i haven’t had the opportunity to follow closely, but the new republic has a really good article.

my question is, since when do we … the american public … swallow the concept that republicans give a sh_t about immigrants, legal or illegal? i’d love to see the media stop protecting their financial base and go after some of these blowhards. where are the quotes from past speeches, press conferences, etc.? the disdain for the intelligence of the american public is insulting.

for all anyone cares about elian, they ought to just wrap him in pigskin and toss him from capitol hill to pennsylvania avenue and back again. he is the penultimate political football. our american pratfalls are making castro look like a humanitarian …


Just a point: the article referenced here was written in mid-January.

Yeah, but it’s remarkably prescient, I think…
