I am a policy guy. Tell me your policy and I will tell you whether I like it and think it is good for the country. That is my only political yard stick.
I care not whether you are in favor of or opposed to Dr Seuss, but I do want to know whether you support having a border or making the US an uninterrupted continuum that starts in Central America and continues to Montana (or the North Pole). That is policy.
Which brings me to the issue of EARMARKS.
