Successful Communication with Minoriteis


Via Steve Benen 

the folks who'll appear on the panel about "successful communication with minorities and women," and the criticism here seems far more reasonable.
[The session will have] a female moderator (Rachel Campos-Duffy), a female consultant (Ana Navarro), a female congressman (Rep. Jaime Herrera Buetler), and three congressmen who are neither female nor minorities: Rep. Adam Kinzinger, Rep. Scott Rigell, and Rep. Frank Wolf.


 I will pass over the gender confusion of "female congressman" and note that  the congresperson in question is Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutlerhttp://herrerabeutler.house.gov/ who is not named Jaime Herrera Buetler.  Inability to spell Spanish surnames does not contribute to  "successful communication with minorities ..." .  Oooooops

In the unlikely event that they get hammered again in 2014, they can say "the 'Buetler' did it".

I hope that was an intended imitation of Flann O'Brien's Keats and Chapman shaggy-dog jokes.
