The Ozarks Politics blog, in its series of profiles of arch-conservative types that it dubs "Wingnuts on Parade," turns its focus on Ed Emery, R-Lamar, today:
Emery is famous for his claim that the immigration problem in this country is the direct result of legalized abortion. "We hear a lot of arguments today that the reason that we can't get serious about our borders is that we are desperate for all these workers," Emery said. "You don't have to think too long. If you kill 44 million of your potential workers, it's not too surprising we would be desperate for workers." Talk about Freakonomics ran amok.
