I’ve started coming up with the images for the site’s banner by asking someone for a single word. I do a quick Google image search for that word, and then pick an image for the banner from the results.

Over the weekend, I asked our good friend Claire for a word. She chose “xenophobe,” which is why Joe Arpaio, the sheriff of Arizona’s Maricopa County, is in the banner this week.

Joe Arpaio: Xenophobe

Insanely appropriate,

Indeed,

…and Republican Rep. Carl Seel.

McCarthy’s still alive, well and living in Arizona,

-Shady

so don’t believe anything that comes out of his fat lying mouth.

You should email him and remind him that he’s a liar. I just did.

Just another waste of life from Arizona,

-Shady

No shit.

Yet another reason to avoid Arizona until she’s gone,

Three weeks ago we were talking about this bill; today, it’s this bill.

Wow.

Avoid Arizona like the plague, folks. I hope Selig pulls next year’s MLB All-Star Game from your ass.

Declaring war on Arizona,

…two three-day weekends to be exact, so we thought we’d take a couple of short road trips. We had two separate destinations in mind: The Grand Canyon and Tombstone; two awesome ideas for quick little getaways.

And then we realized that both destinations are located in the state of Arizona. If you remember, late last week Arizona governor Jan Brewer signed a racist bill into state law. Click here to learn more.

In protest of this bill several cities and states have launched boycotts against the state of Arizona, encouraging citizens not to spend one penny in the state until the bill is killed. And so, instead of the Grand Canyon and Tombstone, Kathy and I will be heading to Napa Valley and Catalina Island.

If you’re not from Arizona but have the potential to spend money within the state, don’t. If you’re from Arizona and think this bill is an atrocity, write Governor Brewer and let her know:

The Dishonorable Jan Brewer
Governor of Arizona
1700 West Washington
Phoenix, Arizona
85007

Putting Arizona in a fiscal choke hold,

The bill–which essentially gives police carte blanche to do as they will with non-citizens (to be read: “Mexicans”)–requires local police officers to question people about their immigration status, allows lawsuits against government agencies that hinder enforcement of immigration laws, and makes it illegal to hire illegal immigrants for day labor.

In related news, Brewer’s maid, landscaper, nanny, chef, chauffeur, pool boy, masseuse, personal assistant and secretary mysteriously disappeared late Friday.

Impeach Brewer,

-Shady

Old Poop!
