Ze Governator throws red meat to his base
with comments that offend Hispanics, but which will have his core supporters clapping and cheering.
Scratch a Republican, see the white bedsheet underneath. Or the swastika in this case, given that the Governator hails from the same locale as that short painter dude who got half of German manhood killed...
Will it hurt his governor's run? Of course not. The people he offended weren't voting for him in the first place. This wasn't an off-the-cuff remark. This was a remark specifically calculated to shore up his support amongst the Republican base, a Republican base that in an earlier era would be capering about in a pointy hood and bedsheet, and nowdays merely vote Republican (cheaper than buying bedsheets -- have you see the price of new bedsheets lately?!).

I wish somebody would force-feed Angelides some raw meat and gunpowder. Or at least wake him up. I'm gonna vote for him, but he's hopeless.
