About Secret History

Commentary on Latin America.
Mostly about Mexico - but not always.
Designed to encourage readers to learn about
the apparently "secret history" of 500 million people
spread across two continents
- but not always.
You can always count on a little snark.

The Romney Novela?



How did I miss this take on the Craig Romney ad by Conan O'Brien.  Brilliantly funny.

On another front, we have a reminder of the failure of the GOP to understand the Latino vote outside of the Cuban quarter.  You want ads to appeal to Mexicanos and you run one saying "my grandpa came here from Mexico and got rich" with the subtext being "but you as a person are 'illegal'" - bad form, Big R.
