.....or maybe who took it out?
Through the 2004 election the wedge issue strategy of Karl Rove and his evil elves Bill Frist and Denny Hastert worked like a charm but something happened. In early 2005 the attempt to create a hell of the living dead in the person of Terri Schiavo backfired. A vast majority of Americans, including nearly half of the Evangelical Christian base, said wait a minute! the kool-aide has a bad taste. The latest wedge issue to explode on the launching pad appears to be immigration. Joe Gandleman has the details in a couple of great posts so there is no need for me to take up bandwidth. Go check out what Joe has to say.
