Asa! bobs and weaves

Posted By on Sun, Apr 16, 2006 at 5:42 AM

Brummett talks to Asa! about immigration and Brummett finds him Clintonian. (And later in the column gives him no slack at all on his demagoguery re Paron High School.)

Hutchinson said he could not embrace the thrust of Holt's bill in the last regular state legislative session, which was to force officials to turn in illegal immigrants needing services. He said we need to preserve our right to be "Good Samaritans" so that we can provide emergency medical care to a child without insisting on the production of documents by parents. Yet he said we can't put ourselves in the position of having our generosity abused.

He seems almost Clintonian in the way he bobs and weaves on the issue, and I mean that in a nicer way than perhaps Asa will take it, considering that he once prosecuted Bill Clinton for bobbing and weaving about sex.
