2010 Liberal Jackass Quotes of the Year - #2

Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West  (Geography Major)

"If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding the borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border."

- The state in question is Arizona...The "measure" in question is the new Arizona immigration law.

"You will be interested to learn Arizona does indeed share a border with Mexico. I have enclosed a map for your convenience. I hope you will take the time to read the Arizona law before formulating an opinion about it and become familiar with our country's geography and the challenges that our border state faces." - Sen. Jon Kyl (letter sent to Peggy)

That about says it all...Here's a better quote, however: "It is better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt." - Mark Twain

All doubt has been removed, indeed.

When County Supervisor West let loose with this pearl of wisdom, in June, I was sure she would be claiming the crown for '2010 Liberal Jackass Quote of the Year'...But no.  There is an even more deserving jackass, and Peggy has to settle for the '#2' that she is.

    Gosh, I'm all a-flutter! Who will it be? What insipid jackassery will be unveiled?

    It should be obvious, especially if you do deduction by who's already listed.
