Milwaukee County Supervisor Peggy West recently made a complete ass of herself at a debate on the boycotting of Arizona Immigration law SB1070.

In case you didn’t catch that – her stupid ass just justified her reason to boycott the law based on the fact that Arizona does not share a border with Mexico (seriously). Pointlessly boycotting a law is bad enough, but you’d think she would have something prepared to say to state her case. Instead she flew by the seat of her pants and was left with them sitting around her ankles. I know the high school graduation rate in Milwaukee is hardly pushing 50%, but god damn, I think even Paris Hilton would know Arizona borders Mexico (probably not, but you get the point). West did try to backtrack later by saying she meant that Texas had a longer border, and thus would have a bigger reception to the fact that there is a problem here. Sorry, Peg, you’re an idiot and now the whole world will know just how unprepared and uneducated you are. Your job was to research this law and boycott it intelligently – you did neither. You can now return to Reading People and watching soap operas, because it seems obvious that’s all your intelligence level allows you to accomplish.┬áRegardless of where you stand on this, I think everybody has to agree that if you are trying to argue for or against something, it might be important to know at least the most basic facts surrounding the cause. The best part – she’s elected, folks. Chosen by the people to make inane, retarded statements to the people.

I wish I could lay waste to this dipshit, I really do, but I have to give credit where credit is due. Somebody has beaten me to the punch, and I feel it imperative to bring to you a beat down of epic proportions. Arizona Senator, Jon Kyl, sent Peggy West a letter explaining to her basic geography. I can not do it any better justice so I’ll give it to you verbatim here.

The Honorable Peggy West
Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors
Milwaukee County Courthouse

Dear Supervisor West:
I understand that, when speaking about Arizona’s new immigration law at a Supervisors’
meeting recently, you said:
“If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they
were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with
undocumented people flooding the borders, I would have to look twice at this. But this is
a state that is a ways removed from the border.”
You will be interested to learn that Arizona does indeed share a border with Mexico. I
have enclosed a map for your convenience.
I hope you will take the time to actually read the Arizona law before formulating an
opinion about it and become familiar with our country’s geography and the challenges that our
border states face.

Included in this public belittlement was a map that Senator Kyl so graciously filled out to illustrate for Ms. West exactly what she should have known since 2nd grade.

Yeah, this actually happened. It makes me feel good to know that other people out there have the balls to say what should be said, and in this case – people with the power to make it heard on a scale as large as this. Senator Jon Kyl – thank you.
