Sarah Palin spoke out against Sen. Marco Rubio for his role in pushing the Senate’s immigration reform bill, calling the Florida Republican an “amnesty supporter,” and saying that the legislation will serve as a “rallying cry” in the 2014 elections.
“It’s beyond disingenuous for anyone to claim that a vote for this bill is a vote for security,” she wrote on her Facebook page. “Look no further than the fact that Senator Rubio and amnesty supporters nixed Senator [John] Thune’s amendment that required the feds to finally build part of a needed security fence before moving forward on the status of illegal immigrants who’ve already broken the law to be here.” She added: “There are plenty of other commonsense solutions, but this bill isn’t about fixing problems; it’s about amnesty at all costs.”
“As the Senate moves to pass amnesty, the only bright spot in this travesty is the rallying revolution we can look forward to,” Palin continued. “For just as opposition to Obamacare became a rallying cry for the 2010 midterm elections, opposition to this fundamentally transforming amnesty bill will galvanize the grassroots in next year’s elections. And 2014 is just around the corner.”
Meanwhile, a new survey by the Republican-leaning Rasmussen finds that Rubio’s approval rating among Republicans is tanking. From Rasmussen:
Rubio, the most visible advocate of the Senate’s comprehensive immigration reform plan, is now viewed favorably by 58% of Republican voters nationwide. That down 10 points since May and 15 points since February. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 16% of GOP voters have an unfavorable opinion of him, while 25% are undecided.

World's best pie apple. Essential for Tarte Tatin. Has five prominent ribs.
So pretty. So early. So ephemeral. Tastes like strawberry candy (slightly).
My personal fave. Ultra-crisp. Graham cracker flavor. Should be famous. Isn't.
High flavored with notes of blood orange and allspice. Very rare.
Jefferson's favorite. The best all-purpose American apple.
New Hampshire's native son has a grizzled appearance and a strangely addictive curry flavor. Very, very rare.
Makes the best hard cider in America. Soon to be famous.
Freak seedling found in an Oregon field in the '60s has pink flesh and a fragrant strawberry snap. Makes a killer rose cider.
Ben Franklin's favorite. Queen Victoria's favorite. Only apple native to NYC.
Really does taste like pineapple.
