BTW - in other "Republicans inviting ridicule" news, the AZRep's Political Insider has the scoop on a new website that shines a light on some of the more perceptive utterances of one of Arizona's most erudite legislators, State Senator Sylvia Allen.

“Our little creeks and watersheds were full because the forest was not filled with all these trees… And so the trees are taking our water.” 6/15/09 Senate Natural Resources, Infrastructures and Public Debt
“The wealthy have done a lot for us. But what are we doing for the wealthy? We need to be giving back, too.” 7/30/10 Senate Appropriations – Special SessionThat last quote is from 2009, not 2010, but I actually saw her spout that one.
Luckily, I have a beard, otherwise, but jaw would have been severely scraped because it hit the floor so hard. :)
