Robert Cluck, the Republican Mayor of 
Arlington, Texas---population 365,438 and home
to the Texas Rangers and the Dallas Cowboys---
is in ethical hot water for referring to Latinos
in his city government as 'a bunch of Mexicans'.
Of him, Kenneth Burke might have said, "A 
dubious name is a name half ill, and 'He that 
hath an ill name is half hanged'."

Wouldn't it be easier to call him The Dumb Cluck?

Exactly! That's what Burke was saying.
