La Bamba Lives!
Small Pleasures: Immigrant-phobic, Minutemen-loving Tom Tancredo - whose 2007 presidential ads charged "aliens" who "froth with hate" with "Pushing Drugs. Raping Kids. Destroying Lives" - arrived

Colorado governor to the tune of "La Bamba," a Mexican folk song by the
late great Ritchie Valens, born Ricardo Esteban Valenzuela Reyes. From a TPM reader.
