CALIFORNIA SCHEMING

Wow. The stooping just gets lower & lower. According to A.P., the letter sent to California Latino voters earlier in the week, warning them that if they are illegal or simply immigrants they could face "jail time," appears to have been written & sent by . . . "a Republican campaign."

Well, surprise, surprise, surprise.

A spokesman for California Attorney General, Bill Lockyer, told reporters that they've identified "where [they] believe the mailing list was obtained," even though he won't yet reveal the specific campaign.

I've tried very hard for a few years now not to pile on the GOP, instead trying to view politicians individually, and not through a party lens. I have enough complaints about the Democrats to fill a campaign war chest. I don't like the Republicans, but I'm no fan of the Dems.

That said, the Republicans seem hell-bent on turning every independant voter into a rock-ribbed Democrat this year. Even if someone wanted to vote Republican, how could they pull that particular lever with any degree of confidence after all that's happened lately?

Unbelievable.

Yeah, the behavior of the Republican Party at the national level is probably going to be the deciding factor for my vote in the race for my district's rep.

They want cheap labor, not informed voters.

Sort of like, Jose can clean my pool, and Maria can take care of my baby, just keep them away from the damn voting booth, huh?

Yeah, that's pretty much how Mrs. T sees things. She doesn't like the dems, but man does she loathe the current crop of gopers.

When you're loathsome, you're gonna be loathed.

Didn't Lincoln talk about that? You can loathe half the politicians half the time, and you can loathe all the policians half of the time . . .

Guess what, the word is that the Republican responsible is a Vietnamese immigrant.

White people are actually innocent for once. :) It's a battle between two different immigrant ethnic groups.
