Republican Conversation With Latina

(4 pm. – promoted by ek hornbeck)

Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA), the highest ranked House Republican woman, said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that Republicans need to become more “modern” but not “moderate.”

“I don’t think it’s about the Republican Party needing to become more moderate; I really believe it’s the Republican Party becoming more modern,” she said. “And whether it’s Hispanics, whether it’s women, whether it’s young people, the Republican Party has to make it a priority to take our values, to take our vision to every corner of this country.”

“I think it’s more about the messenger and who’s communicating our values to every corner of this country.”


I can see it all now:

Cathy Rodgers to young Latina: ¿Cómo te va, señorita? Estoy aprendiendo español y no lo habla bien. ¿Le gustaría convertirse en un republicano?

Senorita: Hueles mal, perra. Váyase.

Ms. Rodgers:  Gracias.  I am sure Sen. Rubio will be happy to translate for me.  Some of the words don’t seem to be in my Republican Spanish Dictionary.

My unauthorized translation of senorita: [You stink, bitch. Go away.]

I suspect a Mormon missionary would have better luck with that conversion thing.

Best,  Terry

    their ethnic vote. Angry white males and their subservient wives won’t cut it in the future except in specific localities.

    The Mexican banditos are about to do in the heroes when the U.S. Cavalry arrives.

    The head honcho of the banditos smiles broadly and says:

    We love gringos.

    My guess is the American banditos known as Republicans will stay what they have been my whole life.

    Could be wrong.

    Remember, the Rs were the party of Lincoln at one time. They’ve had a checkered past–but they haven’t, until recent years, actually been a political party that wanted to actually do harm to the union and have morphed into a neo-confederate political party. They seek to increase division, weaken the social contract and advocate for political chaos by stirring up the ignorant by presenting a segment of the public with a relentless and robust web of propaganda that endlessly expands our social/cultural divisions. They’ll just have to be a bit more inclusive in their propaganda efforts in the next few years.

    in our history.

    Teddy Roosevelt’s Bull Moose Party is the ancestor of all the Progressive parties that remain in existence and still elect local officials – primarily in Vermont these days.

    The usurpation of the Progressive label even by liberals is rather offensive to those with any sense of history or language.

    The Democrats were also the party of Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond once as well as almost the entirety of the segregationist South.

    That was then and this is now.

    Best,  Terry
