It’s not unusual for Republican bloggers to occasionally get carried away over items that ordinary folks find irrelevant, but in this particular case – this astronomical blunder might just lead to McCain losing New Mexico.  And heads need to roll!  [outrageous]

So just what happened?

Well, apparently last night during the convention, the RNC AV club mistakenly placed a picture of a cactus on the screen that was “supposed” to represent the state of New Mexico.  One HUGE problem, that particular cactus is not native to New Mexico.  It’s native to Arizona. Duh.

And as one Republican blogger angrily pointed out – it’s happened before.

Take a good long look at the picture to the left.  This is a saguaro cactus. It is native to Arizona, parts of Mexico and a small piece of California.  It DOES NOT GROW in New Mexico.

Despite this fact, every four years you morons insist on putting it on the slide for New Mexico that appears on the giant screen behind the stage at the Republican convention.

Luckily for the RNC staff four years ago, this Prickly Republican was on-set to catch the mistake before the whole world witnessed it.

In 2004, I was in Madison Square Garden during the run through and stopped you idiots from doing this.  I saw the slide, called some folks at the convention, and got it taken out just before it went on air.

But, because the cost of gas is so high, unfortunately the GOP can’t count on him to show up every four years to monitor the situation.

Unfortunately, I can’t be there every four years, so you’re going to have to write this shit down and put it in a file for next time.  I cannot be clearer.  THE SAGUARO CACTUS DOES NOT GROW IN NEW MEXICO!  Including it is an insult to New Mexicans  – all of whom know that this cactus doesn’t grow there.

So what does this mean?

The fact that you do it every four years says, “F**k You!” to a state that you need to win.

And so now, when McCain loses New Mexico, we’ll know why.
