Are Republican aides really that tonedeaf? Yes, according to the NY Times.
I don’t think even hardcore lefties use language this evocative to describe the xenophobes:
Mr. Boehner urged patience, saying there was a “narrow path” to get something done, despite opposition in his party from what Republican aides call the “boxcars crowd,” a reference to conservative members who favor deportation for most of the 11 million.
Wow. That’s harsh …
