I’m amazed no one is playing the only trump card Alberto Gonzales has in the current inquisition. Why no effort whatsoever to rally Hispanic support on his behalf? Or to drive home he was the first Hispanic to become Attorney General? It’s not that the Bush administration was shy about its motives in nominating him in the first place? What gives?
One thing we do know is that Democrats will show no mercy for any privileged-minority member who thinks he can survive outside their ranks. Only at such times do our politics become color blind.
