CALPUNDIT GETS RESULTS!….Hey, I write an email to Ted Barlow and a couple of days later he’s back to blogging! I wish I could affect the real world that well.

Anyway, Ted has joined the Crooked Timber gang, and his first post there is a long takedown of the absurd MEChA baiting recently invented by desperate right wingers afraid that Cruz Bustamante might win the recall election. Go read it.

I might add that although I never had any dealings with MEChA in college, my high school was about 50% Hispanic and I remember that the MEChA chapter there was absorbed in such subversive activities as holding car washes, running after school programs at the local elementary schools, and raising money for the football team. Pretty tough crowd.
