I want my MTP slot: The immigration debate is rapidly becoming the Marco Rubio Show. He’s urging Democrats to hold hearings on the draft amnesty legislation (when it is finally drafted), something Judiciary Committee Chairman Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) has said he doesn’t plan to do. If Rubio withdraws from the so-called “Gang of 8″ as a result, that might doom the bill. It’s enough of an implicit threat to attract lots of attention even if Rubio’s just posturing. Unlike Kim Jong-un, he can hit the mainland.
How long before John McCain subtly (or not-so-subtly) snaps at his fellow Gang-of-8 member for
stealing the spotlight holding up the rush to amnesty? I give it 72 hours. …. That’s 24 more hours than Rand Paul got. . . .
