Fox News analysts Kirsten Powers & Michelle Malkin
FNC analysts Kirsten Powers and Michelle Malkin joined The Factor
with their views on an immigration bill being discussed in Congress. Malkin denounced the legislation as far too accomodating toward illegals. "This is a Christmas tree for the open-borders lobby. The bill is 700 pages and it has everything from a 'guest worker' program to tuition discounts for illegal aliens." The Factor
joked that he and his guests could do far better. "Michelle, Kirsten, and I could do this in 48 hours. We could come up with a humane bill that protects Americans." News Link: Judge gives Maryland child molester just 4 months in prison
On a far different subject, Powers rationalized the enduring fascination with Anna Nicole Smith. "People think celebrities have such great lives, but with this story you get a look that says it's really not that glamorous. People are fascinated with that. This was a profoundly depressed person." Malkin was far less charitable toward people who follow this story. "Too many Americans are celebrity-obsessed tabloid junkies who live vicariously through c-list celebrities and their groupies." The Factor
compared Smith with another woman in the news. "I don't feel sorry for Anna Nicole Smith, she made her own road. I feel sorry for Elizabeth Edwards, who is courageous. She gets this terrible disease and she's fighting it."
