Gloria Estefan Is About to Get Tea Bagged
Gloria and Emilio Estefan's decision to hold a swanky $30,400-per-couple fundraiser for the Democratic National Committee featuring Barack Obama didn't sit well with many in Miami's largely Republican Cuban-American community. Hell, Herald columnist Jackie Bueno Sousa even gave ink to the idea that some folks should throw out their entire Estefan CD collection.
"Again, [the Estefans] have every right to support Obama or chairman Mao if they wish. However, do not pretent [sic] that you are a friend of liberty if you promote, support and contribute to those that want to see our founding principles destroyed," founder Marco Sendon wrote on the group's blog.
Sendon tells NP he's urging protesters to write "pithy but respectful signs" (with let's hope correct spelling).
