Texas Gov. Rick Perry addressed the Latino Elected and Appointed Official's conference in San Antonio on the the 28th of last month. Perry has long struggled with the perception he is insensitive to Latino issues and he is eager to appeal to this fast growing demographic.
He used this opportunity to boast about a recent appointment of a Latino, Jose Cuevas, to head the state Alchoholic Beverage Commission. He said that Jose Cuevas sounds like a popular tequila brand name. Reportedly the joke did not go over well.
