Thanks to Hank Stephenson for witnessing this particular exchange on the Arizona House floor yesterday, as first, Rep. Richard Miranda stood up for some sort of state official holiday and committee celebrating Hispanic culture, and then Rep. Jack Harper says something sort of dumb about Cesar Chavez, then Rep. Ruben Gallego fires back, but then it gets really good when Rep. Cecil Ash hopes that white people will have a holiday when they become the minority. One might assume that the audience might be unwilling to applaud such a ridiculous and possibly bigoted idea, but nope, the applause ensues. Another great legislative session, everybody!
