A Conversation That Sort of Took Place Today

Ruy Texiera, 1992: The "browning of America" guarantees an unbreakable, unshakable Democratic majority forever more, because Hispanics lean Democratic.

GOP Chattering Classes: Yes, alas.

GOP Consultant Post-Mortem, 2012: The GOP cannot win without Hispanics, and it cannot win Hispanics without agreeing to some kind of amnesty. Amnesty is critically important to Hispanics, and without amnesty, you can write off their support forever.

GOP Chattering Classes: Indeed! We must have amnesty no matter what.

Marco Rubio Supporters, 2015: Hispanics are hostile to the GOP and the only way to soften their opposition is to nominate a Hispanic boy who likes water and grandpas and mass amnesty for illegals.

GOP Chattering Classes: Took the words right out of our mouths.

#NeverTrumpers, a week ago: You're insane to have nominated Trump -- Hispanics hate him, and therefore he will be blown out in an election.

GOP Chattering Classes: Preaching to the choir, baby.

Donald Trump, this week: This judge is biased against me because he's Hispanic and I'm anti-amnesty.

GOP Chattering Classes: It's so racist to brand an ethnic group politically like that!!!

BTW: I'm not really sure that accusing a minority of having a Democratic bias is really one of the classic racial slurs. I consider racial slurs things like calling someone lazy, stupid, greedy, whatever because of race.

Not accusing someone of most likely having a particular political bent.

Which isn't racism -- it's fucking basic campaign modeling. GOP and Democratic campaign turnout models both assume that Hispanic voters will be something like 65-75% pro-Democrat.

It cannot be racist to say what everyone calculates in their fucking turnout models.

BTW: I'm waiting for the gnashing of teeth over the Democrats' sixty billionth pronouncement that we need Wise Latinas to bring their particular and unique political perspectives to the court.
