I will be adding some new blog posts this week, but there have been some interesting items in the news worth noting.
Lou Dobbs ponders a run for the Senate or the White House. I think that the opposition would have a field day with some of the outrageous things Lou has spewed forth.
Ruben Navarrette suggests that undocumented Mexicans self-deport. His argument is somewhat well constructed, but I think that this kind of rhetoric will empower Minutemen groups who will attempt to assist in the self-deportations. Actually, I would love to see Ruben pitch this idea to La Opinion or any other outlet with more of an immigrant audience just to see the reaction it produces. It is easy for the “Harvard Chicano” to make these suggestions to what I assume is a more upper income, conservative San Diego set of readers.
Finally, Marco Rubio, the Florida GOP Senatorial primary candidate, says that he would welcome an endorsement from Sarah Palin. Sure, she’s very popular, but after what happened to the candidate she endorsed in NY, I don’t know if I would be rushing to welcome anything from her.
