Thursday from 4:30 p.m. to 7 p.m., just about all of the anti-Mexican bigots in Arizona politics are scheduled to be in the same place: at the Macayo's Mexican Kitchen on Central Avenue in Phoenix, raising money for disgraced, recalled ex-state Senate President Russell Pearce.
So beware a run on white sheets and hide that ten foot cross, because the meanest, foulest, crassest, trashiest nativists in existence will be descending on this alleged Mexican eatery to sing the praises of their corrupt, racist leader, a man who once called neo-Nazi baby-killer J.T. Ready "a true patriot" and who vilifies the American citizen children of hard-working immigrant parents as "anchor babies."
(Rumor is Olivia Cortes will be on hand to hop out of a giant flan as a bandolier-wearin' Constantin Querard sings La Cucaracha. But I've yet to confirm this.)
Here follows a list of the Pearce foot-lickers promising to be in attendance. And yes, all of the above applies to state Representative Steve Montenegro as well, because the Salvadoran native also likes hating on brown folk, too. So much so that I hear he's considering changing his last name to "Malinche."
The roll call of shame will supposedly include:
State Senator Sylvia "The Earth is only 6,000 years old" Allen, who recently punked out of a Legislative District 6 run because she's a wingnut wussy and can't hack competition;
State Senator Frank Antenori, who once served honorably in Afghanistan and has the rocks in his head to prove it;
State Senator Andy Biggs, who believes that people should not take handouts, unless they're $10 million ones from (the now late) Ed McMahon, in which case he's all for 'em.
State Senator Judy Burges, one of those birther twits, nuff said;
State Representative Chester Crandell, who does a dead-on impersonation of a hat rack;
State Representative Eddie Farnsworth, whose snout is so far up Pearce's intestines that he sneezes when Russ burps;
State Representative John Fillmore, who reportedly believes in the decriminalization of pot, and so gets a pass, or a pass the dutchie on the left hand side, from moi;
State Representative David Gowan, supporter of the "warn that pansy Sheriff Joe when the feds are a-comin' so he can hide" bill;
State Representative Rick Gray, who lives in Sun City and hopes to stay awake for the entire event;
State Representative Peggy Judd, rumored to be the life of the Tea Party (not);
State Representative John Kavanagh, aka, Russell Pearce with an annoying Yankee accent and a porn star mustache;
State Representative Debbie Lesko, who thinks IUD means the same thing as DUI spelled backward;
State Representative Nancy McLain, known for her support of small business -- in California;·
State Senator Al Melvin, if the Depends hold out, he may be there all night;
State Representative Steve Montenegro, aka, "token," is hoping none of his gabacho pals asks him to freshen their drinks;
State Representative Justin Olson, a young man incapable of inspiring a one-liner, he's so exciting;
State Representative Terri Proud, really, someone should ask her to do the chicken dance with Sylvia Allen;
State Senator Steve Smith, has three passions -- the 40 weight in his hair, helping aspiring entertainers be all they can be in, um, Sand Land, and raising cash for an invisible border fence;
And, last but not least, State Representative Michelle Ugenti, known for alleging in committee, and on the record, that a male colleague was looking forward to a "hot date" with his gal-pal Senorita Rosy Palm.
Below is an e-mailed copy of the invite, straight from the great man himself, minus that National Alliance screed he
likes so much mistakenly sent out years back. If you're attending, the first one to hear Pearce say, "Operation Wetback," wins an all expenses paid trip to Yuma to watch illegal immigrants do the farm work you're too lazy to do.
(BTW, I did call Macayo's and they confirm the wingnut wing-ding is on like Donkey-Kong.)
