It's Dead! Immigration Bill Dies in Senate! Bad Loser Reid tables the Bill

For now, anyway--the abomination that was the "Grand Agreement" Amnesty Bill is dead; having failed two cloture votes today after Barack Obama, Byron Dorgan, and other Democrats added the latest (of many) poison pill amendments last night--and also after defeating a Republican amendment last night which would have exempted felons from receiving Amnesty. Let me translate that: the Democrats wanted to grant felons Amnesty from being deported. Got that?

Mickey Kaus exults; as does Michelle Malkin. Dean Barnett: The Bill Sleeps With the Fishes.

I am so proud of my countrymen today--even as I am ashamed of the morons we have unwittingly placed into the halls of power. But for once, our voices have been heard. This will probably not be the last time the elites try to pull the wool over the eyes of the American people--but hopefully our success over the last three weeks will bolster us to continue the fight on this and other vital issues.

WELL DONE! I am going to pour a glass of really good Burgundy to celebrate!
