The Arizona All-Stars:
Jan Brewer on the need for SB1070: "Our law enforcement agencies have found bodies in the desert either buried or just lying out there that have been beheaded,"

John McCain on the need to build the dang fence: "We are concerned about, particularly, areas down on the border where there is substantial evidence that some of these fires are caused by people who have crossed our border illegally,"

Jon Kyl on justifying tax cuts for the wealthy: “You do need to offset the cost of increased spending, and that's what Republicans object to. But you should never have to offset cost of a deliberate decision to reduce tax rates on Americans.”

Joe Arpaio on sending a deputy to Hawaii to find a birth certificate and Macadamia nuts: “It’s one deputy, so what? We have security issues, too, that I can’t got into. For six months we were not spending any money. When you’re doing investigations sometimes things change, you put more resources into it.”

Steve Smith (State Senator)on building his own fence along the Mexico border: “We have had a couple of great things come out of the private sector. Two of the top fence manufacturers in the world have already pledged support for either straight donating sections of the mile or giving it to us at cost. So again, there is a lot of moving parts here. We have construction companies in Arizona willing to put it up for free. We are going to use inmate labor to help dig the ditches and do all the trenching. We are paying for them anyways, we might as well put them to work. So we have got a lot of hands on deck here, and I think we can get it done.”

David Gowan (State Senator) on allowing concealed weapons in all public places including universities: "You don't know when a criminal is going to carry a gun anywhere.  That's the purpose of carrying a gun with you, to defend yourself."

Russell Pearce (ex-State Senator) on wishing to get all dark skinned people out of Arizona: "There is no provision in the 14th Amendment for the declaration of citizenship to children born here to illegal aliens."

Lori Klein (State Senator) On handguns after she pointed her weapon at a reporter in the capitol building: "I don't like chocolate ice cream.  Am I going to force you not to have any?" 

Ken Bennett (Secretary of State and Romney election co-chair):  “I’m not a birther.  I believe that the president was born in Hawaii — or at least, I hope he was.”

Scott Bundgaard (State Senator) at the scene of a roadside domestic fight with his EX girlfriend: "I demand you take these handcuffs off. I'm State Sen. Scott Bundgaard and according to Article 4 of the Constitution you cannot detain me. I'm immune from arrest when the Legislature is in session in which it currently is."

Jesse Kelly (Congressional candidate):  "It's not only illegal immigrants coming across. It's not only drugs. There are terrorists that come across that border."

JD Hayworth (former congressmen and radio talk show host): “Low unemployment numbers are clear indicators that Republican tax relief and economic policies are spurring growth and helping businesses hire new workers while providing American families with job security.”

And that’s just the first team.
