A photograph of these three Latino men is featured prominently in Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle's race-baiting new campaign ad. Do they seem familiar? Maybe it's because another Republican already used the same exact photo in his ad.
Threatening! But seriously, guys, what's the deal? You can't spring for a better stock photo service? Or are those the only three illegal immigrants you could find? And really, these are the scariest-looking immigrants you could find? I know the guy in the front has his baseball cap on backwards, in the manner of a hooligan, but mostly these dudes look hungry.
Either way, in terms of nutty, crypto-racism, Angle definitely wins, thanks to her juxtaposition of the starkly-lit Latino men against footage of smiling, laughing, and, most importantly, white college graduates. One thing's for sure: We can't wait to see where these three "illegal aliens" pop up next, and what will be written in the bold, sans-serif capital letters that will accompany them!
