You may want to get out your red pen to correct Newt's, ahem ... "oversights" in describing his plan to eliminate the illegal population by converting illegal aliens into "guest workers."

Redefining the concept of "amnesty" is an old and transparently lame political maneuver. In 2007 when some Republicans (hola, Lindsey Graham, John McCain and George W. Bush) sided with the late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy to attempt passage of another legalization bill, you stood a better chance of hearing it described as a crook-necked squash than the amnesty it was.

Any legislation or administrative legalization policy that allows illegal aliens to stay in the U.S. is amnesty -- again.
