Senate bipartisanship coupled with Obama’s endorsement makes immigration reform easier than playing a long par-5 with a strong wind at your back

Suddenly we have some news that actually is more exciting than watching a yacht race.

Bipartisanship and immigration reform really are riding in tandem these days.

Next thing you know lions and lambs will be dancing duets.

And you thought this week was all about Super Bowl hype and reports that A-Rod gobbled PEDs like they were PEZ.

First a bipartisan group of senators that included marquee neon names like McCain, Rubio and Schumer cobbled together a comprehensive immigration reform.

Then today in Las Vegas, President Obama placed a wager on the Super Bowl and then made a crucial tactical shift as he embraced the senators’ plan.

Indeed, you could have knocked over a craps dealer with one chip after Obama failed to unveil a more liberal approach and didn’t call for a faster and more straightforward path to citizenship for undocumented workers and students,

The president said the pathway to citizenship he would create would require those here illegally to go the back of the line behind legal applicants.

Sounds fair. Everybody hates it when somebody jumps in front of the line, which frequently triggers a heated debate on gun control.

    You’re oversimplifying this, Zeke. Conservatives will only be on board with this if it comes with strict border security and an employment verification system, the most frequently discussed of which is E-verify.
