Palin on Arizona's Immigration Law

Isn't this rich:

“It's shameful, too, that the Obama administration has allowed this to become more of a racial issue by perpetuating this myth that racial profiling is a part of this law,” she [Palin] said.
This, coming from a woman who claims that a government program that reimburses doctors for the time they spend in a voluntary end of life counseling session with their patients constitutes a "death panel." There really is actually no comparison. The Arizona law clearly involves racial profiling. That is precisely its intent!!! Think about it. How could this law even be effective if there weren't profiling of potential "illegal immigrants," which common sense conveys that in Arizona this means Hispanics? You think a law enforcement official who pulls over a white driver or a black driver for a routine traffic stop will ask them for their "citizenship" documents beyond a driver's license, vehicle registration, and automobile insurance card? No way.

The only thing full of "myth" here is the world in which Sarah Palin lives.
