The GOP's conception of the average Hispanic voter
-Headline of the Day-
"2012 hopefuls to skip Hispanic forum."
In a sign that the Republican Party has totally given up on Hispanic voters, the vast majority of the GOP's undeclared presidential hopefuls are skipping out on a CPAC-inspired political conference aimed at whatever Hispanic Republicans still exist. Both Hispanic Republican voters are said to be disappointed.
Of the field, which includes Mittens Romney, Newt Gingrich, Sarah Palin, Rick Perry, John Thune, Mitch Daniels, and Mike Huckabee, the only 2012 hopeful willing to commit has been Tim Pawlenty. Why?
Because, in backing the Arizona "papers please" law, Republicans have gone to insane length to justify it. After painting Hispanics as insane, murderous drug-runners bent on reclaiming the southwest for Mexico, it gets a little tough to put on the "friend of the Latino voter" button. These guys get nervous being seen at Taco Bell now, let alone a conference hall filled with the Mexican Menace.
You'd stand as much of a chance seeing them attend a conference for Muslim voters. (Politico)

"Jon Stewart's 9/11 Demagoguery."
The neocon rag The Weekly Standard is terribly disappointed that Jon Stewart chose to politicize 9/11.
No, the magazine that nearly humped 9/11 to death to justify invading Iraq isn't joking. But that doesn't mean they aren't a joke. (Weekly Standard)
