Arizona Pol: Middle Easterners Look Like Mexicans And Don't Belong Here "Legally Or Illegally"

saucedomercer.jpg
This is Gabriela Saucedo Mercer. She's running for Congress in Arizona. She also thinks Middle Easterners look like Mexicans and she doesn't want them in the U.S.

Arizona is known for a few things: the Grand Canyon, its beautiful sunsets...and for having some of the dopiest, gun-loving, hillbilly politicians in the entire country.

Enter Arizona Congressional candidate Gabriela Saucedo Mercer, who said in a recent interview that A) Middle Easterners look like Mexicans, and B) she doesn't want them in the country "legally or illegally."

Even worse: there's video -- which you can see below.

Saucedo Mercer, a Hispanic immigrant who became a citizen in 1991, has the backing of the Tea Party and the state's foot-in-mouth governor, GED Jan Brewer.


You'd think blatantly racist comments would put an end to a Congressional campaign. Not in Arizona -- Saucedo Mercer handily won her GOP primary last night and stands a decent chance at beating her Democratic opponent, Congressman Raul Grijalva, who once called for the boycott of his own state, and isn't the most popular congressman out there in Sand Land.

(Sigh).

Without further ado, watch Saucedo Mercer say she doesn't want Mexican-looking Middle Easterners in the U.S. "legally or illegally" below. Then laugh. Then cry.

Chances of her beating Grijalva lie somewhere between slim and none. She'll soon disappear into political oblivion in Arizany.

I live in Arizona and will say that was a dumb thing to say.  Personally I feel all in office need to go! there is way to much bull being thrown.  Noone has the ethics or responsibility level to step up and just do the job.  I mean any job they are elected for, it is all smoke and mirrors and that needs to change.  This is not a personality contest and the media turns it into one and I am quite frankly sick of it....no results!
