One has to be thankful for political analysts and university professors who share with us, mortals, their insight and wisdom about current events. Take Cal Jillson, a political science professor at the Southern Methodist University, who recently was quoted in the press analyzing the fallout of Alberto Gonzales.
“He was a Republican more than he was Hispanic in his adult life,” Mr. Jillson told The Dallas Morning News.
And wait, he’s not alone: apparently a growing number of “analysts” and Latino activists have concluded that Gonzales’ fallout was a matter of ethics not ethnicity, and that it shouldn’t be interpreted as a fallout of the Hispanic community.
Really?? And to think that I had been on the wrong side of the analysis all along, thinking we (Hispanics, Mexicans, Mexican-Americans and people with names like Martinez, Gonzalez or Rodriguez) were all creepy, disgusting politicians.
Well, I also thought Salma Hayek’s engagement to one of the world’s richest men meant all Mexican single women over 40 were destined for a similar future. Oh dear…
