Morning Vid: Sharron Angle Tells Latino Students They Look 'More Asian'
Olbermann tries to make sense of the Nevada candidate's musings on race, immigration, and...Canadian terrorists?
The video of Nevada GOP senate contender Sharron Angle telling a group of Hispanic high school students "some of you look a little more Asian to me" is attracting much comment in the blogosphere, but as MSNBC's Keith Olbermann pointed out last night, the most bewildering moment in the clip isn't the 'Asian' remark, but Angle's apparent claim that her anti-illegal immigration campaign spots depict Canadians, not Mexicans. As Olbermann notes, this is doubly confounding considering the ads in question depict "Hispanic men with flashlights, creeping around our fences." Olbermann is also dubious of Angle's claim that "our northern border is where the terrorists came through."
"The Canada-Nevada border?" he wonders.
(No. The Canada-Asia border.)
