So much for the Straight Talk Express

Arizona is fixing to pass the toughest law in the land to combat illegal aliens.

A bill empowering police to arrest illegal immigrants and charge them with trespassing for simply being in the state of Arizona, is likely just weeks away from becoming the toughest law of its kind anywhere in the country.

Already passed by the state's Senate and currently being reconciled with a similar version in the House, the bill would essentially criminalize the presence of the 460,000 illegal immigrants living in the state

Of course what makes this newsworthy is that the Maverick himself, the Straight Talk Express, one the primary sponsors of lagislation to give amnesty to illegals three years ago now has no opinion on this.

McCain is in the midst of one of the toughest primary campaigns of a lengthy career in politics

McCain, who once back a bipartisan effort to grant illegal immigrants amnesty, has deflected questions about whether he supports the legislation.

It's got to be killing McCain to actually have to pretend to be a Republican just to get through this primary.
