Updated: Ace has a few words for President Bush.

Ace of Spades is getting pretty upset about this Immigration Bill too:

Via the Corner, Laura Ingraham unloads on President Bush.

"The good news is that President Bush has finally taken the gloves off... the bad news is he's chosen to take them off to beat the hell out of us." (A paraphrase.)

Oh man. She is brutal.

She notes he goes out of his way to not question the patriotism of
Democrats voting to de-fund our troops, but extends no such courtesies to his
own voters.

Hey, President Bush? F#ck off. You are going down in history in a neck-and-neck battle with Jimmy Carter as worst president of the twentieth century.

And you know what? You are, pretty much, a f#cking moron.

Message To The Left: I'm not saying you should impeach him, I'm just
sayin', you know, go with your hearts.

Not The Twentieth Century: D#mn, I'm still writing "the twentieth
century" on all of my checks; takes me at least a couple of decades to get used
to writing the new one.

Mark points out that Bush can't be tied with Carter as worst
president of the twentieth century, as all of his presidency has taken place in
the twenty-first.

So, on a technicality, Bush misses out on that distinction.

I hope this works out:

House conservatives are ready to stop the Senate immigration bill in
its tracks with a potent procedural weapon should the contentious measure win
passage in the upper chamber.

The trump card conservatives may hold is a constitutional rule that
revenue-related bills must originate in the House. The Senate immigration
measure requires that illegal immigrants pay back taxes before becoming
citizens, opening the door to a House protest, dubbed a “blue slip” for the
color of its paper.

House Republicans used the same back-taxes mandate for a blue-slip
threat that derailed last year’s immigration conference. The new Senate bill
still must survive two more weeks of voter scrutiny and contentious amendments,
but several conservatives already are lying in wait for the Senate to “make the
same mistake twice,” as one House GOP aide put it.

The post above is a good one, so hit it and read it all.

Update: Mark Leven has this to add.
