#10  When asked on FoxNews, an AZ congresscritter JD (something) (R-Reality) said that he talked to the AZ Nat'l Guard Commander today and was told that the drama is bogus - they would not be doing one single thing differently than before this PR stunt.

#7  PR - nice photo op. What about publicly pressuring McCain to drop his bill with Kennedy allowing amnesty? Not up to that, is she? McCain is sooooo wrong on this. Kyl's the man

#6  Uppity New Mexicans. Heck, she doesn't need the Guard. The govenor could do more damage to NM by telling the California economic refugees to keep heading east to destroy her neighbors state by driving up land prices and implementing another social welfare state rather than in her own.

#5  She's only allowed to start a war with Sonora. Let's see if the National Guard deploys their supply of concertina wire on the border.

#4  Oh, the Mexican border. Damn, I was hoping AZ was going to give those uppity New Mexicans what they have coming to them. ;)

#3  I don't think state Governors are authorized to start wars, are they?

But surely they can act to stop invasions -- and clearly that is what's been happening along the southern border.
