Officials in the "highly tourism-dependent" and "completely broke-ass" state of Arizona get really upset when anyone suggests that folks might want to vacation elsewhere until the state scraps a racist and likely unconstitutional new law that authorizes the police to stop and question anyone who appears to be an illegal immigrant. To justify the law Arizona's defenders are going on national TV and claiming that Arizona—"The Sunburned Cracker State"—is being overrun by thieves, terrorists, murderers, and rapists pouring into the state from Mexico.

So people who disapprove of Arizona's racist new law are going to vacation elsewhere because of the racist new law. And people who approve of Arizona's racist new law are going to vacation elsewhere because of the alarmist, misleading, and untrue rationalizations right-wingers are trotting out to justify Arizona's racist new law.

Unless, of course, all the geezergolfers out there watching Fox News think to check in with the liberal blogs that are calling bullshit—crime is flat along the border and down in Phoenix—before they cancel their plans to visit Arizona this winter.
