God! I'm Glad I'm Not a Republican!
If I were a Republican, I'd have to write things like this:
danieldrezner.com :: Daniel W. Drezner :: So how do Mexicans view African-Americans?: While Latinos critics in the United States have their hands full combating discrimination in the Star Wars movies (link via Glenn Reynolds), Latinos south of the border have a slightly bigger problem... dealing with their own racial prejudices.... An intriguing angle about this story is the ability of [Jesse] Jackson and [Al] Sharpton to go global with.... that thing they do (though in this case they have a pretty valid point). Readers are heartily encouraged to predict the next world leader who will be required to mau-mau Jackson and Sharpton for something they say. I think it's a toss-up between Silvio Berlusconi and Vladimir Putin.
