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

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

    White Castle would be a perfect location.

        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

      Assuming cedar chez and cakes we like are unavailable.

  • His next fundraiser will be at Taco Bell.

    • Dashboard Buddha

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

  • An_Outhouse

    Karma. How's that work?

    • sewollef

      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

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

    • sullivanst

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

    • Rotundo_

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

  • An_Outhouse

    Are there any non-Mexican restaurants in Phoenix?

    • CrunchyKnee

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

    • CivicHoliday

      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

    • 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

    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.

    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

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

  • Dildeaux

    Dudes hair looks freaky. Oh, wait…

  • Baconzgood

    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

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

    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

    This is nacho fundraising event!

      NACHO ? is he closetted too?

    Aren't there any Cracker Barrels available?

    • tessiee

      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

    " From the Arizona Capitol Times:
    Pearce’s campaign was heartbroken, until they discovered that Mexican restaurants, don't actually serve Mexican ".

  • chascates

    There's a display honoring Arizona's war dead at The Mall in Sierra Valley:

    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

    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

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

  • elviouslyqueer

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

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

    • Guppy

      I'm thinking more Denny's.

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

    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

    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

      With abestos would be a double scoop of irony.

  • didgen

    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

      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

    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.

    He could try looking here:

    "There’s always the lawn chair display area next to the Wal-Mart deli counter."

    Not unless the lawn-chair Americans hear about it.

  • 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.

      Ok,, who ordered the chili con bodily fluid?

      Oh, it's been up for weeks? Well, I am unconscious a good deal of the time.

    • Good to see the community wising up to these fuckers. Now I want to hear that he got on a plane out of state and got a full body cavity search coming and going, from some of the hermanos/hermanas working in TSA.

  • swordfis

    He should be banned from all eating establishments in deference to the other customers' digestions.

    I can't believe the balls on this motherfucker. He got dumped out on his ass in a recall vote in the past year and he's running for office again.
    People don't like you, you old white racist fuckbag. Kindly go off and die.
