The Sopranos and the Senate

Watching the final episode of “The Sopranos” last night was kind of like watching the downfall of the immigration bill in the Senate. It is as if David Chase was studying Harry Reid’s every move.

Great anticipation followed by a dull end.  When is the movie coming out?

Ted Kennedy is like Tony Soprano. Lots of charisma but a little on the heavy side. He is barking orders but he can’t finish the job of winning his battle without the help of the feds (George Bush, in this case).

Talk of a sequel is already starting when it comes to immigration. Democrats say that they will bring it back if there is an agreement on the number of amendments that Republicans bring up. Kind of like the agreement reached by the New Jersey and New York crews, to the ultimate downfall of Phil Leotardo.

Tom Tancredo is kind of like Phil. All this attention is getting to his head. He loves to bash immigrants so much he has decided to run for president.

The final episode of “The Sopranos” left more questions than answers. Will Tony turn to the feds? Will all the Sopranos die in the local pizzeria? Will A.J. become a successful movie producer? What happens to Dr. Melfi? Does Meadow end up serving as the defense lawyer for the entire Sopranos clan?

The final episode on the immigration bill spurred similar questions. Does this whole episode kill McCain’s presidential run? Is that it for the president and his domestic agenda? What happens to Jon Kyl? Will there be a spin-off in the House or will the network decline to pick it up?

I hope there is a Sopranos movie. I love this stuff.

And I hope there is another episode in the immigration debate. Senator Reid pulled the plug too early on this long-running Senate series.
