Note: HLN doesn't appear to be linked to the similarly-named Hispanic Leadership Fund.
A new and almost entirely worthless controversy involves Barack Obama's campaign manager Jim Messina tweeting a comment about chimichangas. No, really. But, it's not entirely worthless: I'll tell you below some of the things you won't hear from either side.
