Arizona not a border state, or something

“Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” –Mark Twain

The Arizona Boycottapalooza lunacy has generated some humorous moments. (more here, here and here) The Milwaukee County Board was debating whether or not to boycott Arizona when geographically-challenged Supervisor Peggy West argued that she would support a boycott because Arizona is “a ways removed from the border.” Huh?

There was an odd moment during the debate when Supervisor Peggy West stood up and seemed to be confused about her geography.  “If this was Texas, which is a state that is directly on the border with Mexico, and they were calling for a measure like this saying that they had a major issue with undocumented people flooding their borders, I would have to look twice at this.  But this is a state that is a ways removed from the border,” West said during debate.
