Interview with La Cucaracha's creator, Lalo Alcaraz
Patt Morrison Asks: Pocho pundit Lalo Alcaraz
Who exactly is Mexican Mitt?
He Mitt Romney's alter ego who somehow exists in the same dimension as Mitt Romney. People tweet Mexican Mitt every day and ask questions. They'll say, I saw you on the news! They say, Why did you deny your Mexican heritage again today?
Romney has been running for four years. Where has Mexican Mitt been all this time?
Most of the time he's been sequestered his campaign headquarters, which is a sprawling goat ranch somewhere in Chihuahua, but apparently he's been on the move . He live tweets the debates while he's onstage and not and people just accept this.
I would love to do shots with Mexican Mitt as he barbecues a goat for me on his ranch. He's living the Mexi-Mormon dream.
OK now: Romney is eligible for dual U.S.-Mexican citizenship because his father was born in Mexico. And Mormons have been known to baptize the dead by proxy, in order to be united in the afterlife with those who died before the advent of Mormonism. So, maybe Mexican Mitt could apply for Mexican citizenship for Romney by proxy?
That is the first thing Mexican Mitt is going to do as soon as this column is out! He did baptize Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera the other day.
Are Mexican Mitt's politics different from the real Mitt's?
Mexican Mitt gets tweets from people who say, I love you so much but I can't stand what you say. He's against the Dream Act; he thinks undocumented students should only dream of him. He loves firing people; he goes to Home Depot and hires undocumented workers just to fire them.
