City Councilwoman Claims Arizona Does Not Border Mexico

Look! A map!
San Francisco garnered a lot of attention when it was early to the bandwagon to boycott Arizona over that state's draconian immigration policies (but not the first; Oakland beat San Francisco to the punch while the City By The Bay dawdled). Say what you will about the city's eventual boycott -- challenge level: You can't use the words "toothless" or "symbolic" --  and its architect, Supervisor David Campos. But you can't question that Campos, Mayor Gavin Newsom and others at least can find Arizona on a map.

Sadly, the same can't be said for pro-boycott Milwaukee councilwoman Peggy West, who notes that The Grand Canyon State is "a ways removed from the border" with Mexico. Video after the jump. Groan.
