"This is the country I've served and defended... And here, right matters."

I had sort of expected to see this plastered all over the MSM, but had trouble finding it at all yesterday. Today this comes from a NYT opinion piece.

I kept thinking of the gold star father at the Dem convention (sorry I can't remember his name). These are the true faces of immigration in the U.S. Who, in their right mind, would want to reduce our access to such people?

I guess "in their right mind" is the key....

Edit: Here's an excellent statement of Vidman's impact.

Well, than most Republicans anyway.
