Looks like black and gay lawmakers aren’t the only ones being pelted with vicious slurs by folks who oppose the health reform proposal. Add a Hispanic lawmaker to the list. Trifecta!
Rep. Ciro Rodriguez of Texas has confided to colleages that he was hammered by ethnic slurs by people opposed to reform passing, one of those colleagues tells me.
Rep March Kaptur told me in the hallway today that Rodriguez privately told her he’d been called “some names” back in his district. She confirmed that they were ethnic slurs, but declined to elaborate.
Fair. Balanced. American.

Republican activists, also known as teabaggers, didn't stop with African Americans and gays. Today comes word that a third group was insultworthy. Their identity will surprise no one acquainted with the GOP since 2005: Hispanics.
