AltTulsa's recent reading has included a Harper's piece called "Tea Party in the Sonora" by Washington editor Ken Silverman.
Silverman's profile of Arizona politics sheds light on the stupidity of Tea Party politics. It's not pretty. Our favorite line describes the Arizona legislature as "composed almost entirely of dimwits, racists and cranks."
With this sort of political leadership, it's little wonder that Arizona is on the hunt for illegal aliens. Oh, and the state's financial situation: Bad, terrible really.
To put it mildly, the Tea Party in Arizona is wrecking much of Arizona's public sector, for which the citizens of that state will pay a steep price. They just don't know it yet.
