It's tired because it's blatantly accurate and obvious.

It may be common if you're Hispanic, not Irish.

An Irishman calling himself "Beto" and speaking Spanish to pander to the Hispanics while running against a Cuban named "Rafael Cruz" is tantamount to McCain coming out in a FUBU jersey with a bucket of fried chicken while runnning against Obama to pander to the blacks.

Politics is like prison. Stick with your own ethicity and don't drop the soap.

Is he trying to hide his Irish side?

And Ted Cruz' real first name is "Rafael."

That's a baller name. WAY better than "Ted."

Rafael = Archangel, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, Painter

Ted = Unabomber
