The Arizona Democratic Party is shocked to learn that Sarah Palin might use Arizona as her headquarters for a Presidential run. (She`s bought a house near Scottsdale, in Maricopa—where the sheriff is on the American side.)
The AZ Dems have issued an alert to their supporters saying
"Help us send a strong message that Arizona should not be a stepping stone for extremist politicians and their radical agendas,"
I don`t see why not—Arizona is the home of Senator Barry Goldwater, famous for saying "extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.". But really, what this means is that the Arizona Democratic Party welcomes tens of thousands of illegal aliens from Mexico, but doesn`t want one hockey mom from Alaska. As for extremism, try this quote from Peter Brimelow:
I have only one loyalty,” he says, “and that’s to the immigrant community.”
Keeping Obama to His Word, by Arian-Campo-Flores, Newsweek, November 29, 2010.
The extremist in that quote is not Brimelow (for a change) but Arizona Democrat Luis Gutierrez.
Update: My mistake—Gutierrez is a Chicago Democrat—like the President. I was thinking of Raul Grijalva.
Grijalva said after the Tucson shooting that Sarah Palin "needs to look at her own behavior, and if she wants to help the public discourse, the best thing she could do is to keep quiet."
And when we`re talking about rhetoric, Grijalva is the man who said “We`re going to overturn this unjust and racist law, and then we`re going to overturn the power structure that created this unjust, racist law." and called for a boycott of his own state.
