Quote of the Day

From my man Mike over at Blog for Arizona, this gem:

"And both [GOP drug policy and GOP immigration policy] represent the fundamentally brain-dead approach to governing that conservatives so often adopt: use government to try to simply ban anything you don't like, and punish the crap out of anyone who steps out of line. They choose such policies primarily because they are conceptually simple and familiar, symbolically and rhetorically powerful even when ineffective, and place the costs of the policy squarely on the least powerful in our society." [Emphasis added.]

And that's a wrap!
