Ad Urges Rational Behavior – Politicos in a Snit

"That message has to be denounced, its got to be thrown out," President of the Hispanics in Politics organization, Fernando Romero, says.

"To ask a community, any community to silence their voice as a way to resolve or react during a time when their voice is most needed, is what makes all this reprehensible," Luis Valera of UNLV's Government Relations says.

Anything that gets sociopaths so worked up has got to be good. Those quotes, given to KTNV, are in response to a new ad that encourages rational behavior:

"Don't vote this November. This is the only way to send them a clear message, you can no longer take us for granted, don't vote."

Latinos for Reform, a VA-based group, has made an $80,000 ad buy with that message, set to start Tuesday in Nevada.

"We're saying what a lot of people are feeling. It's the only way for Hispanics to stand up and demand some attention," Robert Deposada, Latinos for Reform's president told Ben Smith of Politico. "I can't ask people to support a Republican candidate who has taken a completely irresponsible and bordering on racist position on immigration."

The ad, shown here in Spanish, and again in an English version that will not air, correctly urges people to change their behavior if they want to see any sort of change.

Predictably, anyone and everyone who has a personal stake in the mechanations of the political class is upset. How dare anyone tell a battered wife her husband's professions of change are just hot air?

Without your vote, Sharron Angle will win, cry the democrats. That's right, says Latinos for Reform, it is your vote, and they haven't earned it.

“The best way to express any anger towards the 28-year incumbent is by going to the polls and voting for Sharron Angle,” say the republicans. You're throwing off one abuse spouse, retorts Latinos for Reform, don't try to find a new one at an anger management course.

“We need legitimacy,” whines the entire political class and the sycophants that surround them. Nothing causes a sociopath more heartburn than ignoring them when they say jump or refusing to dance to their music.

Now, if only the rest of the population would recognize the abuse at the hands of their governmental masters and do something productive that day.

We have a box at the bottom that says: None of the Above. The ad should have recommended that option. It is a fraud in that the candidate with the most votes still gets elected but that will happen anyway.  When the bottom box gets the majority no one can claim a mandate. In fact, I'll bet they will be so embarrassed they will remove the box. At that point people will have to boycott the vote.

Well, that brief flicker of rationality didn't last long:
