We can all celebrate with the prospect of Linda Chavez being part of G.W. Bush's cabinet behind us. The Democrats in Washington in all their wisdom opposed her primarily for being Hispanic. The allowance of Hispanic-Americans to positions of high power could potentially cast light upon their lies.
The Democrats need to continue the conveyance of other lies that Republicans are racist and hateful. The Democrats need to do all they can to convince Hispanics that they are the Hispanic party, even if it means they must reject Hispanics simply on the basis of their ethnicity.
Put simply, the Democrats must resort to racism if they are to continue with their charges of racism.
The argument that Chavez harbored an illegal alien and therefore cannot serve as secretary of labor is hardly cogent when lying under oath and obstruction of justice (must more serious charges than the charge of caring for and helping people) are not considered punishable offenses. But alas, to the Democratic Party, the only good Mexican is one who votes Democratic.
