Stand With Arizona? Not John McCain

Thanks to Barbara Espinosa for posting this picture:

That’s Maverick with then-Gov. Janet Napolitano at a 2004 rally against Proposition 200, which requires “individuals to provide proof of citizenship before they may register to vote or apply for public benefits in Arizona.” Prop 200 passed with 56% of the vote and yet somehow, that backstabbing crapweasel John McCain won re-election in 2004.

Attendance at Saturday’s “Stand With Arizona” rally was 7,000:

TEMPE, Ariz. — Seven-thousand people packed into Diablo Stadium in Tempe Saturday night, making sure Arizona knew there are quite a few people who said the new immigration law is just what the state needs.
It was a major event for the pro-1070 movement, a rally bringing people from across the country to Arizona. . . .
“Our economy is gonna keep building the more controversy so I say more, I’ll cause more controversy, I guarantee you in the next two months so they want to keep coming back, that’s great,” added Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Griff Jenkins of Fox News was at the Tempe rally, where he greeted a certain Arizona blogging celebrity:

Speaking of people on a first-name basis with Barbara Espinosa, guess who was on “Meet the Press” Sunday?

    McCain’s flipflop elicited comment from an NRO reader last month. Which elicited comment from me:

    Thing is, all the horrific developments along the border in the last few years? Us border-control hard-liners saw all that coming back when Bush and McCain were calling us know-nothings and racists.

    Barack Obama didn’t win the 2008 election, in my opinion — the GOP forfeited it by nominating John McCain.

    McCain has now “tacked” right, so until he gets re-elected, his 2004 position is temporarily on hold. Suckas.

    Oh my, a majority of Californians are racists!

    Nice headline. But doesn’t those poll numbers translate to a majority?

    Unfortunately, McCain isn’t opposed by a stand-up guy like Shaddegg or Flake in the primary, he is up against the crooked lunatic J.D. Hayworth, who only managed to avoid an ethics investigation by blowing his safe Republican House seat.

    Prop. 200? Wasn’t that Arizona’s imitation of California’s Prop 187 of 1994? Sen. McCain opposed the people on 187 too, I recall.

    So as I read above, I am wondering why there are no comments about the crazy guy running against McCain? I live in Arizona, am a registered Republican and can honestly say that I have not supported everything McCain has voted for, but as far as his fiscally conservative history (3rd most in Senate) and as far as his Foreign Policy knowledge and strength, he conquers the dingy JD. As far as I am concerned, this election, I am voting the the better of the two, not the best of the best. However, there is no way I would send JD back to Congress, I did that one time and regret even thinking about what he did to us!!

    Jackson I agree with you. JD is just way to polarizing of a figure to lead this state right now. His viewpoints divide a state that is going thru tough time right from a community perspective.
