Let's see -
- Alabama's then-Governor (and staunch segregationist) George Wallace objected to the federal Civil Rights Act and the Voting Rights Act in the 1960s.
- Arizona Governor (and staunch nativist) Jan Brewer has objected to the inclusion of SB1070 and Arizona in the Universal Periodic Review report submitted to the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
- George Wallace ran for President in 1964, 1968, 1972, and 1976.
- Jan Brewer should have some free time on her hands after Terry Goddard wins the election in November, so....?
Yeah, I know this is a bit of a cheap shot (more of a spleen vent than an actual post), but with Brewer's whole-hearted embrace of the nativist wing of the AZGOP, spewing of frightening rhetoric (beheadings, anyone?), and enthusiastic obliviousness to the threat presented by three murderers with ties to white supremacists who escaped from a private prison in Kingman, she's become an embarrassment to the state.
Elect Terry Goddard, if only to keep Arizona off of The Daily Show.
Note: I love watching The Daily Show. I don't love watching Arizona on The Daily Show.
