Not Even A Little Bit

So replied a character played by Kirk Douglas to a character played by Lana Turner in the 1952 movie about a ruthless producer, The Bad and the Beautiful, when she asked, "Will you marry me?"

Which brings me to my point. What is the big deal about whether illegal immigrants should have driver's licenses? Yo, people, they're not supposed to be here in the first place, remember? Yet both Hillary Clinton (two weeks ago in Philadelphia) and Barack Obama (last night in Las Vegas) hemmed and hawed when asked this question. So what's the problem? (Illegal immigrants don't vote, either, folks.) If there's a concern about alienating the Latino vote (hardly every person here illegally is Latino, but they probably make up the bulk of this group because of our proximity to Mexico), propose working out a plan to deal with the issue.

Coming up with the right answer to this question seems like a slam dunk to me. Damn, even Chris Dodd recognized that.

The enormous amount of things that politicians hem and haw about that should be slam dunk, easy, questions to answer never ceases to amaze me. They will find a way to skirt around and double-speak any thing.
