The Stupid that Is Brian Bilbray

I've know Congressman Brian Bilbray (R-CA) for over a quarter of a century. We first met when he was mayor of Imperial Beach and trained lapdog to Congressman Duncan Hunter (the elder). I was disagreeing with Hunter on an issue of border pollution when Bilbray came up nipping at my heels. Not like a pitbull, more like a Shih Tzu threatening to pee on my foot. I've been on debate forums with Bilbray when he was on the San Diego County Board of Supervisors.

I know that Brian Bilbray is dumb. Not your run of the mill Republican dumb, he's Lloyd Christmas dumb. Brian Bilbray is so dumb it feels unfair to engage him in conversation.

Brian's latest venture into dumbness is his defense of the Arizona Anti-Hispanic Law.
They will look at the kind of dress you wear, there is different type of attire, there is different type of -- right down to the shoes, right down to the clothes. ~ Bilbray on Hardball
I'm hoping Brian isn't thinking the serape and sombrero stereotype. Although knowing Brian that is very possible. He's probably thinking of the day laborer stereotype of faded blue jeans and work boots.

Melanie Griffith or illegal alien? Only a trained Arizona law enforcement professional can tell the difference.

On a serious note. This new Arizona law will force everyone to carry their passport at all times within the state. To be properly enforced, the Arizona Highway Patrol will have to require proof of legal status at every traffic stop.

However, the intent of the law is that it not be properly enforced. The intent is to harass citizens with brown skin and Hispanic surnames. The intent is to relive Arizona history such as the Bisbee Deportation where Arizona law enforcement kidnapped and removed over a thousand workers, most American citizens, from the state claiming they were "aliens and enemies."
