Sarah Palin will be in Phoenix Saturday at the Marriott Desert Ridge, joining her fellow Republican, Governor Jan Brewer in an event billed at launching a "national effort and Web site to educate America on border security and encourage support for Arizona."
In other words, Brewer's hoping Caribou Barbie can do for her what she did for John McCain's presidential bid in 2008. (Ahem.)
See, Brewer's desperate to convince the world that they've got SB 1070, the new "papers please" legislation she signed into law, all wrong. Yesterday, Brewer announced a tourism task force to stem the hemorrhaging from that still-bleeding corpse known as Arizona's reputation.
This is 100 percent hogwash, with all apologies to the hogs. See, the law requires police to check immigration status during any "lawful stop, detention or arrest" where cops have "reasonable suspicion" to believe you're in the country illegally.
