Interestingly though, there may be something else in play here. A diversion:
Democratic Web Ad Angers Some HispanicsI expect the Post and the Times to be all over this story ... in my next life.
By Suzanne Gamboa, Associated Press Writer
WASHINGTON (AP) -- A Democratic political ad is under fire from Hispanics who say it unfairly compares Latino immigrants to terrorists.
The Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee sponsored a 35-second ad on its Web site that shows footage of two people scaling a border fence mixed with images of Osama Bin Laden and North Korea President Kim Jong Il.
Houston City Councilwoman Carol Alvarado, a Democrat, sent a letter to DSCC Chairman Sen. Charles Schumer of New York asking that the ad be pulled. She said it could alienate Latino voters.
"To liken Latino immigrants to bazooka-toting terrorists not only undermines the positive relationship our party has with this community, but also lowers us to a despicable level as breeders of unfounded fear and hatred," Alvarado wrote. (link)
* To be fair to Senator Allen, the monkey is actually called a macaque of the genus macaca. I'm sure he was making that distinction when he called the stalker that bad name.
