Late last night I checked out the Lakers-Nuggets game on ESPN. During a break in the action, suddenly a political ad was played for my Cox Cable area’s viewers — in Spanish. Makes sense, no? The Lakers after all represent Los Angeles, a large Spanish-speaking market.
But wait. I live in Northern Virginia. The ad had nothing to do with California’s coming propositions. It was for Virginia’s Democratic gubernatorial candidate, Tim Kaine. There are enough registered Hispanic voters in this area to reach out to? That’s not something you hear much about.
Instead, the impression is always that most Hispanics here are presumed to be undocumented and thus not citizens, which is probably unfair to many thousands who have become naturalized. Regardless, Democrats must consider them all their own, no questions asked. Otherwise, why not attract them in English?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
