Within Tea Party Sect of the GOP the term “Regularize” (a) can be used as a synonym for the word “amnesty” in the context of providing a path to citizenship (i.e., amnesty) for illegal immigrants working in the United States; (b) can refer to the involuntary “Teabagging” of an elected official through defeat in a GOP Primary or in the general election.Used in a sentence:
(1) "To put an end to amnesty once and for all, to secure our borders, to end any of this misguided talk about open borders, it is time to 'regularize' the status of John McCain. Send him back here to be a citizen among us," (2) “John McCain was sending out letters earlier this spring offering the boilerplate denial, saying 'Well you know I oppose amnesty.' And then in the next paragraph saying 'we must grant concessions to these people and regularize their status.' That's the new term [for amnesty]."Heck, I think JD Hayworth has a point here, not about the undocumented workers but about J-Mac. I’d love to see McCain “regularized” this November. I don’t think JD has got what it takes to get the job done in the primary. But if he’s man enough he can help “regularize” McCain this November.
