    Simplisitically lumping muslims together into an evil cabal of "Islamo-facism" probably does wonders for the ratings of Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh. As do xenophobic statements about invasions from Mexico. The us against the evil doers narrative is a great marketing tool. But, it probably won't pay off at the ballot box.

    Wonder where it is we keep 'em? :cool:

    I also wonder how come the left never has to pay the price for treating minorities like children, offering them "candy" in the form of handouts for votes thus perpetuating their dependence on Big Brother.

    Some people just refuse to see the writing on the wall.

    You all probably need to take a remedial american politics class. The total number of muslims don't matter as much as their electoral distribution.

    500,000 Cuban americans in florida commonly dictate who's going to be president.

    And the Senate today is in Democratic hands because of 60,000 muslim american votes in virginia.

    But, by all means: I have no problem if your party becomes the party of angry white men. Keep smearing hispanics and muslim americans. Cheers.

    You need to take a remedial class in reality. You and it don't appear to have much in common.

    Anonymous message board poster, who likes to post threads about lapel pins, Gunny, ways there's no significance to alienating muslims and hispanics.

    Respected pollster John Zoby, and respected Capitol Hill Journal CQ says there is.


    Tough choice. I wonder who I should believe? :eusa_whistle:

    The anti-immigration stance taken by the conservatives will cost the GOP big time in the coming years amongst Hispanics.

    Sure thing, lets just abolish immigration laws all together. Hell lets dismantle border patrol and eliminate guards and inspections at our borders.

    Moron.
