¡Qué idiota!

Looks like Sen. Fred Thompson (R-Idiota) has the same foot-in-the-mouth disease as his goober supporter, former Sen. George "Macaca" Allen.

The Associated Press reports that Big Fred stuck his celebrity foot in his mouth and compared Cubans to terrorists.

Oops, there goes Florida.

Brilliant Hillary Clinton picked up on it right away and slammed the former senator for his gaffe the first chance she had on the campaign trail. As the gods of good fortune would have it, she was in Florida three days later.
"I was appalled when one of the people running for or about to run for the Republican nomination talked about Cuban refugees as potential terrorists," Clinton told Hispanic elected officials. "Apparently he doesn't have a lot of experience in Florida or anywhere else, and doesn't know a lot of Cuban-Americans."
Thompson last Wednesday told a cheering crowd in Bubba County in South Carolina that something needed to be done about illegal immigration. Why only a couple of years ago, "1,000 people from Cuba" showed up at our shores.

"I don't imagine they're coming here to bring greetings from Castro," the madcap humorist said. "We're living in the era of the suitcase bomb."

Hmmm, let this be a lesson to rabid Cuban-American Republicans just how shallow the party of their allegiance is about well, just about EVERYTHING!

Not that Howling Latina didn't get a chuckle when she learned the Miami folks had gotten their comeuppance and experienced first-hand what it felt like to be treated like them damn "furreign" outsiders.
