My opponent is a racist but I am tough on the border too.

BorderPatrol.jpg      Gabrielle Giffords is taking a cue from the Huffman campaign and is now running a fix the border ad. She may be walking right into the same trap that Steve set for himself. Now that she admits the border is a valid issue her dismal record in the state legislature on illegal immigration is in play.

     Her other conundrum is that if it is OK for her to support “Tough new border security” then it must be OK for her opponent, Randy Graf, to do the same. She even has a graphic in her ad that says “Illegal Immigration up 45%” – Dept of Homeland Security 8/06. I think Gabby just legitimized Graf’s main campaign theme. And Graf has a much better record on the issue than she does.

     Jeff Smith over at the Tucson Citizen wrote a nice little attack piece on Graf. I wonder if now considers Gabby a racist as well since she is also talking about illegal immigration and border security.

    The Jeff Smith column is a worry for Graf. It points out the many similarities between Randy and Joe Sweeney, and it comes from an outspokenly gun-toting, border-dwelling Republican columnist, one who has been canned by every liberal paper in the region for infuriating their readers.

    Meantime, Arizona Congress Watch points out the fact that KKK Kleagle David Duke has used his website to highlight the Graf primary win, and to promote his candidacy.

    At the same moment, the federal probe into the actual whereabouts of hundreds of thousands in donations to the Minuteman Project proceeds.

    Whether it is natural, appropriate, or even advantageous for Christian pro-life conservatives to associate themselves with anti-Semitism, racism, and possible fraud through a non-profit 501-C-3 organization, will make an interesting talking point in the weeks ahead.

    Meantime, if you haven’t seen it, take a look at

    By your analogy if Saddam Hussein would prefer that Al Gore or John Kerry were president than it would make both of them anti-Semitic lunatics that support brutal dictatorships.
