Nice to see that she’s not going to pretend for the sake of a largely imaginary ‘comity’ (defined as ‘A Republican smiling when a Democrat says something vile about him or her’):
“The real tragedy here is Nicky. After Nov. 2, no one’s going to be watching out for Nicky Diaz. And Jerry, you know you should be ashamed, you and your surrogates … put her deportation at risk. You put it out there and you should be ashamed for sacrificing Nicky Diaz on the altar of your political ambitions.”
Mind you, Jerry Brown is as unacquainted with shame as he is courage: he wants to be Governor of California, and that would be worth any number of Nicky Diazs. Besides, it’s her own fault, really: if Nicky Diaz wanted to be treated as an actual human being by the Californian Democratic establishment then she should have arranged matters so that she had been born an Anglo.
