Bush Endorses Amnesty. Sorta.

There’s been an enormous amount of immigration talk lately. Congress is currently looking at various immigration reform proposals. Newt Gingrich thinks the U.S. should just start enforcing our current immigration laws, which really would make the most sense.

Apparently, President Bush “generally favors plans to give millions of illegal immigrants a chance at U.S. citizenship without leaving the country, but does not want to be more publicly supportive because of opposition among conservative House Republicans, according to senators who attended a recent White House meeting.” Granting amnesty to illegals would probably force me to move out of the country for good. Although, this could possibly result in a huge voter turnout by hispanics in favor of republicans.

I’ll be writing more about immigration in the next couple days, and how the mexican-american population usually manages to sabotage their own agenda.

Ben Domenech Resigns

Ben Domenech has had a rough few days. He started off taking shit for his new Red America blog over at WaPo. Then he’s called a bigot for some blog posts he made a while back at Red State.

Now, he’s been forced to resign from his position at WaPo due to plagiarism charges (also posted at official WaPo Blog). It was probably a good idea for him to step down. Lots of people from both sides wanted to see him go.

Jim Brady posted at Red America announcing Ben’s resignation. Jim is the executive editor at washingtonpost.com. Below are conservative bloggers with some rather interesting things to say about Domenech:
Riehl World View
The Political Pit Bull
Outside The Beltway
Michelle Malkin
Don Surber
Right Wing Nut House
Iowa Voice

All-in-all, this sucks. Had there not been such a huge initial furor over Ben and WaPo, Red America would still be around. I understand peoples anger about Ben though. He did plagiarize, losing Red America are the consequences of his actions. Too bad.

Washington Post Gets Red

The ever-liberal Washington Post is starting up a new blog. The blog is named Red America and is being run by Ben Domenech, co-founder of RedState.

The launch of this new blog has apparently upset some liberals. Not sure why, I thought these types were all about “letting people choose” and providing un-biased information. I guess that only applies to media outlets they deem to be “conservative”.

NewsBusters has a nice post concerning the liberal whining. Others blogging on this topic include Protein Wisdom, Donklephant, Decicion ’08, and Wizbang.

I, for one, welcome our new WaPo blog overlords. Oh, and if you want some more info about Ben and his work, check out the first post on Red America.

UPDATE 7:10PM CST:
I found this post at MyDD to be very amusing. Apparently the right-wing blogosphere has been destroyed.

Glenn Reynolds is a columnist for MSNBC. Andrew Sullivan is a columnist for Time. Michelle Malkin is a frequently published columnist in a number of offline outlets. And now, RedState co-founder Ben Domenech has a regular column in the Washington Post.

I might be wrong, but doesn’t that help show how successful the conservative blogosphere has been? I’m pretty sure it does…crazy hippies. Now, I’m a member of the “conservative blogosphere”, and I’ve seen nothing but growth since my arrival. I’m not a big enough creature to matter though, so I guess it sucks to be me? I dunno, dun care.
