We should have known that the Lipton Brigade was going to regress and uncivilize the country the moment those tea bags landed on the tacky tricorns.
Complete with tags. A horde of braying Minnie Pearls. With fully loaded strap-ons.
An evil-genius Arizona House candidate in Phoenix has chosen to change strategies, parties -- and his name -- to Cesar Chavez, in desperate hopes of just getting elected in our modern Hee Haw Nation. Arizona Tea Partier Scott Fistler decided he needed a hopey-changey transformation. He's fixing to be a Democrat.
Wonkette gave the idiot their unique full Monty.
Still, New Chavez guy tells the Arizona Republic, he’s a totally legit guy:
“It’s almost as simple as saying Elvis Presley is running for president,” Chavez, the candidate, said in a phone interview. “You wouldn’t forget it, would you?” […]
“People want a name that they can feel comfortable with,” Chavez said. “If you went out there running for office and your name was Bernie Madoff, you’d probably be screwed.”
Some weeks Dems are just relieved that Ted Kennedy passed before he could witness the devolution of politics as we knew it before Glenn Beck, Batshite Bachmann and the ditzy doyenne of the North, Sarah Palin, hijacked civility and bipartisanship as we knew it. Fistler seems perfect for Arizona.
Also, too, he didn’t want to say, one way or the other, whether he’s as Hispanic as his name: “I like to look at people as Americans and citizens of the world."
Lipton Brigade Texas and Arizona are a breed apart. It was a sobering moment last month to see a fun-loving civilian knocking back a shake at Sonic with an AK-47 slung over his dress tee shirt. And a Dem to boot!

Just wanted to make sure you were listening. No, we liberals react to that improbable scenario with REASON. Good, actionable, Not One More style reason. Dems just don't feel that same need to arm themselves to confront a hostile double cheese-burger.
Or, for that matter, change their legal name to a liberal hero in order to gain a few non-white votes.
Si se puede for us all.
