Ugh: John McCain invokes Ted Kennedy to sell immigration reform

Who told Sen. McCain conservatives would be more receptive to amnesty if he gave Ted Kennedy a shout-out?

Note to Sen. McCain: When you’re attempting to sell a faulty immigration reform plan to skeptical conservatives, don’t invoke the name of a corrupt, killer Democratic politician.

Do we detect notes of sarcasm?

Yep. There we have it.

Waitress sandwich, crap sandwich … what difference does it make?

    And the amnesty of the 80’s worked sooo well. Senator McCain, please, shoo…. go play golf or write a book.

    Kennedy treated McCain just like all the other women he used in his life.

    John McCain, a guy who tried to play nice with the other side and got his ass kicked. Much like Ford, Dole and Romney.

    IN memory of Teddy, McCain should drop the bill in a creek and leave it there for a few hours while sipping cognac at home.

    Can we get McCain impeached?

    Teddy Kennedy had an Immigration plan back in 1965. That one worked out real well, as did his creation of Health Maintenance Organizations.

    “This amnesty will give citizenship to only 1.1 to 1.3 million illegal aliens. We will secure the borders henceforth. We will never again bring forward another amnesty bill like this.”

    Sen. Ted Kennedy – 1986
    The American people are still waiting for our borders to be secured.

    I’m thinking that the few Conservatives we have in Congress need to use Kennedy’s name a bit more. For instance:

    “The Federal Carry Conceal Law/National Castle Doctrine. Because Teddy would have wanted it that way.”

    “The Ted Kennedy Memorial 10% Flat Tax.”
