Last night, for example, it was apparent from the get-go that Rudy Giuliani was having a very bad night. Mitt Romney clearly got the better of him in the opening debate about illegal immigration. Romney's dial numbers hovered in the 60s (on a scale of 100) while Giuliani (40s) seemed defensive, members of the focus group later said...and they thought Romney seemed strong, even when defending his Sanctuary Mansion. (I mean, if you care about illegal immigrants--which I don't understand in the first place, because I don''t--shouldn't you check the people working your lawn and, if you have doubts, hire another company?)
It’s going to be hard for Joe Klein to claim that what he meant was to check their state ID or citizenship status, because he went on to write, “if you have doubts, hire another company?” What would you be “checking”, that might make you suspect your yard work company is using illegal immigrants, but would leave doubts?
