Lo siento: An apology to Senator McCain

“El Guapo, I like you man. You make me laugh with your stupid stories. Stick with what you know tho. Talk about flan, dancing, hookers and smoking weed. Leave the politics to those who know better. U made yourself look like an ass with your McCain post.”

“John McCain was an American POW and an American hero. He can call anyone he wants a varmint. Argentine wannabe.”

“EG why don’t you just come out and say that you’re a gay liberal Dem. Stop making fun of all the Republicans. You suck.”

And so went a couple of e-mails that I received about my last post. I didn’t realize how many McCain supporters and Republicans graced my little corner of the Internet. I’m honored that you read me and I am truly sorry that I made Senator McCain look like a racist.

I totally didn’t read the entire article. I totally didn’t get the mocking reference. I totally made an Argentine of myself. Lo siento. I’ll try to stay away from politics.

I also would like to apologize to John McCain. I’m sorry. To make it up to you, Senator McCain, I’m going to write about you in this post. In a positive light. Luckily, I’m the greatest Guatemalan blogger based in Washington DC and will make things right. Here are the top five things that you didn’t know about John McCain:

1. Much like the Republican mascot, John McCain is hung like an elephant. It’s true. I had an amigo who saw it in the Senate gym. He had to swing it over his shoulder so that he wouldn’t get rug burn.
2. England didn’t go to war with Argentina over the Falkland Islands. They just sent John McCain, who single-handedly kicked their lamb loving culos.
3. John McCain didn’t need to wear bullet proof vests when he was in the Vietnam War. His chest hair repels bullets.
4. John McCain is perfect. He shits flan.
5. Ronald Reagan always remembered who John McCain was.

Again, I’m sorry for calling John McCain a racist. I’m even going as far as giving him an honorary Latino card through the month of July.

Mucho Amor,

El Guapo

It's true, El Guapo, it's true!

I typed "greatest Guatemalan blogger based in Washington DC" into Google - that's GOOGLE, man, like the biggest, most powerful search engine IN THE WORLD - and do you know who came up in the NUMBER ONE spot?

You, El Guapo, it was YOU!

If he has any sense about him at all, Senator McCain should sign you up to his team immediately.

While I agree that you needed the whole story, I'm a little disappointed that you bounced back so far.

Still love the blog.

El Guapo, you have a lot of class for owning up to making a mistake. So many people don't do that today. I've been readiny uor blog for quite sometime and I really enjoy your writing.

As far as McCain, he might be a war hero, but my admiration for him stops there. Also, while I understand the context of his quote, he should not have said what he said. Immigration, specifically illegal immigration, is a serious issue in this country and to mock someone (Romney) for simply wanting to enforce our country's existing laws is a disgrace.

I am not against people from any particular country or group, but we can't have people from basically what are third world countries flooding in here at will unchecked like they are going now.

I'm sorry if that view offends anyone, but if we do not control illegal immigration, then this country is going to become like the third-world countries that people are trying to leave behind. It is all about quality of life for those of us that are already here and not to mention national security. Right now most people are coming here illegally to try to make a better life for themselves, but in the process its creating havoc. 12+ million that we KNOW about, and probably half as many more that we don't is ridiculous. Some countries (I think Morrocco) has guards on the border between their country and Africa that will shoot to kill anyonme trying to cross into their country illegally. Why are other countries allowed to protect their borders and their country's quality of life and yet The U.S. gets flak because they merely want to build a wall?

I'm pretty sure Mccain is known for calling vietnamese people "gooks." He is an ignorant repub, like most of them.

Absolutely. Effing. Brilliant.

Well done, EG! I always love reading your blog, but man, this post takes the cake. Or the flan, if you will. :) Great job!

haham funny apology.

Anon is right though. I'm mexican and I agree that the U.S. has a right to defend it's border and to have a say on who goes in and who doesn't...but really, the problem didn't just pop up a few months ago, it's been going on for more than 70 years! So it's kinda late to get all paranoid and build a WALL. A wall, I ask you. A wall won't keep people out. It's just a very stupid, useless move and that will affect animals which migrate.

If the U.S. really wanted to keep illegal inmigrants out, it would have done something about it decades ago!

El Guapo, Do you think McCain would shop at your local DC Latino Market? Baghdad markets do not phase him.

I want to add to the list.

McCain would roll Rampage
