Russell Pearce is a bigot and fool. No big surprise, considering the area he represents. But my thanks to Rep. Patterson for speaking truth to ignorance. One the remarkable characteristics of Senator Pearce and the sort of people he represents is their great pride in their own stupidity and lack of knowledge.

Bi-partisanship is something which Repubs highly value - as long as they are in the minority.
Considering the lock that right wing nutjobs have on the State Legislature, I don’t know why our Dem Representatives bother even making the commute to Phoenix.
To make it worse, we seem to have developed our own home grown wingnut in the new State Senator Antenori.
