Another Republican tells us how he really feels.

Embattled Bernalillo County Republican Party Chairman Fernando C. de Baca has officially resigned.

The state Republican Party officially reported the resignation in a news release just after 3 p.m. Thursday.

Last weekend, C. de Baca was quoted in a BBC News blog as saying, "The truth is that Hispanics came here as conquerors. African-Americans came here as slaves. ... Hispanics consider themselves above blacks. They won't vote for a black president."

At the rate they're going, hispanic Americans are going to look at hispanic Republicans the way blacks look at black Republicans/conservatives: A little sad and a lot amused.
