Raising Arizona: Milwaukee Supervisors Need a Map To Learn It's a Border State

Thank God for You Tube, because there they go again.

As is fast becoming a national pastime, yet another busybody governing body discussed a measure to boycott Arizona. This time the culprits were the Milwaukee County Board of Supervisors.

But one board member, Peggy West, a proud Democrat, turned a boilerplate meeting into performance art. Apparently, Supervisor West, who is also a middle school mentor and a Mexican Fiesta volunteer, doesn’t have access to a map. This poor gal didn’t have a clue where the Grand Canyon state is located. (Does she even know that the Grand Canyon is in Arizona?)

She is exactly the kind of U.S. American, Miss South Carolina Teen USA, Lauren Caitlin Upton, must have had in mind, when the charmingly ditzy beauty queen attempted to explain why many citizens, of this fruited plain, are geographic illiterates.

Anyway, here’s Peggy West:

If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with – you know – with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would – say – I would have to look twice at this. But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border.

Watch the rest of a rambling presentation that is destined to make West as memorable an Internet celebrity as … well, as Upton.

In the end, fellow supervisor, Joe Rice, comes to the rescue of Arizona, politically and geographically. Way to go, Jose Arroz! You have given all law-and-order purists a reason to not boycott Milwaukee.

And, may I respectfully suggest, Ms. West, that you take your next vacation in Arizona. Say, a week in Nogales?
