Arnie's Ethnic "Stereotyping"

Most readers by now have probably heard of the "private" audiotape in which Arnie uses various ethnic stereotypes -- calling Hispanics "hot" and talking about "black blood" etc. Such "stereotyping" (daring to say that all ethnic groups are not exactly the same) normally generates a lot of self-righteous hysteria from the Left but there has been very little of that on this occasion. Why?

Steven Frank knows California back to front and he surely has part of the answer when he notes that the tape was obviously deliberately made by Arnie and deliberately released by him. So did Arnie make the tape just to bait the Left and show what a good guy he is to conservatives? With elections coming up, it looks like it.

Steven Frank has all the details here.
