To you, opposition Arizona's Law SP1070 may seem like a no-brainer with which all rational people in the country should be on board.
You, however, are probably misunderestimating the sheer number of no brains we have in this country. (Hint: There's a lot of no brains.)
Half of Americans reject President Barack Obama's lawsuit against Arizona's controversial immigration law, with only a third supporting the move, according to a Gallup poll released Friday… Nearly eight in 10 Republicans (79 percent) opposed the lawsuit, while 56 percent of Democrats were in favor of the Obama administration's decision…
"The Obama administration is sailing against the tide of public opinion in its efforts to block the law, although members of Obama's own party certainly support the administration," Gallup said.
Do you know what people were also strongly opposed to back in the day? A law that made it it illegal to murder puppies for sport. (Not really.) For real! (Not for real.) In fact, there was an entire industry (no, there was not) built around the practice of murdering puppies for no good reason. And the puppy-murdering lobbyists (never existed) fought tooth-and-nail to keep that law (that did not exist) off the books. Now, we barely even think about about the puppy-murdering controversy. (That part is actually true.)
Think about it. (Don't bother.)
