So I get this email from the Kansas Democratic Party — keep your enemies closer don’tcha know.

REP CONNIE O’BRIEN (R-Tonganoxie)
My son who’s a Kansas resident, born here, raised here, didn’t qualify for any financial aid. Yet this girl was going to get financial aid. My son was kinda upset about it because he works and pays for his own schooling and his books and everything and he didn’t think that was fair. We didn’t ask the girl what nationality she was, we didn’t think that was proper. But we could tell by looking at her that she was not originally from this country.

REP SEAN GATEWOOD (D-Topeka)
Can you expand on how you could tell that they were illegal?

REP CONNIE O’BRIEN (R-Tonganoxie)
Well she wasn’t black, she wasn’t Asian, and she had the olive complexion.

Now not to defend O’Brien’s comments, which were reprehensible, but remember when our esteemed Vice President Joe Biden said you couldn’t go to a 7/11 or Dunkin’ Donuts unless you had an Indian accent?

How about the “Clean and Articulate” comment from Harry Reid? O’Brien may just get hounded out of office. Reid and Biden got elected!
