We've got more news on the Republican path to political oblivion: Sen. Marco Rubio will deliver the response to President Obama's State of the Union address next Tuesday, in both English and Spanish. Obviously a way to pander to Hispanic voters without actually doing anything for them, this reminds of the GOP's Sarah Palin syndrome. People aren't dumb - we don't vote for chromosomal likeness, nor for linguistic commonality. We vote values. The Republican party's current policy position on working people, people of color, minorities and women - F*ck you - sounds pretty bad regardless of the language used to say it.
