Sharron Angle tells Hispanic students: 'Some of you look a little more Asian to me'

Nevada political reporter Jon Ralston has unearthed a strange comment from Nevada Republican Senate candidate Sharron Angle. "So that's what we want is a secure and sovereign nation and, you know, I don't know that all of you are Latino. Some of you look a little more Asian to me. I don't know that," she told Rancho High School's Hispanic Student Union on Friday. "What we know, what we know about ourselves is that we are a melting pot in this country. My grandchildren are evidence of that. I'm evidence of that. I've been called the first Asian legislator in our Nevada State Assembly." Here's video.
