  •  She has made Texas a force to be reckoned with. (13+ / 0-)

    We will be gloating with her when it goes blue in a couple of election cycles.

    And Texas is one reason that the GOP is going to allow immigration reform to get talked about as a way to gobble up the Hispanic vote. Sorry, Lindsey ... the damage is done. Richard Nixon invented the Southern Strategy to tap into racism and hatred and no amount of Clarence Thomases or Condeleeza Rices or Colin Powells or Herman Cains will ever result in the number of black people voting for Republicans to rise above 5%. It is not so much "revenge" as it is knowing that if someone with that legacy of hate comes to you bearing an olive branch, it is more likely to be used to hit you with.

    The nativist Republican party can't just put Marco Rubio on the national stage or pass immigration reforms and heal this. It is more than just immigration reform ... Republicans also don't care too much about working people or families who might be struggling to make ends meet. Their policies that favor the 1% are simply wrong:  as wrong for minority voters as they are wrong for America.

    Words have meaning. Our words will reflect what is in our souls.
