Heaven forbid Tom Tancredo could have ever allowed himself to look like a voice of sanity on this extreme Arizona immigration law.

Tancredo: I Always Thought AZ Immigration Was A Good Law!:

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo doesn't want you to get the wrong idea -- he never thought the Arizona immigration law went too far.

On MSNBC today, Tancredo (R-CO) clarified that though he said he does not want people in Arizona "pulled over because you look like you should be pulled over," he wasn't saying that he's against the law. Because, he said, "that is not the law."

"I like the law," said Tancredo, adding that "the fact is that it's a good law. I think that Arizona needed to do it."

He continued that he did say he would never vote for a law that required people to be pulled over for looking a certain way, but he had also said that the Arizona law doesn't require that, and his remarks were taken out of context.
