The Marginal Devolution

DougJ has an interesting post up on Balloon Juice observing the failure of anti-immigration rhetoric as a campaign strategy, in both New York and Arizona, not to mention the past presidential election. He then compares this mistaken GOP thinking to how they handled the stimulus bill -- again letting themselves be driven by the howling minority within their own constituency, while ignoring what the majority of the country wants. (cf.)

And if you're going to tell me that it was purely a matter of principal (ha-ha, that was for Alastair) principle that led the House Republicans to vote unanimously against the stimulus bill, twice, I'm just going to say: honkie, please.
