Sharron Angle To Hispanic Students: Some Of You Look Asian To Me
In case you thought the last two weeks of the Nevada Senate race would be gaffe-free, feast on this excerpt of a conversation Sharron Angle had with a classroom of mostly Hispanic High School students:
“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. [Note: it’s the Hispanic Student Union. The whole room is Hispanic teenagers.] What we know, what we know about ourselves is that we are a melting pot in this country. My grandchildren are evidence of that. I’m evidence of that. I’ve been called the first Asian legislator in our Nevada State Assembly.”
As for that last part about Angle being the “first Asian legislator” in the Nevada State Assembly, I have no idea what she’s talking about.
