Republican National Committee Hispanic Media Communications Director Izzy Santa

Woo Hoo! So we finally meet the brain-trust who is the actual Republican in charge of Hispanic Outreach and the first thing we know about him is that he's coined an stupid portmanteau that some people are looking at askance.

Now we just need the Republican in charge of Outreach to Female-Americans to use the term "mansplain" in dead earnest and we can call it a day.

/Bad Santa is bad.

Christ what a bunch of brainless pricks
 
2014-07-31 12:29:44 PM
They really do have a steeeeeeeeeeeeeeep learning curve, don't they?
 
2014-07-31 12:41:31 PM
That's some robust outreach
 
2014-07-31 12:42:48 PM
Prejudiced?  Seems more condescending than prejudiced.  Not that "condescending" is how I'd like my outreach PR program to be summed up, but perhaps I'm just splitting hairs.

I don't think that word applies.

I think they need to tardsplain "hispandering" better to the rubes.

Sure it does.  He trusted his brain to someone else.

/and they failed at their job.

That's going to cause a hispanic.

Hey, wait a second...

Santa accused Hillary Clinton of doing it too.

I guess someone will be getting a lump of coal come Christmas.

/Is Hickpandering a word?

Agreed. I add it's a last resort to fauxtrage about such things. Sometimes a spade is just a spade.

The current kerfuffle over "hispandering" started this summer when Republican National Committee Hispanic Media Communications Director Izzy Santa accused Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley of doing it in a recent string of public comments.

Santa accused Hillary Clinton of doing it too.



Uh oh, Hillary is going on Santa's naughty list.

/Kind of what I would expect from an old fat white guy, though.

Are you saying that a man who panders to the Hispanic community for a living getting mad at Dems for doing much the same thing is not the brightest bulb on the tree?

I think you might be on to something.
 
2014-07-31 01:23:46 PM
I just want to say I live in DC and have never before heard that "word"
 
2014-07-31 01:29:34 PM
That's hispterical. Amidoingitright?
 
2014-07-31 01:35:46 PM
So long as they devote equal time to herpandering, I fail to see what the problem is.
 
2014-07-31 01:47:51 PM
Hi. I want you to know that I really don't think of you as part of our base.

A bunch of white people sitting around debating if "hispandering" is offensive is just idle spiculation anyway.

DrBenway: Approves.

RepubliCAN'T.... The party of NO

nmrsnr: I just want to say I live in DC and have never before heard that "word"


My guess is that it's probably one of those words normally saved for dinner parties where there's a copy of Going Rogue proudly displayed on the coffee table.

"Border Militia won't pander to cantaloupe-calves!"

Not that steep, it's just that at that weight the hoveround doesn't have enough power to get up it.

What a hispanda might look like
 
2014-07-31 03:46:41 PM
I'm Hispanic and I don't find it offensive.  No way in hell the GOP is going to get my vote unless they spend a few years purging out the racists and xenophobes, renounce prosperity gospel, embrace science, education and marriage equa-- OK, fark it, they're never getting my vote.

BUT, I don't think "hispandering" is an offensive term.  Slightly politically incorrect, and easy to misuse (fully expect them to do so), but not inherently racist.

She's not a man, but the rest of your statements apply.

so the white folks are going to pretend that they don't think the brown folks should be cleaning, cooking or working construction

How much of a chance is there?
 
2014-07-31 03:58:18 PM
hispandering  sounds like hooking up with a latino in a questionable way

Example, Rush Limbaugh hispandered his way through the Dominican Republic a few years ago
 
2014-07-31 04:05:22 PM
FTFASanta accused Hillary Clinton of doing it too.

Well that's a fun sentence.
 
2014-07-31 04:06:40 PM
What?! You mean naming Alberto Gonazales Attorney General didn't just win all the Hispanic votes?!

Actually very much so.
 
2014-07-31 04:07:53 PM
I guess this is better than the GOPs attempts at vagindering.

I think that's more of a thing in the UK where they have a lot more people of Pakistani background living than in the US.

I don't think he is.

Stupid GOP and Democrats. They don't realize La Raza is going all whitey.

There's rise in the numbers of Hispanics who used to claim being Hispanic and are now claiming to be White.

The GOP especially should unbutton their shirts and use their pasty, t-shirt tanned pudginess to wave in the loitering Hispanics.
 
2014-07-31 04:17:29 PM
Hispanic: Of Spanish (as in "from Spain" or other region of the Iberian Peninsula)

Latino: Of Latin American

Chicano: American of Mexican descent

Dear GOP, even the title of your outreach program is offensive.

I think I see what you did there...
 
2014-07-31 04:20:38 PM
I hear it happens a lot around the Hispanhandle area
 
2014-07-31 04:21:57 PM
Again at what point do we just kick the Republicans out of office?

Why are they gaining seats and possibly the Senate?
 
2014-07-31 04:25:26 PM
Just waiting for their hoatreach drive to gain momentum, not to mention their slutandering initiative.
