And That’s The Deal My Dear

I'm probably making more of this Arizona anti-immigration law than I ought to.  As I wrote before, the thing just won't survive all the constitutional challenges that are sure to come in court.

But on the off-chance that the Arizona law survives legal battles, it's still facing another tough opponent:

Colombian-born pop star Shakira will meet with the mayor of Phoenix this week to help campaign against a new Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration, a member of the mayor's staff said on Tuesday.

The Grammy-winning singer-songwriter will speak with Mayor Phil Gordon, a strong critic of the new law, and other city officials on Thursday afternoon, a spokesman for the mayor said.

Shakira, best known for her hit singles "Hips Don't Lie" and "Whenever, Wherever," was also expected to meet with families who could be affected by the Arizona law.

NOW you've done it, Arizona!  You've rankled the sensibility of Shakira and her mighty ass.

May God have mercy on your soul.
