If the White House was betting that Republicans would overreact to President Obama's impending announcement tonight on immigration, where he's expected to outline a plan that will extend deferred removal to some 5 million undocumented immigrants, boy, were they right.
For instance, Arizona Congressman Matt Salmon, proud representative of Sand Land know-nothings, is all for risking a government shutdown over the president's executive action, and has stated that Obama's move will be "unconstitutional" and an "impeachable offense."
Fox News, Rush Limbaugh, and all of the usual wingnut suspects are in full panic mode, crying for Obama's head. (You know, like normal.) And Republican U.S. Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma has warned darkly of "instances of anarchy" and "violence" to come from Obama's executive order.
