In Latina Magazine: Election 2012: Forever Young, or Not

Desencanto–the profound disillusionment we feel when someone lets us down, when innocence is lost, when the rose-colored glasses or beer googles are yanked off.  Latinos have felt this way about President Barack Obama for a while, as I have extensively written, beginning with The Gran Desencanto. Now the youth vote isn’t feeling the love.  It’s no […]

In Latina Magazine: Election 2012: Can the Republican Party Become a “Latino” Party?

The Wise Latina Club's Viviana Hurtado asks in Latina Magazine if the Republican Party can become "Latino"

I was chatting with #TwitterBrotherFromAnotherMother since we may be teaming up on a voter registration drive/civic engagement effort and we got to talking about the big elefante político in the Election 2012 room.

I swear, it’s Idol for the Dweeb set–you know the ones who didn’t go to prom (ahem, unless Big Bro strong-armed his B-F-F–El Peruano–to go with you to the dance clad in cotton candy-my-dress-was-that-pink-and-grande). The Arizona Republican debate proved that although primary Republicans voters still won’t ask Mitt Romney to the prom–be their Presidential nominee, he’s a […]
