No Arizona Fries For You

In a move not too dissimilar to the refusal of some to eat "French fries" before the start of the Iraq war (even though these fries weren't produced in France or contain any French input material), some are now boycotting Arizona Iced Tea in response to Arizona's new anti-illegal immigrant law. One boycotter named Travy Nichols calling it "the drink of fascists" and another by the name of Jody Beth writing that "Dear Arizona: If you don't change your immigration policy, I will have to stop drinking your enjoyable brand of iced tea,".

It is not clear why Arizona would care if anyone boycotts that "fascist" drink, however, since it is made in New York State. Nor do these geniuses seem to realize that if you boycott Arizona, you boycott everyone in that state, including immigrants ( and opponents of the new law).
