      To compare a sherriff's election in Arizona to the Cuban presidential election is beyond disengenuous.

      He wins because the elderly Snowbirds in his county are terrified of brown people, and in November they are a majority.

      Minority rights should never be subject to majority vote.

      •  You are obviously not familiar with AZ politics (0+ / 0-)

        and who controls things in this state.  If I'm not mistaken, the term "Snowbirds" refers to out of staters who winter in AZ, and who don't necessarily live and vote here.
