    Since the Latino community is made up of normally intelligent people, they should be able to accept this.
    Is Rush Limbaugh a fringe character?
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    I think that may be part, but I think the media and the left make a much huger deal about it when conservatives do it. You could find similar stuff said about Gonzales and Rice when they were nominated. But its "acceptable" to slur and attack republicans on race becuase I mean, republicans are ONLY white old men so any minority put in a place of power MUST be a token and therefore its perfectly fine to insult them all day long.

    How do you feel, personally, about the right's handling of it?

    Eh, I don't think its goin to hurt them more with the latino population and I think they need to stop trying to do things specifically to "reach out". I hate identity politics and think its absurd trying to do things to reach out to a specific segment. If your message and acts are good it will help americans not black americans or white americans or latino americans. The same thing with the immigration BS where they pissed off the grand portion of their base, including latinos in their base, in hopes of pandering to latinos who in the end didn't give a **** anyways.

    I think some of the calls of racism by the right against Sotomayor has been idiotic. I also think some of the calls of racism by the left for people daring to actually critically anaylize her statements is ALSO idiotic. But it goes back to the fact that the right is stereotyped as racist so its PERFECTLY OKAY to do that, but no one bats an eye at a left leaning person doing it because no one on the left could ever be racist.

    Who has the left called racist that you didn't think was justified? I haven't really seen that, but I've been too busy to pay a lot of attention.
