Political savvy

Francine Busby has none. From this weekend in the special election in California's 50th Congressional District comes one of the craziest lines in recent political history:

“You don't need papers for voting.”

Hugh hits it right on the head: My guess is that the audio clip will play at least a hundred times on radio heard in the district over the next 48 hours. It isn't a gaffe so much as a stunning bit of clarity about Democratic indifference to the rules, and Busby can't recover from it.

I would expect Busby to bomb today like nobody's business. 'Course if she doesn't, Hugh's right about something else (more importantly so):

If the 50th goes "D" anyway, it will be very difficult to argue that illegal immigration is the seismic political issue that many believe it to be.

What that would mean for November is an interesting thought indeed.
