[DANA BASH, CNN CONGRESSIONAL CORRESPONDENT]: But like anything in politics, there are shades of gray. Senator John Cornyn is a Texas Republican searching for a middle ground. He says illegal immigrants should be able to work in the U.S. legally, but only if they return to their country of origin first.
(on camera): How worried are you about the deep divide within your own party over this issue?
SEN. JOHN CORNYN (R), TEXAS: I really am not worried about it. I think it's actually healthy.
BASH: You think it's healthy? In an election year it's healthy?
CORNYN: Well, you know, that's the problem in America, we're always having elections.
And then the voice over keeps talking about immigration! This Senator basically said the problem in America is that we too many elections!?!?! Hello, you're (supposed to be) a journalist. For the love of God, if you can't pick out stupid comments in an interview, you need to be fired. No offense to the imigration debate, but I'm pretty sure the cornerstone of our democracy is a bit more important.
