And they wonder why we cry "bias!"

Where was this article during the election? I'll tell you where: sitting on someone's desk because it would cast Republicans in general (and McCain in particular) in a positive light. You may think that's crazy but since the Left was busy painting McCain to be George W. Bush's evil twin, this kind of news needed to stay in the desk drawer until it could do no good for anyone.

Headline: Bush admin. makes immigration strides in 2008

WASHINGTON – The U.S. government arrested and deported record numbers of illegal immigrants — nearly 350,000 — in the past year, authorities say. It has also naturalized a record number of new Americans during the same time period, more than 1 million. Bush administration officials consider these to be great accomplishments within a system that President-elect Obama calls "broken and overwhelmed" on his transition Web site.

Had this article seen the light of day two weeks ago, there would have been something else to talk about during the campaign. And that something just might have been good for the Conservative movement. We can't have that, can we?
