    Haha that'd be fun. Except you don't have papers long enough for the idiotic comments of the radical leftists. Your indignation has 0% to do with racism and 100% to do wtih the love of all things liberal democrat.

    Which he also knows what has been in the news with Immigration reform. Going on a local Radio Show doesn't mean he wont get noticed and he knew that also.

    He is a House member.....and even tho Boehner admonished him. I think he should have the mark upon his record so to speak. A reprimand that goes on his public record for all to see.

    Way to reach out to minority voters, GOP. First there was calling any woman who wants birth control to be part of their health plan a slut. Then came the CPAC rant saying Slavery was good for them thar Black folk. Today, they're calling Mexicans derogatory names. All we need next week is someone in the party calling SCOTUS a bunch of Homos after they overturn DOMA.

    But why did all those greedy, lazy, dependent nig minorities vote for Obama? I just don't get it! It must be because they are racists!

    So...for the record...any time a registered democrat acts in any way shape or form like a douchebag...that makes all democrats and their supporters douchebags by your reckoning. Ok then.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner on Friday condemned a reference to migrant workers made by fellow Republican Representative Don Young, calling the comments "offensive and beneath the dignity of the office."

    Boehner issued a statement saying there was "no excuse" for the comments.

    "Congressman Young's remarks were offensive and beneath the dignity of the office he holds. I don't care why he said it - there's no excuse," he said.

    Young, who has spent 40 years in Congress, also is facing a House ethics investigation into possible misuse of campaign funds, failure to report gifts and other offenses. The ethics investigation is similar to an earlier Department of Justice inquiry, which produced no charges.....snip~

    Looks like young is under investigation as well.
    That's a first for Boehner. He usually just keeps his mouth shut when a fellow republican says something stupid. Guess he is trying to win over minorities! Fat chance!

    It gets better ... Dick Morris is helping the GOP make an ad that has Priebus thanking Latinos for all they do for us, including picking our food ... Gracias, mis amigos ... then Rand Paul addresses a group of Latino businessmen and reads them a Pablo Neruda poem (btw, I wonder if Paul knows that Neruda was a communist and advisor to socialist president Allende?) ...

    buena suerte GOP ...

    Dick Morris is a great example of how Politics is really just about following the money. He makes Karl Rove and Sarah Palin look honest.

    GOP Lawmaker Calls Hispanic Workers ‘Wetbacks’

    If they were illegal (or 'unlawful' if you prefer) immigrants, then they were wetbacks. I don't see the problem here or the need for an apology. That's not a racial/ethnic slur.

    but if you're not a GOP fan, Dicky is a godsend, as are Karl and Sarah ... and let's not forget Rush and the body-shuts-down-during-rape guys, and the vaginal probe and voter suppression guys too! The Dems should have a special dinner honoring them.

    I agree. I think Republicans should continue calling Mexican migrants wetbacks...as they should call Blacks n-words and women sluts and gays homos.
