My Storify mini-rant on what happens if Donald Trump wins the nomination.
Do not fall in love with politicians. They will only break your heart.Read More »
You know what would really shake things up for the Angle campaign? A little push-back against the Press that ends up with a solid hit on Harry Reid. In fact, if she could make this SOP with every little hit piece that comes along, I’d bet she’d see a leap in her numbers.
Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle’s conservative views on illegal immigration and her limited outreach to Hispanics have done little to endear her to Nevada’s largest minority group.
Note here that by “conservative views”, AP writers usually mean having the strange belief that illegal immigration is well … illegal.
Anyway, the whole thing went downhill from there. Given prominent place as a voice for the majority of Nevada Hispanics is one Esperanza Montelongo – a Las Vega Spanish-language political radio show host and Reid supporter, who has this to say;
For me, she [Sharron Angle] is scary … She is anti-anything Latino.
Well, if I were the Angle campaign, I’d have some fun with this and release an ad to take full advantage …
*Note: Don’t actually know their real names and I can’t find them anywhere.
Simple, sharp, effective – and better yet, it puts the MSM on notice that they’re no longer out of range.
PS: I have no compunctions about attributing the “Anti-Anything Latino” statement to the AP – not just their fig leaf i.e. “Esperanza Montelongo” – because they obviously made no effort whatsoever, despite the extreme incendiary nature of the statement, to seek out any opposing views or facts (such as Sharron Angle actually having a Hispanic daughter-in-law) to challenge it. In a supposedly straight news piece, this amounts to a full-throated endorsement.
