DID - Dissociative Identity Disorder?*
*Multiple distinct identities or personalities -- John McCain?
|Lou Dobbs Tonight -- CNN -- June 20
Dobbs: This meeting, the McCain campaign objecting to the reports that it was secret. Was it secret?
Pulido: It was private. It was a private meeting.
Dobbs: Right. And who, who was there? What group, what umbrella?
Pulido: Well, the Republican Hispanic Assembly was one of the sponsors of it. And there was a lot of different people including Illinois State Senator Martin Sandoval, who I know to be a Democrat.
Dobbs: Right. And what did the senator say? I mean, what is the point of this meeting? He had said to us all, for months that, he had learned, one thing in the campaign and that was border security first. In this meeting he said something quite differently, apparently?
Pulido: That's correct. I was hopeful hearing that John McCain got it one day he got it that we want enforcement first. And so I was hopeful going to the meeting, but all I heard was the mantra was comprehensive immigration reform. That to me as an illegal immigration activist is a code word for amnesty. The crowd cheered every time he mentioned those words, those code words. And he also made a statement that did you know that Spanish was the first language spoken in my home state of Arizona before English. The crowd went crazy.
Dobbs: You know the senator is absolutely wrong. Spanish was not the first language spoken in the state of Arizona. In point of fact there were a host of Indian dialects, Native American dialects spoken there for hundreds of years before there was any Spanish spoken in Arizona, so somebody needs to counsel the good senator when he is pandering to ethnocentric interest groups.
