Sarah Says to B-ballers "Go Rogue in Arizona"!

When I was out surfing the web, and I saw the story about the Chicago suburb girls' basketball team not allowed to play in a tournament in Arizona because of their softy southpaw school superintendent bureaucrat, I knew those would be "fightin' words" to Madame.,just as she said in her speech in the Windy City last night. What?! The school let students go to China where there are horrible human rights violations, but they can't go to Arizona?!? Last night, BOTUS sent out the warning tweets, and I knew it was only just a matter of time before Madame and I would go to work on a Facebook post.

Not only did Madame support the team, she also slammed the Great Opologizer's lack of border security:
These boycotts of Arizona will not help the state or lead to positive change. Economic and political boycotts of our nation’s 48th state will hurt all Arizonans – including all members of the Hispanic community. If people really want to help, they should tell President Obama to do his job: secure the border. If he were to do his job, the good people of Arizona, who have been overwhelmed by violence on their border, would not feel compelled to do it for him.
Ouch, that had to leave a mark, but I'm sure Madame's future Homeland Security secretary, Jan Brewer, appreciated it. We also did something new. We linked to a Facebook group to support the girls!

Today, just before we posted this note, Madame and BOTUS made a call into Megyn Kelly's show. I've embedded their stellar work here:
