Ha Ha, Leading Arizona Mexican-Hater Wingnut Kicked Out of Mexican Eateries

by Kirsten Boyd Johnson

No idea what's going on with that hair.

Top Arizona horse’s ass Russell Pearce, the former state Senator known for his awkward testicle jokes and his authorship of the state’s anti-immigration law that codified higher levels of skin pigmentation as a form of suspicious behavior, was rejected by two Mexican restaurants in Phoenix upon trying to hold a fundraiser at each to help get himself back into office. That is correct: He wanted to stage an event, to collect money for himself, in a Mexican dining establishment. And yet it turned out not to be the most foolproof way of gloating.

Pearce was thwarted by, yes, the Tequila Party, the humorous Arizona Latino voter response to the constipated sourpuss Tea Party. Tequila Party co-president DeeDee Garcia Blase got wind of Pearce’s fundraiser and planned a protest of the first Mexican restaurant where Pearce had planned his event. The restaurant quickly cancelled the booking. So he tried again at another Mexican restaurant.

From the Arizona Capitol Times:

Late this morning, Pearce’s campaign sent an email to supporters informing them that the fundraiser would instead be held at Oaxaca Restaurante y Cantina in downtown Phoenix. The email did not say why the location was changed.

Within hours, Oaxaca also cancelled Pearce’s event. Joseph Aguayo, the restaurant’s manager, told Arizona Capitol Times he did so after Garcia Blase contacted him and told him the event, which was registered under a different name, was actually to help Pearce raise money in his bid to return to the Senate after being recalled last year.

“We don’t need that,” Aguayo said. “We want to keep the support of our Latino community.”

Oh well, Russell. There’s always the lawn chair display area next to the Wal-Mart deli counter. [AZ Capitol Times]

Arizona's top horse's ass competition must be a photo finish of many.

anniegetyerfun June 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

Seriously, are we certain that he is worthy of this title? There must be so many others.

sharethegrief June 15, 2012 at 9:38 am

White Castle would be a perfect location.

ManchuCandidate June 15, 2012 at 9:44 am

Appleby's!

elviouslyqueer June 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

Feeling good in the neighborhood barrio, yo!

Appleby? He's got flies in his eyes.

sharethegrief June 15, 2012 at 11:20 am

Exactly. My husband and I are conflicted. We're having problems with our next door neighbor. He's an asshole but he's white.

tessiee June 15, 2012 at 12:33 pm

Assuming cedar chez and cakes we like are unavailable.

Chill_Bill June 15, 2012 at 9:39 am

His next fundraiser will be at Taco Bell.

Dashboard Buddha June 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

Too late. The Taco Bell chihuahua has already shit on his lawn in protest.

An_Outhouse June 15, 2012 at 9:40 am

Karma. How's that work?

sewollef June 15, 2012 at 12:21 pm

Dunno how it works, but I know how it feels. All warm and fuzzy…. and a nice sunny Friday to go along with it.

All I need now is a nice glass of chilled Marsanne and I'm a very happy puppy.

tessiee June 15, 2012 at 12:36 pm

Slowly, sometimes very slowly indeed, but it does work.

ManchuCandidate June 15, 2012 at 9:41 am

He'll drown his sorrows in Tequila and Dos Equis XXX beer.

sullivanst June 15, 2012 at 10:17 am

How much tequila do you need to turn Dos Equis into Tres Equis?

Rotundo_ June 15, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Tres Equis must be when they run it through the horse a third time…

An_Outhouse June 15, 2012 at 9:42 am

Are there any non-Mexican restaurants in Phoenix?

CrunchyKnee June 15, 2012 at 9:47 am

There should be, Phoenix certainly has its share of small minded pointy headed rednecks.

CivicHoliday June 15, 2012 at 10:04 am

Every typical chain you'd find in every white suburban community in America is there. White folks don't mess around – they get pissy when denied their Bob Evans

FlownOver June 15, 2012 at 4:22 pm

There's El Rey de las Hamburguesas on every other block, but all their signs have been changed to comply with the Official Language laws.

Dr. Nick Riviera June 15, 2012 at 9:43 am

I'd say he should go to Taco Bell but the high cardboard content might be a little spicy for his delicate sensibilities.

For you, and the Wonkette, I will go to Atlantic City, on one of those buses that crash all the time.

Guppy June 15, 2012 at 10:11 am

Now there's trouble bussin' in from outta state…

prommie June 15, 2012 at 10:45 am

Just think of the lawsuit you'd have! You could retire, like the guy in Office Space!

Boojum June 15, 2012 at 10:06 am

No, Atlanta!

elviouslyqueer June 15, 2012 at 10:41 am

Tell you what. We'll meet in the middle… say, Birmingham?

HAHAHA, I kid. Like I'd be caught dead in East Mississippi.

qwerty42 June 15, 2012 at 12:02 pm

What about Athens? Plenty of commies, and they like to drink.

Can't imagine anyone in their left minds wanting to head in this direction until October or so. Portland sounds lovely, but far.

And here I thought the kicker of this story was going to be that he had lost the previous election to a neo-natzi and was actually the better candidate.

You did say Arizona.

elburritodeluxe June 15, 2012 at 9:45 am

I was on the fence about attending the Pearce fundraiser, but then I heard they were holding it at a Caucasian restaurant!

Dildeaux June 15, 2012 at 9:45 am

Dudes hair looks freaky. Oh, wait…

Baconzgood June 15, 2012 at 9:48 am

This is why I don't slam spicks. I'd hate not to be able to go to a wet back diner and get 3 hard and 3 soft shell tacos. Those people are touchy.

(I'm just joking many of my clients are mexican please don't beat me up)

neiltheblaze June 15, 2012 at 9:49 am

There's always the chaps and leather bar down the street. That might work.

anniegetyerfun June 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

Another Republican just starting a campaign in order to look for sexual partners?

arihaya June 15, 2012 at 9:49 am

The Tequila Party? Brilliant, too bad it is apparently Republican or I would join. On the other hand, if there was a margarita party, I'd be happy to join, particularly as I have nothing to do tonight.

CapnRadio June 15, 2012 at 9:52 am

This is nacho fundraising event!

arihaya June 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

NACHO ? is he closetted too?

Terry June 15, 2012 at 9:52 am

Aren't there any Cracker Barrels available?

tessiee June 15, 2012 at 12:41 pm

In Cracker Barrel's defense, they did just get some sort of award from the Humane Society for not doing…
whatever it is the bad guys were doing to pregnant pigs…
so there's that.

[They don't have Cracker Barrel here that I've ever seen, so I have no opinions either for or against them]

Antispandex June 15, 2012 at 9:53 am

" From the Arizona Capitol Times:

chascates June 15, 2012 at 9:54 am

There's a display honoring Arizona's war dead at The Mall in Sierra Valley: http://www.svherald.com/content/news/2012/06/14/2

That would be perfect for him. It's right by the entrance to Sears.

The display was escorted by Patriot Guard Riders, an organization of various military service and other biker groups…part of the nonprofit Patriotic Productions, will be open to the public from noon Thursday through noon June 25.

Chichikovovich June 15, 2012 at 9:55 am

A minor speedbump. Pearce just needs to find a venue that won't mind losing every single Hispanic customer. I bet there are lots of businesses in Arizona that are OK with writing off almost 30% of the population.

fawkedifiknow June 15, 2012 at 9:56 am

Most sentient people would have taken the first hint. This explains a lot.

elviouslyqueer June 15, 2012 at 9:57 am

Judging from Pearce's pic, the only party that he's likely to be affiliated with is the Lemon Party.

Doktor Zoom June 15, 2012 at 10:21 am

"It's not a Lemon party without old Dick!"

Doesn't he know that his supporters would much rather go to an Olive Garden anyway?

Guppy June 15, 2012 at 10:13 am

I'm thinking more Denny's.

Or, more likely, a Sam's Club food court.

He can hold the fundraiser in my Mexican restaurant. The house special tonight is Crushed Scrotum Fajitas.

Doktor Zoom June 15, 2012 at 10:15 am

The White Citizens' Defense Fund is suing for this violation of Pearce's civil rights. "If we have to let 'em in our restaurants, they got have to let us in theirs," said a spokesman from the front of a city bus.

Doktor Zoom June 15, 2012 at 10:19 am

Representatives for the National Center for Irony, which burned to the ground last fall when Herman Cain said "Stupid people are ruining America," received this news with pleasure, and announced plans to rebuild with a new wing devoted to Arizona, Florida, and the Carolinas. The structure is expected to be heavily reinforced.

OurDailyBread June 15, 2012 at 10:45 am

With abestos would be a double scoop of irony.

didgen June 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

I continue to be amazed at the density of Republicans. They cannot understand why anyone would have a problem with their racist, uncaring activities. Of course a Mexican restaurant should jump for joy for this son of an iguana's business. After all, it's nothing personal.

WIDTAP June 15, 2012 at 10:30 am

Well, the whole "if you protest my political positions, that is a threat of violence" meme should give you a hint of the altered reality they are living in.

Poindexter718 June 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

In some ways this is unfortunate; I'm sure his supporters would have enjoyed their Tacos al Lugey and the house special Micheladas made from busboy pee.

Almost a shame the fundraiser was cancelled. The immigrants in the kitchen staff (documented and non) could have had fun with the entrees going to the head table.

I bet Hans' Haus of Swastikas would welcome his fundraiser.

Hmmmm. Being the kind of guy I am, I would have considered hosting the event. The condiments, toppings and "spices" would make Clarence Thomas blush.
