CNN’s Lou Dobbs battles Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL) over illegal immigration on Wednesday’s show. Gutierrez tosses up so many red herrings it’s hard to know where to start, so I’ll just quote a Dobbs question instead.

“Why is it that Democratic leadership, these Democratic presidential candidates, every one of them, pushing comprehensive immigration reform, which is amnesty, which your own Congressional Budget Office said would be a disaster, you guys continue to push for it as though the American people don’t mean a damn thing to you? What happened to the idea that the majority rules in this country?”

Gutierrez answers predictably. Evidently he hasn’t seen any polls on the subject. It does get entertaining when Dobbs begs Gutierrez to call him a racist.
