Gov. Janet Napolitano said Wednesday she is prepared to use state money to send National Guard troops to the Arizona-Mexico border to crack down on illegal immigration if the Pentagon declines to pick up the bill.The blinders of the Republican establishment on the illegal immigration issue will contribute to their '06 losses and may hold the key in '08. Why? By not going after the problem, they are alienating their base, and loosing the national-security fence sitters.
You can nit-pic the Gov.'s motives all you want, but the Republican's tee'd the ball up for her. Who wouldn't swing?
