Scoring points off illegals.

Two Senators try (very late) to add legislation to ask census responders "if they're here legally."

This is patently ridiculous grandstanding as 1) It's too late and all the census stuff has already been printed, and 2) There's no way this Congress goes along with that.

This is all about slimy immigration/race politics, and two Senators, David Vitter and Utah's Bob Bennett, trying to score points with their base ahead of career threatening primaries next year. And with the way the Census and primaries are timed closely together early next year, this "fear of the brown" kind of position will guarantee Vitter and Bennett their anti-immigrant/anti-Census FoxNews face time right when they need it most.

It's really pretty disgusting.
