A Tea Partier at a little protest outside a town hall meeting in Farmington, New Mexico had something to tell his congressman, Rep Ben Luján (D-NM).
Darrel Clark of Farmington said he came for “a chance to see the elusive representative.”
“He needs to get out of politics and make room for an American,” Clark said.
Luján is a lifelong New Mexican. Clark later explained that he meant an “American patriot.”
Well, that makes it all right, then. Because no one in the Tea Party could ever be a racist. No way.
By the way, this being New Mexico, the chances are the Luján family has been in America longer than Mr. Clark’s ancestors.
