What does Jon Kyl know of "inappropriate"?

From Talking Points Memo, quoting Kyl from an appearance on this morning's Face The Nation on CBS -
Kyl: Arizona Sheriff's Remarks Inappropriate

In a Sunday morning appearance on Face the Nation, Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl (R-AZ) took issue with Pima County Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who criticized Arizona hours after the Giffords shooting.

"I didn't really think that that had any part in a law enforcement briefing," Kyl said.
Reminder: Kyl is the Republican Senator that argued that having the U.S. Senate work during the week between Christmas and New Year's would be "disrespecting" Christmas and Christians.

Nice lack of credibility there, Senator Kyl.

It's too bad that one of the few times in recent memory that Kyl has noticed events in Arizona (you know, the state that he is elected to represent), it took a massacre to gain his attention.

Or that his "attention" consisted of criticizing one of the people who has been dealing with the fallout from his (and the legislature's) less-than-benign neglect of the state.

Hello, we are with the Jon Kyl recall campaign. We are now officially registered with the Arizona Secretary of State http://ftp­­/election/­2012/Gener­al/Initiat­ives.htm
U.S. Senator Jon Kyl has signed a recall statement on file with the Arizona Secretary of State. We are trying to let people know that we do not have to accept corrupt and heartless politician­s such as U.S. Senator Jon Kyl, whether Democrat, Republican or any political party.
We believe that healthcare for emegency responders should not be held hostage over politics especially in the shameful and disgracefu­l way this corrupt senator Kyl has done. The rumor is he wants to retire early, well we are here to help him retire a little early and make an example of what happens to politician­s like Kyl who give a Arizona a black eye especially when it comes to playing politics with medical care for our emergency responders of 9/11. Shame on Jon Kyl ! Please help us recall him ! Please call us if you have any questions at: 623-329-02­84 our webpage is: leonardcla­
