Can't Live With 'Em, Can't Live Without 'Em

The LA Times' Cathleen Decker has written a thoughtful article that presents the controversy over Meg Whitman's housekeeper in the light of Californians' deep ambivalence about immigration. The whole article's great. As for the political risk to Whitman, Decker writes:
The biggest danger, many said, was that voters might accept that she was duped by her housekeeper but also object to how Whitman treated the woman. That too would be completely in line with a populace that can love the illegal immigrant but disdain illegal immigration.
