ROBERT TAGORDA WONDERS if Cruz Bustamante isn’t using the MEChA issue to energize Latino voters.

Hmm. Makes the parallel to race-baiting Southern politicians of previous generations all the stronger, doesn’t it? Bustamante may indeed be trying to use racism in an effort to win election. The question is, why are the Democrats going along? The answer, I guess, is that they care more about winning than they do about racism.

UPDATE: Charles Austin makes a Vietnam analogy.
