first blood in the arizona immigration fight

 is drawn by a clinton-appointed federal district judge.  one of the arguments she makes is that
"The number of requests that will emanate from Arizona as a result of determining the status of every arrestee is likely to impermissibly burden federal resources and redirect federal agencies away from the priorities they have established..." 
so, in essence, democrats find themselves cheering the proposition that we won't bother enforcing laws if enforcement would be onerous.

i wonder whether they would support the proposition in other contexts.  my guess is that no effort would be spared if they could legally jail, say, tea-partiers.

what the media doesn't cover

ought to embarrass any self-respecting journalist.  it should be interesting to see what coverage, if any, develops of this story about quotas in the financial bill.  Drudge could force the issue, and he's already got a link.  No siren, though.

scott johnson at powerline posted earlier about this phenomenon.

'All of the Above'

Bill Whittle on Obama.
"Is Barack Obama:
A. A Muslim-sympathizing, neo-marxist true-believer, who sees America and capitalism as the principal barrier to fairness and world peace, or;
B.  Is he merely an empty suit, an unwitting pawn of much larger hidden forces, or:
C.  Simply a self-obsessed, incompetent, narcicist who happened to be at the right place at the right time.

... I've given this a lot of careful thought, and I think the real answer is ... 'Yes'."
