The Idiocracy Comes To Milwaukee

Oh, she saids she misspoke, but then she said something even more dumb:

“I did get a passing grade in Geography in high school and in college and I do obviously know that Arizona is on the border,” West said in an interview after today’s meeting.

West claims that the point she was trying to make is that because Texas has a much larger border with Mexico, she might feel differently about such a law in that state. “Had Texas come out with the legislation, having the largest border, I think that I would be more receptive to the fact that there was a problem. But having it be Arizona, having it be the second largest boarder and knowing there are troops on the border in Arizona, it didn’t seem to me that this legislation was particularly necessary at this moment in time,” West said.

Ok, help me out here. Logic clearly fails either Peggy West* or me. It would have been ok to pass SB1070 in Texas and not Arizona?

I think she’d be upset if it passed in either state, Peggy West is just making excuses or just doesn’t know what she is talking about. Making one dumb comment to explain the first dumb comment, does not make the first comment less dumb**.


*Now, no need to cause trouble. This is a public site that I easily found. I’m just making it easy for you to find it.

**Or something like that… Shut-up! I’m becoming dumb just talking about her!
