Liberal Hispanic groups consider stereotyping themselves with “Tequila Party” label

Another one from the Dept. of You Can’t Make This Up (via Memeorandum):

The idea of a “Tequila Party,” which until recently was only quietly debated among Latino leaders, is now making a splash.

First reported Sunday by the Sun, the proposal has gained international attention and has been featured in news publications worldwide.

Latino leaders frustrated by Democrat’s inaction on immigration reform and fears that as a voting bloc they’re a political afterthought are discussing whether to sever their traditional Democratic ties and form an independent grass-roots political group.

They have talked about modeling the effort after the Tea Party, not in substance but in grass-roots organizational style, and have dubbed the proposed movement the “Tequila Party.”

Fernando Romero, president of the nonpartisan Hispanics in Politics, who has spoken with leaders in Nevada and nationally about the proposed effort, said he has been inundated by calls since he was featured in the Sun story.

Funny. For a group as vilified by both the MSM and liberals (but I repeat myself) as “hateful” and “exclusionary”, there sure are a lot of liberals out there doing their darnedest to recreate the same type of grassroots energy that has spurred the Tea Party to national recognition and influence. After the Tea Party came the so-called “Coffee Party” – started in January of this year by jealous liberals. That particular movement so far has been an epic failure, as noted here in a September post by Newsbusters’ PJ Gladnick on the 1st annual Coffee Party “convention.” If the “Tequila Party” takes root, will it, too, suffer the same fate?

I guess it depends on how many worms are found in the bottom of the Tequila bottle …
