    state of Arizona is hell-bent on recruiting either Herman Cain or Allen West to run for Governor.  Of course, the gentlemens' birth certificates will have to be verified, as they are both "colored" and may be of Kenyan extract.

      this might actually be more appealing to Herman. He is actually from the state (no verification troubles there) and, to put it bluntly, Senator is an easier job with as big a paycheck.

      We need to avoid falling into the trap of generalizing from something one or a handful of wingnuts proposes that has zero chance of happening. I got an email this morning where the other side is going this to raise panic (screeching about the introduction of a bill to eliminate presidential term limits so OBAMA CAN STAY IN OFFICE) when the same congressman has done it every session since Clinton was in office, including four times while Bush was president, and it's never gone anywhere.

      I doubt most Arizonans are interested in a black carpetbagger. They are interested in these guys for one thing: so they can point and say "See, we're not racist."

      Jon Husted is a dick.
