I can think of 3 who are running for office that I pray will still be running, but not for office in a couple of weeks: Crist is number one, followed by Grayson and Reid...

I'm being nice. I too have a huge list, starting with my own state, but that is going to happen. For the first time in God know when we will have a Republican senator and 2 or 3 Republican reps out of only 4.

"Hispanic" is used all the time when playing the race card but you already knew that didn't you.

No I didn't know that because Hispanic is not a race. Maybe white supremacists think that way, but I don't.

That's technically correct, Hispanics are either white or black (as in the case of Afro-Cubans for example).. In 1980 the U.S Census started using the Hispanic category. It isn't a race but an ethnic background. Still I say Crist was using the race card even if Hispanic isn't technically a race, he meant it that way. If it makes you more comfortable he was using the ethnic card.
