Ira Hansen, Your New Favorite Nevada Wingnut, Already Calls It Quits

Goodnight Sweet Dunce
Just after we proclaimed him our favorite new wingnut and looked forward to a 2015 full of brilliantly idiotic quotes and policy positions, Nevada state assemblyman Ira Hansen has announced that he will not become Speaker of the Nevada House of Representatives after all.

Watch President Obama Invite All The Messicans To Destroy America

Actual photograph
President Obama is announcing his plans to unilaterally and unconstitutionally and unpresidentially make a few tweaks to our current immigration clustermess — just like Hitler, Stalin, Insert-your-favorite-dictator-of-choice did. Please note this is supposed to be a super-secret message to Latinos only, so if you’re not one of Them, stop watching immediately. This message is not intended for you.

Incoming Nevada Speaker Ira Hansen Is Your New Favorite Wingnut

Listen: Nevada Republicans are not interested in your “bipartisanship” or your “getting along” or your “logic and facts.” As soon as they took over the state House, they chose as their new Speaker one Ira Hansen, a gentleman who, according to the Reno News & Review, “doesn’t like blacks, gays, Israel, many Republicans, and most Nevadans[.]” Mr. Hansen got a brief mention in Yr Wonkette earlier this year when he explained that the reason Republicans don’t do so well with younger voters is that the GOP needs to be more firmly conservative on traditional marriage, to catch the wave of anti-gay sentiment among young folks.

McConnell, Cruz Prepare For Epic Dick-Measuring Contest

“Come now, be reasonable.” On the Fateful November Tuesday That Shall Not Be Named (the one in 2014, not 2010), Calgary’s own Ted Cruz sat down with Wolf Blitzer and was asked if he’d support Mitch McConnell as the next Senate majority leader. Cruz declined to say, as he’s done since August, mostly because Ted Cruz is pretty sure you don’t even need a majority if you’ve already got the smartest, bestest Sen. Ted Cruz on the market.

Idiot Republican Changes Name, Seems Pretty Sure Latino Voters Don’t Know Cesar Chavez Is Dead

Let’s say you’re a complete unknown in Arizona who failed to win as a write-in Tea Party candidate for Congress in 2012, and then lost a campaign for Phoenix City Council in 2013. Maybe you’d have better luck with some name recognition? So former nobody Scott Fistler legally changed his name to “Cesar Chavez” and is now running as a Democrat to replace retiring congressman Ed Pastor. Can’t possibly go wrong, because your Latino voters are going to see the name of the famous guy on there and figure that after dying in 1993, the activist and civil rights leader has rested up and deserves a seat in Congress. We do have to at least agree that this much of Fistler/Chavez’s story sounds plausible: Fistler’s name change petition, filed last November, said plaintively, “I have experienced many hardships because of my name[.]” No doubt.

Obamacare Reducing Ranks Of Unininsured Already, Probably By Murdering Them

In a result that no one could possibly have predicted, it appears that with three weeks left during the open-enrollment period, Obamacare has already resulted in a reduction in the percentage of Americans who lack health insurance. The Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, released Monday, found that 15.9 percent of U.S. adults are uninsured thus far in 2014, down from 17.1 percent for the last three months — or calendar quarter — of 2013. That translates roughly to 3 million to 4 million people getting coverage. Gallup said the share of Americans who lack coverage is on track to drop to the lowest quarterly level it measured since 2008, before Obama took office. We’re pretty sure that this is a terrible thing somehow, and it’s just a matter of time before the usual crowd explains why. Maybe the death panels are killing these people off!

South Carolina Restaurant To Illegal Aliens: ‘Eat Me’

Hey South Carolina Messican restaurant Taco Cid, what’s got staffers in heelarious uniforms featuring Messicans getting trapped in boxes like animals by aid of a taco lure, are you sorry that everyone in the country except other racists thinks you are balls-out racist? Oh, you’re not? That is so weird, we thought you would say you were sorry “if” you offended anyone. But let’s see what you do have to say for yourselves, because we are sure it is swell and logical and compassionate and well-thought-out, we are sure of it.

Ann Coulter And Sean Hannity Jump On The Latino Moocher Train

AND ANOTHER THING ABOUT THE ELECTION! (This will be your life for the next few days, get used to it.) Here are Ann Coulter and Sean Hannity, giving us THEIR opinions about why the GOP got their ass handed to them on Tuesday, and you will never guess what they have to say. Or maybe you will, because SHOCKER, this is all the fault of the Latinos who want handouts. (Yes, THOSE Latinos, the same ones that the GOP is frantically trying to reach by parading Marco Rubio around.) Also, the fact that Obama is an incumbent president? THAT’s what made it difficult to pry him out of the White House. Romney was a “strong candidate,” but not quite strong enough to unseat an incumbent, because that NEVER happens. (Except to Jimmy Carter and GHW Bush, but never mind that.) See, the country is changing, says Hannity. And it’s changing into a group of people attracted to the “allure of ‘free.'” Read more on Ann Coulter And Sean Hannity Jump On The Latino Moocher Train…

GOP Source: Mitt Romney Threw ‘Tantrum’ At Univision ‘Brownface’ Forum

Oh, man. We were already aware that Egg Romney simply does not care for backtalk from The Help, and that Miffed Romney may not be great under pressure (or ever?). And Miffed Romney hasn’t had a good day we can remember since his Mr. Bean-level disastrous trip to Europe, which spawned the eternal, plaintive question “What about your gaffes?” But FUCK ALL, Buzzfeed has quite a story about Miffed’s trip to see the Mexicans at the Univision forum today, from sources both on the record (a Univision anchor, who detailed the many last-minute demands the campaign made) and off (a GOP source who says Romney threw a “tantrum” and refused to go on). A tantrum, Miffed? In front of people you are not actually paying? BEST. NOMINEE. IN HISTORY. Read more on GOP Source: Mitt Romney Threw ‘Tantrum’ At Univision ‘Brownface’ Forum…

Mitt Romney Dons Brownface For Forum With Mexicans

Mitt Romney saw some Mexicans yesterday, at a Univision forum where he said “Illegal aliens” and all of Twitter got judgmental, as if saying “undocumented immigrants” was going to win Mitt points with his base, who are currently wondering if their hair isn’t going to need washing or their showers grouting come Election Day.

Ronald Reagan’s Other Son Says New Immigration Order Baby-Rapes Latinos

Michael “The Other One” Reagan has an eloquent column out today in “The Cagle Post” and it is so thoughtful and wise! Basically, Barack Nobama is Jerry Sandusky, child-raping Latinos, by changing immigration enforcement priorities for DHS and ICE. Let’s see: blah blah blah “Emperor Obama, Constitution, minions, bureaucrats, swatting pesky flies, Stalin-times-Idi Amin” … yes. Here it is: Now he’s doing to Latinos what Penn State coach Jerry Sandusky allegedly did to the children of Pennsylvania — using and abusing them. With his short-sighted politicking, Emperor Obama has hurt the Latino cause in the long run. Got it, Barack Obama is (ALLEGEDLY!) raping children in their bottoms, by letting them stay in the homes they grew up in so long as they are the world’s best children, have never ever ever been in trouble, and go to either the military or college. You can see how that is totally the same thing! Read more on Ronald Reagan’s Other Son Says New Immigration Order Baby-Rapes Latinos…

Pro-Pot Primary Challenger Harshes Texas Congressman Silvestre Reyes’s Mellow

What was it that that turned the tide for 40-year-old former El Paso councilman Beto O’Rourke, a guero dude in a supermajority Latino Texas district, in his quest to unseat eight-term incumbent and totally cool drug warrior Congressman Silvestre Reyes? Was it the Drug War? Probably. Was it also almost $200 large for TV ads from everybody’s favorite billionaire Cubs owner/embarrassed Rev. Wright chaser Joe Ricketts? That too!

Mitt Romney: If We Can’t Win Latinos, How Did We Win Puerto Rico, HENGHHH?

Mitt Romney, bless his heart, has reached the “delusion” portion of the campaign trail. “Those people who don’t think that Latinos will vote for Republicans need to take a look at Puerto Rico and see there that conservative principles and Latino voters go together,” he said, listing interests Latinos shared with other voters, like jobs. “I intend to become our nominee, and I intend to get Latino voters to vote for a Republican and take back the White House.” Read more on Mitt Romney: If We Can’t Win Latinos, How Did We Win Puerto Rico, HENGHHH?…

East Haven Mayor’s Idea of Latino Outreach Is ‘Eating Some Tacos’

Four East Haven, Connecticut police officers were recently arrested by the FBI for unlawful abuse and search of some of the city’s Latino residents, but Mayor Joe Maturo’s immediate response to the arrests was so heinous as to suggest that maybe the officers had been told to be racist and abusive by a racist and abuse-loving mastermind who barely won the election that put him in his current position. When asked, following the arrests, what he would do to promote Latino outreach, Maturo said, “I might have tacos when I get home.” Well played, powerful Republican man.
