Mmm, yes, but there are ways of telling it that can be twisted and used against you, and ways of telling it that cut off the knees of the enemy.

Well, why aren't you doing it then?

Evidently you could save us if you tried.

Richwine’s thesis was written well before he joined Heritage. If they thought it would be a liability, they should not have hired him in the first place.

Very important point...

Is the assertion about immigrants having lower IQs factually incorrect, or do people just not want to hear it because it’s politically incorrect?

That is the question, isn't it?

I am not an employee of the Heritage Foundation, which is their loss. They tend to hire starchy Ivy Leaguers.

So DeMint threw Richwine under the bus?

Truth and politics do not mix.

Richwine spoke an “inconvenient truth”, therefore he must pay the penalty.

Liberals like to talk about speaking truth to power. Richwine’s defenestration was an example of the establishment’s speaking power to truth.

I wouldn’t be surprised if he did choose to leave on his own. If he is principled and believes what he’s written (which I’m sure he does) he also realizes that the controversy is nothing but a distraction to benefit the left and he wouldn’t want to be part of that distraction any more than he already is.

With that logic, Heritage might as well give up as the Amnesty forces demonizes anyone who disagrees with them. Sen Lindsay Graham made a promise to La Raza to "shut those bigots up" and bigots are anyone who oppose amnesty.

Immigrant rights activists are upset over this? Really. All the janitors, dishwashers, car wash attendants, and fry cooks I see in my area are all of these gifted Mexican and Central American whiz kids. Please. Reality check here. We’re the dumping ground for half-literate and low-skilled individuals from those countries.
