    Don't get me wrong - I have zero sympathy for those ignorant t-baggers.

    Even if running on fear and hate eventually backfires, as it is in this case, it still causes damage.  We don't need a big resentful ignorant poorly-educated white population in Arizona who hate Mexican Americans for the next two generations.  We're still trying to overcome that legacy of Jim Crow.  

    The idea that our diversity is our strength is a thing of beauty.  To run campaigns that undermine that... well, it scares me, makes me sad, makes me angry.  Yes, the GOP will pay for it.  But I wish we could beat them in other ways, I wish it didn't come to this.
