Few things make the Failed State of Arizona more worthy of its name than the fact that its legal occupants have voted four times to send the deeply, deeply stupid John McCain to the United States Senate. But now those voters are on the verge of replacing him with a far stupider Arizonan (there are many to choose from), so the senator has decided to go all flip-floppy on the "danged" border fence, and hope that nobody notices.

The Burro Hall Editorial Board has never wavered in our support for constructing a solid, impermeable barrier between us and the Failed State of Arizona. With that in mind, we hereby endorse the latest iteration of Maverick 2.0 for United Senate.

Update: Apparently the real maverick in this video is creepy looking bald guy, Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu. Pinal County is 115 miles from the border, but since the sheriff of the actual county where the ad was shot has been harshly critical of SB 1070, Babeu stepped up and agreed to play cop in a county where he is not, in fact, a cop, in support of a candidate who does not, in fact, believe any of the things he says in his own ad. Cynicism being a key ingredient in any failed state.
