Lati-NO!

From The Guardian:

One of the fiercest races in next month’s midterm elections has turned ugly, with the Nevada senator Harry Reid accusing his Republican challenger, Sharron Angle, of encouraging a TV advert that tries to persuade Hispanics not to vote.

The Spanish-language ad was pulled from TV stations yesterday following an outcry. It said: “Don’t vote this November. This is the only way to send them a clear message – you can no longer take us for granted.”

Angle’s camp denied any connection to the ad, saying she encouraged as many Nevadans as possible to vote. The ad was placed by Robert de Posoda, president of Latinos for Reform.

Breaking Wind…I Mean News: Huckabee Announces Healthcare Plan for Seniors!

Mike Huckabee, concerned over health care, has revealed how he will restructure Medicare. It seems that all seniors really need is a good poop. From ABC News:

On MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Friday, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee was asked about the fact that former Tennessee Sen. Fred Thompson repeatedly attacked him at Thursday night’s debate.

“I think Fred needs some Metamucil, I think it would help a lot,” Huckabee joked. “He was in a bad mood last night.”
