I don’t know what grade presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar got in fourth-grade Spanish, but she got a solid F in her attempts at Hispandering before Nevada’s largest immigrant organization this week. Hispandering, for those uninitiated, is a portmanteau comprised of the words pander and Hispanic. It is an affliction found almost entirely among Democrats, who collectively believe the only way to win Latino’s votes is to kiss their parte trasera.
Not since Hillary Clinton’s 2015 ad underscoring the importance of respeto for los mujeres has a candidate’s motives been more blatantly transparent. As though her gesture wasn’t already shameful enough, the anecdote she told made no sense.

Which Rs in the name Amy did she find it difficult to roll?
The only way Klobuchar can hope to save face is by legally changing her name to “Ramy.”
