Asians Are Almost Hispanics and Ladies' Hair Loss Can Be Ceased and Other True Truths from the RNC

A Republican effort to reach out to Hispanic voters got off to a, umm, hairy start when its Spanish-language site featured a stock photo of Asian kids - because, truthfully now, don't all these brown-skinned folks look remarkably, confoundingly alike? -  and a blog post titled, "How to cease locks the loss in ladies - suggested ways." When these errors were albeit ungently noted by some in the media, the RNC, exhibiting admirable competence, corrected them. Now the site features a survey that asks the likely two and a half Hispanic Republican voters to check off, "Yes! I'd like to be part of the RNC Victory 2012 and would be interesting in one or more of the Victory activities" and asks them to "Make phone calls from home on key issues or get out of the vote activities." Gosh, we can't wait to have these people run our fine country.
