It is about race...

NBC News has confirmed with a source familiar with the matter that Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Arizona, will endorse Rick Perry this week.

Arpaio will campaign with Perry in New Hampshire this week, the source said.

The Arizona sheriff is known as a vehement backer of tough immigration laws and was a vocal supporter of his own state's controversial enforcement laws.

Perry critics have described him as soft on immigration since the Florida debate, when he called opponents "heartless" for deriding his policy of in-state tuition for children of illegal immigrants in Texas.

If anyone thinks that the GOP campaign is about anything other than racism and classism, please, refute this.

We live in a funny (odd funny - not humorous funny) country. Perry made a fairly well reasoned statement about educating the children of illegal migrants in Texas--and for it he is being slammed by the far right. His solution for this is apparently to bring in a neanderthal thug to campaign along side him--in an attempt to now distance himself from previously espousing a rather rational thought.
