Hey Ms. Longoria, I am a Minoity Woman voting for Romney and I am NOT Stupid!

The beau­ti­ful Eva Lon­go­ria is tak­ing some heat for an offen­sive retweet  @eva­l­on­go­ria  “I have no idea why any woman/minority can vote for Rom­ney. You have to be stu­pid to vote for such a racist/misogynistic twat.”

As one of Pres­i­dent Obama’s cam­paign co-chairs and a role model, we would expect a lit­tle more pro­fes­sion­al­ism and sen­si­tiv­ity from her when decid­ing what she is going to retweet.

Maybe Ms. Lon­go­ria can use a refresher course on how to talk politics.


To be fair, she did later delete the tweet and apol­o­gized. *UPDATE: Thurs­day, Oct. 18, 12:10 p.m. ESTLon­go­ria apol­o­gized for offend­ing peo­ple with the retweet, via Twit­ter, writ­ing: “I use Twit­ter as a plat­form for all Amer­i­cans and their opin­ions. Sorry if peo­ple were offended by retweet. Obvi­ously not my words or my per­sonal view. I respect all Amer­i­cans #FreedomOfSpeech.”

For me this is per­sonal since I am a minor­ity, a woman and I sup­port Romney.

In my sem­i­nars when I talk about eti­quette and the Internet, I always stress how impor­tant it is to be care­ful about what you put on the Inter­net because it will fol­low you forever.

There is no doubt that this elec­tion is bring­ing out strong emo­tions on BOTH sides.  How­ever, we need to remem­ber that every­one is enti­tled to their opin­ion, so let’s all show some civil­ity and remem­ber that noth­ing pos­i­tive can be accom­plished from name calling.
