    •  They don't do cultural nuance very well (5+ / 0-)

      They just have Bobo disease, and can't get that "Hispanics" are a whole bunch of different cultures and people.  Watch, next time they'll try the Mexican Hat Dance for an audience of upland Maya from Guatemala.  "Huh?  You mean Venezuelans are different from Peruvians?"   Whaddya mean there's 29 major dialects of Spanish?"

    •  Yeah, sure. Latinos are a natural GOP constituency (4+ / 0-)

      They've spent years demeaning them and insulting them and saying they don't belong here and they're takers...and...and..
      and...and....

      Good thing for the GOP that Latinos don't have any pride or any memory. Good thing they won't remember the things the Republicans and their talk radio echo chamber and their militia bullies have said about Latinos for the past four years plus. Good thing, especially, that they aren't a young demographic with a high birth rate.

      If any of the above were true, California would have already turned blue, along with New Mexico, Nevada, and Colorado. And Latinos would have registered, stood in long lines, and voted overwhelmingly for the Democrats earlier this month.

      Krauthammer and his clown friends have shown up at a knife fight armed with talking points. They're gonna get hurt, amigos!
