1. Yikes! She's a McCain/Palin supporter!
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mar%C3%ADa_Conchita_Alonso

Alonso is an outspoken critic of elected Venezuelan leader Hugo Chvez, whom she has described as a "dictator" like "Hitler,"<2> and those who vote and support him as "terrorists."<3> She has appeared on Sean Hannity's Hannity's America on May 6, 2007, Hannity & Colmes on June 1, 2007<2> and Bill O'Reilly's The O'Reilly Factor on August 13, 2007 and March 11, 2009.

In the fall of 2008, Alonso endorsed the presidential campaign of Republican nominee John McCain, writing:
As a Latina and a new American citizen, I believe in this country and its people, and I believe that we need more than just "change." We need a leader who can bring about the right kind of change, and John McCain has the experience and judgment necessary to lead us in these uncertain times. I grew up in Cuba and Venezuela, and I am appalled that Barack Obama apparently wants to emulate the "spread the wealth" economic policies of those countries and negotiate with their leaders.<4>

Mara's brother, Roberto Alonso, was one of the four speakers who gave a speech at the closing of Senator John McCain's campaign in Florida.



I'm appalled that anyone would support McCain/Palin. She should be ashamed of herself, voting to destroy her new country.
