Prediction: Clarence Dupnik will lose his next election.
Via Ace of Spades and Mediate, here’s is Tuscon Sheriff Dupnik’s… sub-optimal… interview with Megyn Kelly. Pay close attention to his commentary at about 5:15, where he implicitly blames the attempted assassination of Congresswoman Giffords on the Chinese.
…when millions of dollars are filtered into this country to buy very vitriolic ads, and they don’t have to identified, the countries that they’re coming from or the people who are donating them…
As has been mentioned lately, this particular line of conspiracy theory nonsense is endemic among the progressive Left, as illustrated by Ms. Carol Shea-Porter: but that’s not exactly the same (as also illustrated by Ms. Shea-Porter) as “a proven election winner.” Quite the opposite, in fact: as Dupnik will no doubt discover next year. If the Arizona GOP can’t make a case for replacing a man in his late seventies who threatened to taint a critical federal murder case through hasty partisan – and, frankly, somewhat paranoid – speculation, then they might as well give up now.

PS: Ms. Kelly took this guy apart without raising her voice, and the best part is that Dupnik won’t realize just how badly he flubbed this until the first campaign commercials run. Perhaps he’ll blame it all on the Belgians? – It’s been a while since they had a turn.
PPS: Please, by all means: the Left should give him money.
