"How did it come to pass that an opposition's measure of a president's foreign policy was all or nothing, success or "failure"? The answer is that the political absolutism now normal in Washington arrived at the moment--Nov. 7, 2000--that our politics subordinated even a war against terror to seizing the office of the presidency." - Daniel Henninger - WSJ 11/18/05

Worksite Enforcement in the Non-Ficitonal Age of Orwell

Secretary of Homeland Security, Janet Napolitano said that Work site enforcements, 'should focus' "on employers who intentionally and knowingly exploit the illegal labor market."
Rather than those that "intentionally and knowingly exploit" legal immigration we are Left to assume. Further assumption is as always necessary when reading news reports on the "immigration" "debate" as between those that disparage "illegal" entry into the country as xenophobic with the "illegal" "immigrant" represented as a member of the "pro-immigrant rights community."

....and they call the Right Orwellian..."illegal immigration reform" is mainly a reformation of meaning.
