But longtime schoolteacher Rep. Mark Takano, D-Calif., is already looking forward to the next battle, breaking out his trusty red pen to mark up and grade a “Dear Colleague” letter from House Republicans warning Speaker John A. Boehner to tread carefully on any immigration overhaul.

A Takano aide told HOH the office found the developing missive on a congressional message board and immediately set about analyzing the arguments involved, as well as style points.

Per Team Takano, Republicans have yet to weigh on the California Democrat’s biting critique.
