And the GOP's Hispanic outreach program founders on....

From Texas, and coinciding with the depolorable "Catch an Illegal Immigrant" stunt by the Young Conservatives of Texas at UT Austin (which, thankfully, was ultimately canceled):

The Tea Partier in question was McKinney Tea Party blogger Rick Atkinson. He runs a regular column Dallas Morning News Exposed, in which he tries to present the DMN (or as he calls it, the Dallas Morning New Kos or the Dallas Marxist Messenger) and especially Slater as the voice of the ultra-left. He had already leaped on the bandwagon of calling Sen. Wendy Davis, D-Fort Worth, "Abortion Barbie." Now he has decided to pioneer another insult, this time for Van de Putte.
Barrio Boopsie? Barrio Boopsie?  Really? Really??  Sen. Leticia Van de Putte is Barrio Boopsie.

The tea party simply has no mentality for governing.

They wallow in their racial slurs, their misogyny, and their vicious attacks on anyone who dares to publicly voice an opinion that challenges their extremist worldview.   Sit down and SHUT UP - especially if you are a woman or a minority.  American Taliban through and through.

Let's Turn Texas Blue.  Support Wendy Davis for Governor.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
