Quote of the Day

"After years of being a lonely voice of Republican sanity on immigration, [Sen. Lindsey] Graham has decided to embrace the supreme symbol of nativism -- changing the Fourteenth Amendment to restrict American citizenship. He has either taken leave of his senses or of his principles. Neither is unknown in Washington. Politicians sometimes come here to drop their deepest convictions. It’s called self-serving cynicism.
...Graham and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) were once examples of conscience on the issue of immigration. McCain, in a tough Senate primary, has backed off his convictions. Graham has now abandoned them." 
~ Michael Gerson
