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):
So, a tea party activist in NTexas describing the Wendy Davis-Leticia Van de Putte ticket as "Abortion Barbie" and "Barrio Boopsie" How nice— Wayne Slater (@WayneSlater) November 16, 2013
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.
