" Dad , I lived in a tanning bed for a week & had my hair darkened .

I went over and over the script . Bought the chihuahua you cleverly wanted named , 'Amigo' ,

and carried him with me up to the  podium . " 

Uh , you said the Mexicans wouldn't know the difference .....

" I believed they did ... "

" DAMN ROSETTA STONE !!! "

As reported on TMZ , by a waiter

overhearing the Gov and his son

during a recent meal ...

I always like this time of election season when the Republicans come out and acknowledge our existence!

Just because he can speak Spanish doesn't mean he understand the Latino Culture. We are not simple minded and to believe for one second that speaking Spanish would get his daddy votes. I take that as an insult.

Why would having a son who speaks Spanish help win Latino votes? Are you implying that Latino's are so simple that they will ignore Mitt's policies and record and vote for him because Craig told them to in their native language?

Yes, because I'd rather hear about his lame family sawing wood in the name of Joseph Smith than about foreign and domestic policy.

His visit serves as a token for all "the little brown ones" too politically naive to know the harm Republicans have done to this country and seek to do to immigrants.
