If not, I predict Fox or someone like Murdoch will start one (or more) soon.

I know they focused for a long time on the "speak English" issue, but Rubio did not adhere to it last night and probably have given a lot of other speeches en espanol in Florida in his time.

I think Republicans would be willing to trade that one to win points with the largest single voting minority bloc in the country.

Also, just as Obama's election in 2008 dramatically increased the number of African American pundits and "strategists" on TV, I also think we are going to start seeing more and more Latino Americans doing those jobs. (A very good thing from the equal opportunity perspective, IMO, but not so good from the shameless pandering perspective.)

After all, the Daily Show already hired one a while back. ;)

2. Have you ever read the wiki of Obama's FCC chief?
Among other things,

He was Chief of Business Operations and a member of Barry Diller's Office of the Chairperson at IAC/InterActiveCorp and executive responsible for the creation of Fox Broadcasting Company and USA Broadcasting. He earned at least $2.5 million when Vivendi acquired Universal assets in 2003.<10> He had previously served on the Boards of Directors of Expedia, Hotels.com, and Ticketmaster.<5>

3. I try not to think about
what inspires the President to appoint this sort of person. Like I said before, is the President completely ignorant of history?

4. Ignorance of history does not explain his appointments.

5. It would explain
the lack of due diligence in keeping a certain type of right wing zealot from the reins of government.

6. I'm pretty sure his advisors have access to wiki.
Usually, wikis get scrubbed before a name is floated.

Bernard Kerik syndrome.
