Wisdom from Carlos Mencia
From what I remember of Mencia's standup routing describing an interview he participated in for inclusion in a political discussion roundtable concerning immigration reform.
Interviewer: So, what is your angle?
Interviewer: I mean, where are you coming from?
Mencia: My home. Why don't you just be man enough to ask me the question you want to ask me?
Interviewer: Ok, are a Republican or a Democrat?
Interviewer: What do you mean?
Mencia: Well, I consider myself reasonably intelligent and I don't like being half right all the time.
Interviewer: Okay, Are you conservative or liberal?
Interviewer: What do you mean by that?
Mencia: I have a teen age daughter. When it comes to her I am very conservative - Bible believing, bible belt buckle, thou shalt not, fire and brimstone, truth, good vs evil all the way.
But with your daughter - I am liberal.
Mencia was not asked to be on the panel to discuss immigration reform.
