Hughie just does't have an argument based on principles either for or against amnesty, just intellectual laziness. Goind back to early Bush era, he was among the first Republicans to attack Tancredo in highly personal terms and offerred no argoments against him other than "i'm right, you're wrong!"...an actual quote of Hughie's that's ben repeated over the years. Hughie, lie most Republicans, is extremely concerned that Lefties who despise him will think bad things about him and label him a raaaycist. Unlike anti-illegal migration anti-amnestyConservatives, Hughie - as a Republican - will not define himself as anti-illegal immigration as opposed to pro-legal migration, he lets that Left define the terms of debate.
