Dumb as I think Arizona’s S.B. 1070 is, my first reaction to news of the administration’s plans to sue to overturn it is that it’s not obvious to me that the federal government has standing to sue.

Any real lawyers wanna tell me what the deal is?

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Business Leaders Urge MLB to Keep All-Star Game in Phoenix

PHOENIX (May 13, 2010) — More than a dozen business leaders across Arizona are urging Major League Baseball’s commissioner to keep the 2011 All-Star Game in Phoenix.

Dear Kristina,

I’m sorry that a boycott is necessary, but unfortunately, hitting some people in the wallet seems to be the only way to get their attention. And, let’s face it, from this distance, calling for a boycott is about all the leverage over the state of Arizona that I can muster. So, no, I’m not going to reverse my call for a boycott unless/until Arizona’s law is enjoined/overturned by a state court or else repealed.

Here’s a clue: If Arizona doesn’t want to be considered a bunch of bigoted, anticonstitutional cobags, it might consider not acting like, well, bigoted, anticonstitutional cobags.

Y’all also might want to consider finding Joe Arpaio a job in the private sector. Just sayin’.

Sincerely,

Lex Alexander
