First off, some Dems have come to their senses and are speaking up that the US should not sue Arizona. But further down in the article is this:
Sen. Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., took it upon himself to teach Milwaukee (Wis.) County Supervisor Peggy West a little about U.S. geography.
While discussing a possible boycott of Arizona over the immigration law, West on Thursday suggested she might be more comfortable with the measure if it had been enacted by Texas, which borders Mexico.
"But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border," West said of Arizona.
West later acknowledged misspeaking, but Kyl couldn't resist needling her with a letter - and a map.
"You will be interested to learn that Arizona does indeed share a border with Mexico," Kyl wrote Friday. "I have enclosed a map for your convenience. I hope you will take the time to actually read the Arizona law before formulating an opinion about it..."

And so it goes. We have people in innocuous positions making decisions about such important things and she doesn't even have a rudimentary understanding of the basic geography (or so it seems). I think we should support the states in our union instead of using them to further our own personal agendas as some are doing. Bravo for Sen. Kyle.
