Napolitano Didn't Read Arizona Law Either

Why is it that government officials, past or present, seem to be so helpless? For example, the glib and personable former Illinois governor, Rod Blagojevich, got fired on The Celebrity Apprentice because he couldn't type on a laptop or figure out how to send e-mail. Now, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano, who has joined with her colleague Eric Holder in bashing Arizona's immigration law, admits that she--like Holder--didn't read the law either. Moreover, as Arizona governor, Napolitano only gave lip service to border security so it comes as no surprise that it's "not the kind of law" that she would have signed.

And here is a link to the full text of the law as well as the governor's related executive order.
