Mayor Taco



Someone mentioned this to me yesterday -- the mayor who had some Latino issues to deal with in his city and, when asked what he will do for the Latino community, said, "I might have tacos when I go home." That got him in hot water so he apologized. (Video is in that link.)

But, man, I love his delivery of that line. When he followed it up with "I'm. Not. Quite. Sure. Yet." it was some fine comedic timing. (But you could see him backtracking from that moment on.)

P.S. That reporter needs to remember he ain't working for 60 Minutes. Lighten up big fella.

It disgusts me how everyone thinks they need to be treated "with kid gloves" nowadays. Political Correctness makes me want to throw up. In the beginning, it made some sense. But it has gone wild in application where everyone is always screaming "I've been insulted! I've been insulted!" How many times have you seen the news making a big issue about something that was said, and you were thinking, "Really?".

It's a good thing he didn't say he was going to have chicken and watermelon. Al "Racebait" Sharpton would be doing his live show outside the mayors office with a bullhorn in hand.

Maybe he should have said he was going to have a Margarita at La Bamba's.

Not the best political move for someone to make. As for the TV guy -- well, don't they all want to act like they're on 60 minutes? It's the equivalent of the eight-year-old Pee Wee League football player spiking the ball and doing a dance when he scores, just like he's seen 'em do in the NFL.

I kind of sided with the Mayor ... until I watched the clip. He's a full blown nut. If he had made the joke and then said, hey, I'm just joking, this wouldn't have been a big deal but he went on to try and justify it as a serious comment ... e.g. "I'm Italian, I might go home and have spaghetti tonight." What a goober.

I sure hope Joe Biden doesn't get raked over the coals for trying to mimick an Indian call center rep. He has a D by his name so he is off limits to criticism.

You liberals don't seem to understand the difference between legal and illegle. Why is that so hard to grasp. Just because I want legal immigration does not make me a rascist, it makes me a law abiding citizen. Why is that so hard to understand?
