Election 2012

Republican Tokenism

George Will thinks Marco Rubio will solve the party's problems.

"During the Republican nominating process, the party turned first to one person and then to another to try and avoid what turned out to be inevitable. If there's a winner tonight, it's the Senator from Florida, Marco Rubio because all eyes are now going to be turned to him as a man who might have a way to broaden the demographic appeal of this party."

Get it? Rubio is Latino!

Will and other party stooges don't realize that it's the party's ideas that piss off Latinos -- that and, yes, its white supremacist rhetoric, too. But Rubio voted against the DREAM Act and uses words like "illegals." But Will thinks Latinos will ignore the policy and rhetoric and will simply vote for anyone who looks like them. Cynical tokenism.
