I am not a big fan of Mayor Marty Chavez. However, I think he does have a reasonable and respectable policy on immigrants. I feel sympathy for him as the mobile hate truck operated by the Republican Party travels around the city with a billboard on it basically saying that Chavez harbors criminal immigrants in Albuquerque. I saw the truck yesterday as Arturo Sandoval and I sat at lunch in Downtown Albuquerque. The gas guzzling behemoth was cruising around the busy streets that were peopled by our town's potpourri of citizens, tourists and movie set workers. A friend of mine says he sees the truck parked at Republican Party Headquarters at Journal Center when it isn't out adding to global warming.
Has the Republican party reached a point of complete meltdown? Have the decent GOP party members just given up on their radical leaders? Don't they know what is important to people in this state any longer? Is the politics of hate the only issue left open to them? What is next? The Frito Bandito with an assault rifle?
I would think that they should be more concerned with Senator Pete Domenici, Representative Heather Wilson and Representative Steve Pearce being named to the top 22 most corrupt Washington politicians. That is out of 535 Senators and Congressmen!
