Or that he's setting his sights on a national office.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

running on a strong anti-immigrant platform for the senate or house would be really dumb considering how many hispanic voters Arizona has, and running on an anti-immigrant platform for the presidency would be even more dumb. I hope he goes for it.

Yep, and she cost the republicans the presidency in 2008.

Let's hope we can rekindle that magic in 2012.

I'm just saying, it'd be a step up.

...you...haven't been following McCain versus Hayworth, I see.

I think I got into it earlier in the thread (EDIT: nope, it was in the 2010 thread), but McCain's being challenged from the right by a really nasty guy, my former Congressman, who's running pretty much on a straight anti-immigrant platform and, as a result, causing McCain a serious run for his money, forcing him to go hard right of his usually moderate immigration stance.

Now granted, that's the Republican primary, not the general election, but I really don't see a Democrat taking that seat.  The last time we elected a Democrat was in '88 -- and HE endorsed Arpaio in '08.  Fuck, I don't even know who's RUNNING for the seat on the D side.

Now, 1070 has real potential to create a groundswell in Hispanic voting, both in Arizona and nationwide, and I sincerely hope it does -- but historically, no, race-baiting has been a perfectly good way to get elected in Arizona.

CBS: Flagstaff and some place called Tuscon are suing the state over 1070.

...seriously.  The article misspells "Tucson" EIGHT TIMES.

Bet you didn't expect to see anything new in this thread, eh? Well, to be fair I haven't heard the details or read the law yet. Some are arguing it is racism and some are arguing that is is fighting racism. If it's the latter, not much of a story and commendable, I guess. It sounds bad but time will tell the details, I am sure. It is a new story so it won't stay in the dark for long.

They're not trying to curb racism, they're trying to get away with being racists themselves, it seems like. They want to, essentially, persecute Hispanic and Latino people, but they don't want the Hispanic and Latino people to feel persecuted.

Anyway, shouldn't this law be considered unconstitutional? Seems like it flies right in the face of the First Amendment.

That link was worth it just for this cute little exchange in the comments:

Similar type of bill:  Anti-affirmative action
Claims to be anti-racist, but is actually countering a counter measure of racism.
It's hard to argue about against it, without being called a racist yourself*.  Yet all it is, is a bunch of racists/denialists cleverly forcing through a bill that adds no actual protection for anyone, but harms minorities.

*Because we've somehow redefined racism not as something that is actively against or harmful to a group of people, but any act that perpetuates the thought that the groups are different from one another and/or not entirely equal on social, legal, or biological terms--which let's face it, they're not.

Technically, racism refers to bias based on genetic differences, which has been disproved. 

This makes me a culturalist.

A nun approved a lifesaving abortion at St. Joseph's Hospital and was demoted (and possibly excommunicated.)

...well, occasionally we fail to do something utterly self-destructive.

Looks like that 1-cent tax increase passed and we're not going to have to lay off thousands of government employees, so that's good.

Hell, the .02% tax increase in Tempe passed 2-to-1.

Anyway, not a big surprise but a bit of a relief, and a sign that the place I live still has some very small amount of sanity remaining.

I'm sure the argument there was "Oh hey guess who's actually going to be catching all these taco niggers?"
