Even by my standards, this article in the Wall Street Journal by Steve Goldstein is cynical: it points out that the move by Representative Gutierrez to travel to Virginia and blast Cantor as an obstacle to amnesty is nothing more than a cynical ploy to help Cantor through a tough primary. As Goldstein points out, investors will applaud the cheap labor because the fix is in. He reminds us how close Cantor and Gutierrez have become, and how aggressively Cantor has pushed for some movement on amnesty. And why did Gutierrez make this appearance anyway? I wondered that myself; the timing is too quant. Could it really be that the political establishment has come to view voters with this degree of disdain?
