The Arizona Legislature still hasn't balanced last year's budget, and they certainly seem to have no interest in tackling this year's deficits - so why do they bother even meeting?
The primary reason our state legislature meets is to come up with more ways to kiss the gun lobby's ass. When the legislators run out of more and easier ways to arm more and more Arizonans, they turn their mischievous nature to other areas, like finding new and clever ways to violate the civil rights of our Hispanic residents.
Now the Arizona Legislature has branched off into a new way to waste time: birtherism. Yesterday a state House committee approved a measure sponsored by 40 (all Republicans) of the state's 90 House members that would require presidential candidates who want to appear on the ballot in Arizona to submit documents proving they meet the requirements to be President.
Yup, these goofballs will do anything to keep from having to address that boring old budget!
Just for the record you sun-addled desert racists, Barack Obama did present his birth certificate for public perusal, the state of Hawaii officially says he was born there, and newspaper announcements from 1961 in Hawaii announce his birth - there - in Hawaii. Also for the record, you goobers have absolutely no say in who may or may not run for President.
So why not set aside the cheap theatrics and turn your attention to what you are being paid to do: governing. Fix the budget! Maybe you should consider taxing guns, or ammunition, or stupidity. Those would all generate significant revenue in this state!
(Speaking of birthers, John McCain came out with a television ad today linking his primary opponent, J.D. Hayworth, with a pair of prominent birthers - the implication being that Hayworth is a whacko. Poor John has been away from Arizona too long. He has forgotten that real Arizonans like whackos!)
