Poetic Justice, Law of Karma, Divine Retribution...

A hidden gem in the New York Times story about immigration is the story of poetic justice, law of karma, divine retribution, whatever!

It looks like Rep. F. James Sensenbrenner Jr. of Wisconsin, "the departing chairman of the Judiciary Committee and an architect of the House immigration approach" wasn't offered any "senor position on any major committee in the new Congress."

Wah, ha, ha, ha, ha. Oh how the haughty and mighty have fallen.

Sensenbrenner, if you recall, was the chairman who turned off the mike during a Judiciary Committee hearing on the Patriot Act while Democrats were on the floor talking.

Oh yes, he walked off with a wide smirk on his face, knowing that poor Democrats couldn't do a thing about it; that same self-satisfied smirk we'd grown to love and hate during his stint as House manager during the Clinton impeachment.

It was all about the rule of law during the 90s when Clinton was president; but when poor Conyers wanted to investigate voter fraud or any alleged Republican wrongdoing, well, he had to make do with a tiny room in the basement.

Yes, one reaps what one sows; and it's reaping and weeping time for Herr Sensenbrenner.

To quote the great Nelson of Simpsons fame: "Hah, hah!"
