Apparently, it constitutes race baiting to mention Al Sharpton when criticizing the boycott of Arizona, according to Kevin Johnson, at ImmigrationProf Blog:

The Securetheborder.org website mentioned in Palin’s message includes the following “defense” of Arizona:

Also known as killing two birds with one stone.

The reaction to the Arizona Immigration law has been outlandish. While there are legitimate civil liberties concerns, as there are with many laws, the use of terms such as racist and Nazi to describe the law went beyond the pale.

Eric Holder agrees that there is no racist motivation behind the...

I saw a thread on Memeorandum linking to a ridiculous post, titled Bush, Slave Labor and Arizona, by the founder and Editor of BuzzFlash.com, Mark Karlin.

One of the arguments raised against the Arizona immigration law (in addition to it being the modern incarnation of Nazism) was that states had no authority under the U.S. Constitution to conduct their own immigration policies.

So I presume we will hear howls of constitutional outrage against New York Governor David Paterson,...
