Everything You Know Is Wrong

In the words of Mike, zuh?
First, though, [former TV personality Lou] Dobbs is working to repair what a spokesman conceded is a glaring flaw: His reputation for antipathy toward Latino immigrants. In a little-noticed interview Friday, Mr. Dobbs told Spanish-language network Telemundo he now supports a plan to legalize millions of undocumented workers, a stance he long lambasted as an unfair "amnesty."
OK, what? Word has it that Dobbs wants to run for the Senate in New Jersey, which would involve his campaigning against the Senate's lone Hispanic member, Robert Menendez (D), but wow. Talk about a transparently political 180. This is a guy who was accusing illegal Latino immigrants of spreading crime and leprosy everywhere they went barely three months ago, and now he's a champion of a path to legalization for millions of undocumented workers? WTF?

I saw a blurb about that in the Houston Chronicle last week, and "Zuh?" was pretty much my reaction.

I can assure you the number of hispanics who are naturalized citizens that support legalization of illegals is nowhere near plurality status. So before you go on about legalization being pro-hispanic voter, check your faulty logic.

And, yes, I do have hispanic blood in my veins.

Did Jeff actually claim otherwise somewhere in this post?

John, on what planet is 89% support for legalization (PDF) not a plurality? (scroll down a bit - top of second page)
