-old son to have to pick tomatoes or make beds in Las Vegas."

There should be no need to explain why this is an obscene statement coming from a leader in the party that promotes the virtues of hard work, thrift, and sobriety, a party whose demi-god actually split fence rails as a young man, a party where "respectable Republican cloth coat" once actually meant something. But it does seem to be necessary to explain.
