The Emerging Meme

The LA Times has the emerging meme about the failure of the immigration bill -- it was, supposedly, a triumph of the extremes over the middle.

Truth is, not so much. Check out poll results.

Actually, the bill's drafter's and proponents were out of step with the wishes and priorities of the vast majority of the American people. When a bill fails under such conditions, that's a triumph for representative democracy, not a repudiation of the concept of moderation.
