I like Arizona Republic scribe Laurie Roberts. She's a smart, classy lady. And I believe she means well.
As a columnist, she has the luxury of tut-tutting the hard work of others, as she did in her column today, where she wrote off the recall of Arpaio as "doomed" and fraught with political miscalculation.
This comes after what the recall may one day look back on as "Black Monday," when the anti-Arpaio group Respect Arizona announced that it was suspending the use of paid canvassers to collect signatures, and will be reverting to an all-volunteer army to score the remaining sigs to put Arpaio out to pasture.
