Quote of the Week

"[W]here was the Tea Party crowd? Isn't the whole premise of the Tea Party movement that overreaching government poses a threat to individual freedom? It seems to me a law allowing individuals to be detained and interrogated on a whim -- and requiring legal residents to carry identification, as in a police state -- would send the Tea Partyers into apoplexy. Or is there some kind of exception if the people whose freedoms are being taken away happen to have brown skin and speak Spanish?" -- Eugene Robinson in today's Kaplan Daily, on the racial profiling immigration law recently passed by extremist right-wingers in the Arizona legislature.
