Here, you are urged and encouraged to run your mouths about something important.

It should be obvious that unlike John McCain, Lindsey Graham is not up for re-election until 2014. He's pairing up with New York corruptocrat Chuck Schumer to re-visit the issue of Immigration Reform. Three years ago, the American people stood up against the proposed bill because it didn't secure the borders first.

Now this:
Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., chairman of the Immigration Subcommittee of the Judiciary Committee, and Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C. are set to appear Thursday at the White House for a meeting with President Obama in which they are expected to seek his guidance on charting a path forward.

The reform effort blew up in 2007 after more than a year of work when Republican critics branded the effort as "amnesty" and the tide of public opinion turned strongly against the bill.

Graham, in fact, was booed at a Republican gathering in his state in 2006 for his work on comprehensive reform with Ted Kennedy and John McCain. Sen. McCain is conspicuously absent from the current talks; Graham remains at the table as the lone Republican supporter.
What I find particularly interesting is that Schumer and Graham very much want to get another Republican on-board with the effort. The most likely candidate would normally be John McCain. However, unlike Lindsey Grahamnesty, McCain is not only up for re-election in 2010 but he's in the middle of a very hotly contested primary against a candidate in J.D. Hayworth. Immigration enforcement is what the latter is running on as evidenced by Sheriff Joe Arpaio's endorsement.

The fact that McCain is silent on the issue tells you everything you need to know. If he truly believed Grahamnesty's latest foray into immigration reform was the will of his constituents, he'd be right there with his buddy Lindsey, pushing for it as well.

If this effort for Immigration reform was about border enforcement, it would be an entirely different debate. Instead, Lindsey "RINO" Grahamnesty is letting the people know that he is more interested in ramming a three year-old bill down their throats than he is in doing what they want. In the twisted minds of politicians, avoiding impasses at all costs by compromising principles is better than standing on principle and getting nothing done. Lindsey has said as much in the past.

Frankly, I'd love it if congress just shut down and went home.
