SB 1070 as a Ballad?

I see the Federale blog has supplied a useful amplification to Heather Mac Donald’s NRO discussion about the flimsiness of the reasoning Judge Susan Bolton used to camouflage her tyrannical action on SB1070 yesterday.

Of course it is a remarkable thing to see a Federal Judge protecting an Administration’s decision not the enforce the law, but it only further validates two key contentions: Judges have become flagrantly political creatures who must be disciplined by impeachment, and Elena Kagan is not fit to be on the Supreme Court and must be filibustered.

On a brighter note Arizona’s Governor Brewer appears to have hit a PR home run in an exchange with Robert Sarver, the owner of the Phoenix Suns: AZ law simply good business practice Chuck Groening 7/27/10

In a May 2010 interview with ESPN, Sarver said the law calls into question “our basic principles of equal rights and protection under the law” and will cause Arizona's economy to suffer setbacks at a time when the state is already in economic distress.

But Governor Brewer recently crafted a response to the basketball mogul, asking him what would happen if (1) hordes of gate-crashers sneaked into Suns' games without paying and (2) the team could not ask for ticket stubs but would have to provide those people free food and drinks at the game and even be forced to provide free medical care if they were injured at the game.

Sarver’s Treason Lobby enthusiasm was predictable and probably has little to do with business. The Brewer response seems to have really rung a bell. I have seen it turn up with sympathetic treatment in some surprising places: in the Fletcher of Saltoun tradition it may the most valuable product so far of Arizona’s effort to protect its citizens from a feckless federal Government.
