Damn the facts, false analogies are what makes us strong!

If there's one thing the right-wing can do well it's create a bunch of statements and loudly repeating them no matter how false.

Oh, and it always involves people of color. Meet exhibit infinity: and large, crime is down across the board. In Arizona as a whole, it has dropped 12 percent in the past seven years. But in major Maricopa County cities with their own police forces -- Phoenix, Mesa, Scottsdale and Tempe -- the rate has dropped even faster...

But all those illegal immigrants are coming into America like Yosemite Sam and shooting things up to undo what James K. Polk hath wrought making our borders so dangerous and unsecure, Lou Dobbs and various and sundry people have said so...very loudly. And we all know they who yell loudest win all arguments on the merits.

Oh, and hey look an exception that proves the principals being screamed so loudly:

...the more telling number may be the crime statistics for the portion of Maricopa County that is under the purview of controversial Sheriff Joe Arpaio. According to data compiled by America's Voice, crime in that area has actually increased 58 percent since 2002.

Those would be the man who has provided much of the policy embodied in Arizona's draconian immigration law. Clearly we know who will win this one in the court of FoxNews. Whoever is loudest.

Didn’t expect them to run on their record, did you? They’re bringing what they’ve got. Can't run on the Bush disaster, can't run on "The Party of Hell, No". They'll run against the Frito bandito.

In your guts, you know they’re nuts.
