Those racist repugs

"We don't want (Hispanics) to become the new African-American community," Lima told The Associated Press. "And that's what the Democratic Party is going to do to them, create more programs and give them handouts, food stamps and checks for this and checks for that. We don't want that."

"I'm very much afraid that the Democratic Party is going to do the same thing that they did with the African-American culture and make them all dependent on the government and we don't want that."
This from Didi Lima, Clark County GOP Communications director in McCain's Nevada campaign.

Of course damage control was immediately enacted and she was let go.

Full article from the Las Vegas Sun.

This is the second person in Republican Party to be removed from campaign activities due to racist remarks.
The chairman of the Republican Party in New Mexico's most populous county resigned Thursday, nearly a week after saying "Hispanics consider themselves above blacks" and won't vote for Obama.
Keep on playing the race card and see where it gets you.
