    the GOP ignoring its problem within the Latino demographic.  I think that it is a problem with the losses they would take among the bigoted base they have actively courted since LBJ signed the Civil Rights Bill into law.  

    They've spent 50+ years building a party held together by intolerance and now can no more win by attempting to regain favor with non-whites and alienating a piece of their white hood wearing base than they can by failing to court latinos and hoping they have enough angry white men.  They've painted themselves into a corner and from the 2nd week in November into the foreseeable future I intend to get in their earholes point it out over and over and over...

    Picture a bright blue ball just spinnin' spinnin' free. It's dizzy with possibility.
