Bill McCollum performs rare triple-backflip on immigration

In case you missed it in this Naked Politics post from Friday about where Florida’s Cuban-American lawmakers stand on Arizona’s “show me your papers” law, which both major Republican candidates for governor not only support, but say they’d like to impose on Florida, making this state a pariah just like Jan Brewer’s Juan Crow Nation, Bill McCollum has managed to rejigger his position on the law yet again…

By the way, McCollum softened his stance on the Arizona law today. Yesterday, his statement said, “If the federal government fails to secure our borders and solve the problem of illegal immigration, I would support a similar law for Florida.” Today, he told the St. Petersburg Times, “We’re not like Arizona. We don’t have the border problems. So I don’t anticipate any need for a law like Arizona’s.”

Meanwhile, Freddy Krueger is up with yet another ad, this one attacking President Obama for um … telling an Arizona joke at the WHCD. Seriously. And yeah, he’s still creepy as hell …
