Why would anyone put Sharron Angle before a group of Hispanic high-school students? Just so she would say something offensive? Yeah, probably. “So that’s what we want is a secure and sovereign nation and, you know, I don’t know that all of you are Latino. Some of you look a little more Asian to me. I don’t know that,” Sharron Angle said, like a smart person. She also said she was “not sure” whether the scary Mexican-looking men in her illegal-immigration ad were Hispanic. This is all okay, because Sharron Angle cannot see color, because she is basically a minority herself: “I’ve been called the first Asian legislator in our Nevada State Assembly.”
Now look at this YouTube video from our friend North Korea and tell us which one of these people is Sharron Angle:
See, you can’t tell! (Sharron Angle is the one all the way on the right, if you were wondering.) This is the whole point. If you can’t tell that Sharron Angle is white just by looking at her (and you CANNOT), race doesn’t exist and therefore we should all just stop concerning ourselves with it.
Meanwhile, Harry Reid made his own dumb comment yesterday, to make sure he didn’t get any sort of poll bounce from Angle’s dumb comment:
In a speech to supporters in Las Vegas on Sunday night, Reid said that when Obama replaced George W. Bush in the White House he found himself in a “hole so deep that he couldn’t see the outside world.
“It was like the Chilean miners, but he, being the man he is, rolled up his sleeves and said ‘I am going to get us out of this hole,'” Reid said
