Call me jaded, call me having been watching this Latino political/media game too long, pero there is little that surprises me or makes me gasp especially when it comes to hypocrisy that knows no party boundaries.
First up is Joe ” you lie” Wilson, who after flipping out in Congress over the undocumented getting health care, which thanks to Obama and amigos won’t happen ::sigh of relief::, it was revealed that Wilson helped an undocumented immigrant stay in the U.S.
A second allegedly gasp inducing moment came when Newt Gingrich launched a website for
Latinos err Hispanics. The site, called The Americano is a bilingual website run by Sylvia Garcia, his director of Hispanic outreach and the goal is, to lure Latinos to the GOP and to cash in on Latino Hispanic Heritage Month. I will restate the obvious. Yes, it’s a hypocritical move. You’ll remember that in 2007 Newt said that Spanish was the language of living in the ghetto and now he launched a site that has Spanish. Newt then apologized and now he has seen the light and is using Spanglish, the real language of the ghetto according to some of my detractors. I mean The Americano? Shouldn’t it be el Americano or the American? Pick a language carajo! Some peeps are all caught up on the title, The Americano which translates to the “American”. I guess my question is when Newt speaks of “Americanos” is he using it to mean just people from the U.S. or Latin Americans across the Americas? Maybe Obama can offer some clarification?
Last pero not least, seems like Señor Lou “I’m married to a Latina so I can’t be racist” Dobbs is feeling the heat from the multiple campaigns aimed against him and advertisers that support his show.
Really Lou? A flea? You can’t come up with something more stereotypical, like no se, a cucaracha or something? Keep scratching that picadura Lou.
