Sharron Angle has Not Only Offended Hispanic Children but All Hispanic Icons the World Over

As the storm rages around Republican Senatorial candidate Sharron Angle’s comments other Hispanic super stars are joining in on the debate, see below.  The controversy started when Angle visited the Rancho High School that is predominantly Hispanic.  These sharp students questioned Angle on her perceived anti-immigrant rhetoric especially her depiction of a Hispanic man standing before a fence implying all Hispanics had crossed the ‘border fence’ illegally.  She denied that was her intent in the ad and defended herself by saying that man wasn’t necessarily a Latino man.  Clearly implying she can’t distinguish a Latino person from their outwardly appearance to prove her point she made comments that have now gotten her in trouble with some Hispanics. 

She stated to the students “I don’t know if all of you are Latinos, some of you look you know a little more Asian to me .”  We are not sure what a ‘little Asian’ means or if its worse than being a little Latino.  Hispanic super stars like the Frito Bandito, Speedy Gonzales and our iconic Dora the Explorer are revolting and may show up in Nevada and give Harry Reid, the incumbent and Angle’s opponent their vote.
