Do the Honky Pokey

Think Progress has a pretty astonishing clip from John McCain's appearance on O'Reilly's show that really takes the cake-- or perhaps capirotada, if we liberals manage to succeed in our diabolical plans.

O’Reilly: But do you understand what the New York Times wants, and the far-left want? They want to break down the white, Christian, male power structure, which you’re a part, and so am I, and they want to bring in millions of foreign nationals to basically break down the structure that we have. In that regard, Pat Buchanan is right. So I say you’ve got to cap with a number.

McCain: In America today we’ve got a very strong economy and low unemployment, so we need addition farm workers, including by the way agriculture, but there may come a time where we have an economic downturn, and we don’t need so many.

O’Reilly: But in this bill, you guys have got to cap it. Because estimation is 12 million, there may be 20 [million]. You don’t know, I don’t know. We’ve got to cap it.

McCain: We do, we do. I agree with you.

I think that could be the most insanely paranoid thing I've ever heard O'Reilly say. And that's what it's all about.
