T-N: A Bigot Is A Bigot, In Any Language

Above all else, avoid insulting 10 percent of your political constituency. That’s our advice to the Bonner County Republican Central Committee — now in full control of the reactionaries who dominated this summer’s Idaho Republican Convention inIdaho Falls — who don’t like the north Idaho county calling this summer’s county fair a “fiesta,” according to the Spokesman-Review of Spokane, Wash. Too Latino. Too Mexican, you see. So the resident wingnuts up Sandpoint way are planning to decorate their fair booth with Arizona license plates and use “celebrate” as its theme instead/Twin Falls Times-News Editorial Board.
