Kyl, Other Assholes Selling Insurance To Each Other To Try Again For Amnesty

A question I'll be looking into: Did Jon Kyl promise, as most other Arizona politicians did, to honor the results of a state recall election?

Does Jon Kyl think Arizonans will have much trouble garnering the 25% of his voters needed to force a recall election?

Because I don't.

Sometimes it's not enough to kick a dog who just won't learn.

Proponents of the immigration bill that stalled in the Senate regrouped Friday, holding strategy sessions and conference calls aimed at salvaging the overhaul.

Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (D-Mass.), Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz.) and other key negotiators said they would return soon to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) with a plan to move the bill toward passage.

The challenge is to whittle a lengthy list of amendments down to about 20, convince Republican critics that they are getting adequate opportunity to air their concerns and spend only two or three days of the Senate floor time to complete the bill, senators said.

“We are not giving up. We are not giving in,” Kennedy said. “The American people expect us to legislate. I think all of us look at the Senate the old-fashioned way: We are here to get something done.”

Kyl said they “have already begun the process of figuring how to get this back together and concluded in the next few weeks.”

In related news, the Chinese show off what they claim is the World's Biggest Dick.

Outside of Arizona, I reckon.

Pride of Authorship In A Piece of Shit: Does John Kyl have any other reason to support this bill other than he worked on it himself?

Let's check the critical reaction as digested by Rasmussen:

"Republicans, Democrats, and unaffiliated voters are opposed. Men are opposed. So are women. The young don’t like it; neither do the no-longer-young. White Americans are opposed. Americans of color are opposed. The last Rasmussen Reports national telephone poll found that just 23% of Americans supported the legislation."

Everyone likes their own work. But when a clear majority is telling you latest work is a damnable piece of shit, you maybe have to consider that it's a damnable piece of shit.
