Where Can I Find the Mexico of Donkey Shows?

[¡Ask a Mexican!] And will Mexicans support Marco Rubio?

DEAR MEXICAN: This question was inspired by the recent video you did on the Republicanos and the Latina/o vote. What's your opinion of Cuban-American and Tea Party cariñito Marco Rubio? All this talk about him as the "Hispanic" savior of the Republican Party by being the vice-presidential nominee is getting to me. Are Latina/o voters ignorant enough to vote for someone as hypocritical as he is about serious issues that conscious gente care about, such as small businesses, poverty, education, health care . . . híjole, I think I'm forgetting one here . . . oh, yeah: IMMIGRATION! This guy is just a vendido who has dollar signs lightening up his cara de tonto. Should progressive Latina/os be concerned about this pretty boy? Estoy precupado, and I can't enjoy my café con pan tostado in the morning with this guy getting closer to the White House.

DEAR WAB: Are you kidding me? Conscious Xicanos such as you and I should be THRILLED at the prospect of Rubio running as the VP on the GOP presidential ticket! Such a move will prove once and para siempre that Republicans only care about Latinos as tokens. How else can you explain the rapid ascendancy of Rubio, a no-name Florida state representative until Tea Partiers embraced him in 2010 during his U.S. Senate run so no one could accuse them of being anti-Latino? He's yet to do anything of any substance in Washington other than read talking points about liberty this and chinga Obama that; if a Reep presidential candidate chose Rubio, it'd obviously be not only to shield himself from anti-Latino accusations ("Look, we have a brownie!"), but also to use the anti-amnesty, anti-DREAM Act coño hypocrite to act as an attack dog against charges of racism ("Our policies aren't racist because our brownie says so!"). Rubio reminds me of PRI presidential candidate Enrique Peña Nieto: Both are pretty boys with caca-eating grins and intellects the size of a black bean who are embarrassments to their proud people but darlings of the 1 percent. Mexi voters will see through the GOP's pendejo and vote for the only presidential candidate who truly has our interests in mind: Alfred E. Neuman.

 

DEAR MEXICAN: I traveled to Juarez to see the Real Mexico, and boy, was I disappointed. Not a single man in white pajamas leaning against a cactus, his donkey by his side. No women with baskets of fruit on their heads. To show how I loved their culture, I mentioned Speedy Gonzales and the Frito Bandito, but people looked at me funny. No one accosted me on the street with "Hey, meestair, for 10 bucks, you can fuck my mother; she's a virgin." Where do I go for a taste of the Real Mexico?

PREORDER TACO USA! Gentle cabrones, my much-promised Taco USA: How Mexican Food Conquered America will finally hit bookstores April 10, but that doesn't mean you can't already order it (yes, grammar snobs, I just used a double-negative, but Mexican Spanish loves double-negatives the way we do cute second cousins). Place your order with your favorite local bookstore, your finer online retailers or your craftier piratas, but place it: My libro editor has already promised to deport me from the publishing industry if we don't sell enough copies! Stay tuned for book-signing info!

I remember that Mexico back in the 1970's. I was still a minor in high school sauntering across the border and taking a cab to Rev Blvd. Good times. Cab drivers trying to sell me pistols and someone else's sister (never their own), beers in little brown bags drinking while you walked, tacos carved right off the head of some cow that had been sitting there for ages, the craziest shows on earth (except maybe the philippines around olongapo) to keep the tourists entertained while the Mexican thugs knocked them out when they went to use the john and stole all their money. I can't call them the good old days but I do remember that Mexico. I left it behind in 84. Had an epiphany, found God, and never looked back. I doubt that Mexico even exists anymore. Vaya con dios'

Hey, Gus, if Rubio's brain is the size of a bean, then your brain, along with all the other liberals, is microscopic, or micro-spic.

HI, Gus, I sent you this question by email but your spam filter blocked my message, so I came to this website and asked it again as a comment to your February 2 Ask a Mexican! column. Still didn't get an answer, so let me try a third time: in what way exactly are Marco Rubio's parents "wabs," as you assert in your Feb 2 Ask A Mexican! column? This is a serious question from a registered voter for whom your answer may become really important come November. Please take it seriously and provide a serious answer.

If you don't want to put the answer in writing, can you tell me when you'll next be at a public forum and I will drive down to ask you in person. Barring that, I could of course ask Rubio himself, telling him you're editor of OC Weekly and therefore a true journalist, but I have a feeling he'll just say he doesn't think you'd met his ancestors and very likely don't know them.

As you can see, this is a really important question for me, as Marco Rubio will be running for president in 2016. I need an answer!

Sincerely,Xoce

Gustavo, Rubio is likely to not only be on the ticket, but also be a future GOP presidential nominee-and given his speaking skills is likely to be inagurated, which will send you totally off the deep end....
