    these very same people did not seem to mind the awful, racist things Limbaugh's been saying about African-Americans.

    Now that it's becoming to "inconvenient" to alienate Latinos and it's costing them dearly, NOW they change their minds - but only about Latinos.  They still don't mind alienating African-Americans, though.

    And you can bet, they wouldn't be critizing Limbaugh even now if it weren't for the fact that they can't win elections any other way.

      everyone is saying that this is the end of the Southern Strategy...I don't think so.

      What they can attempt to do is to alienate Latinos from African Americans once immigration reform is passed.

      "Latinos" wouldn't be the first immigrant ethnic group to turn of African Americans...in fact, the strategy works, to extent.

        There's a critical aspect, that's true of Mexican-Americans only. Salvadorans might easily merge, but wouldn't add much voting population.
