If CPAC is any indication, maybe so. (Link to the always insightful James Kirkpatrick.)
Ann Coulter distinguished herself from the Conservative Inc. herd at CPAC by declaring herself a single-issue amnesty voter. (Link to the always solid Ilana Mercer.)
“What public policy will harm average Americans, drive up unemployment, change America permanently in negative way, and is supported by businessmen who will never vote for a Republican anyway?
Amnesty for illegal aliens.
Half of the elected Republicans support it, most conservative talk radio and TV hosts support it: You want the Republican establishment? That’s the Republican establishment.
There are many negative consequences to amnesty. The one that I think ought to concern this crowd is: If amnesty goes forward, America becomes California and no Republican will ever win a national election [IM: that goes for libertarian candidates too].
As it is, the state that gave us Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan will never elect another Republican.
I can see why Democrats would want amnesty, but why are Marco Rubio and the endless Bushes supporting it? [IM: that should be obvious.]
We cannot get the votes of a dependent society without changing our principles…”
What is so frustrating is how obvious this should be to any remotely thinking Republican.

And to give credit where credit is due, Rush Limbaugh remains solid on immigration.
