Feathered Bastard

Jan Brewer, Russell Pearce, Tom Horne Lose (Again) on SB 1070, This Time On Harboring Provision

Governor Jan Brewer, recalled redneck pol Russell Pearce, Brewer's "brain" Chuck Coughlin, and Attorney General Tom "Hit-and-Run" Horne best hope and pray there is no afterlife.

Because if there is, I virtually can assure them that they, along with their pal Sheriff Joe, will boil in a hot tub of molten lava for their futile, money-sucking, Tea Party-pandering support of Senate Bill 1070, which has suffered yet another defeat in federal court.

On Tuesday a panel of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the harboring provision of 1070 was so badly written as to be "unconstitutionally vague" and "nonsensical."

Which isn't surprising, considering that Brewer has the functioning IQ of a tadpole and Pearce, 1070's hateful "author," is borderline illiterate to judge from the man's near-incomprehensible emails and incoherent oratory.
