I don't normally counter-post something that an R blogger has put up, and I certainly don't publicize R campaign events, but this one is a press release and it features a combination of performers that is so stunning that it merits a post of its own.
The press release for this event was originally published by the R blog Sonoran Alliance here.
My first thought upon seeing this was "whatthehell does Joe Arpaio have to do with education?"*
* = OK, he probably thinks that the fact that there are still people in the county who don't worship the ground he walks on is evidence that there is *too much* education in Arizona, but other than that, he doesn't appear to have any ties to the education system in Arizona.
Of course, Thursday's forum is probably less about "education" and more about "winning the Republican primary". Huppenthal spent most of the last eight years in the state senate working to weaken the state's education system, and nothing about his embrace of Arpaio indicates that he is interested in fixing what he helped to break.
Of course, I'm just a cynic...
BTW - Normally, I don't bother attending R events, but this one should be fascinating in a "train wreck" sort of way...
