The 2012 Election on my Facebook Timeline

One of the best things about being silly, is that you tend to attract similar characters to your life (or, in this case, to your Facebook timeline, which is basically the same.)

Here’s a taste of what my stupid creative Facebook friends shared with me on the historic night that Nov. 6th, 2012 turned out to be.

APOLOGIES TO THE MONOLINGUAL CROWD: You have to be bilingual to appreciate this.

So… Romney Got a Fake Tan to Look Like These People?

Unless you live under a tanning bed rock, you’ve surely read by now all about the alleged fake tan sported by Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney at this week’s Meet the Candidate forum on Univision. [Or, as Wonkette put it so appropriately: How Romney donned a brown face “to appear on forum with Mexicans.”

The potential of a ‘spraytanned Romney’ was so hilarious, that many failed to see the irony behind the effort. I think it doesn’t matter if Mr. Romney’s tan was fake or actually real as Univision/ABC later reported. The funniest thing to this blogger is how -with or without a tan- Mr. Romney would have been the darkest of the three people onstage.

Mr. Romney’s advisers would be well advised to watch more Spanish-language TV to see what television Latinos actually look like.

[Watching a telenovela like this one wouldn’t hurt either.]

Romney is NOT Mexican, But He Wouldn’t Mind Univision Spreading the Word Out

As everybody knows by now, Univision’s Jorge Ramos this week sat down with both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney to discuss some issues relevant to the Latino voter, for example, when and how are they going to bomb Cuba and kill the Castros.

However, this blogger’s favorite moment came when Romney denied being Mexican-American, but yet asked Ramos to spread the word out, thinking that little “white lie” would get him ahead among the Latino electorate.

You don’t believe me? Just watch!


Mitt Romney Cares for Hispanic Voters. Visits Conchita Foods to Prove It

Only one thing is more pathetic than a politician campaigning for votes: A Republican politician courting U.S. Hispanic voters.

Watch Romey as he visits South Florida’s Conchita Foods to receive the endorsement of three Cuban-American GOP heavyweights (Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Mario Diaz-Balart and his brother Lincoln Diaz-Balart).

The four amigos might not be in agreement on hot-topic issues like immigration, but I’m sure they all agree Conchita Foods offers some delicious frijoles negros and dry lentejas.
