This guy again

Larry Darby, who wants the Democratic nomination for Alabama attorney general, is all about border security.

The state's border, that is. Darby, who attended what he called an "Anti-Mexican Invasion Rally" last weekend, says the governor should "declare martial law so as to establish checkpoints on Alabama's borders to stop additional invaders from entering our state." He's also all for an interstate agreement to use National Guard troops to send "the prisoners of war back to Mexico."

Darby is the same guy who last month referred to the Civil War as "the War for Southern Independence." He's also the same guy who said no more than 70,000 Jews died in the Holocaust and that the Supreme Court had no right to order school desegregation.

Not only has Mobile County District Attorney John Tyson, Jr., not done any of those things, but he also has years of experience running one of Alabama's busiest prosecutor's offices. As an added bonus, he's shown that he's not afraid to keep public officials in line. Tyson would make a fine AG, and he deserves your support if you plan to vote in the Democratic primary.

Tyson also made the trip to Birmingham to speak at the Over the Mountain Democrats' picnic on Saturday, where the themes for almost all the speakers were experience, competence, and inclusiveness. He is quite impressive, and he'll certainly get my vote.

I am very excited about Mr. Tyson's candidacy. He has done amazing things in Mobile to prevent crime by implementing programs to help keep kids in school. That kind of vision could make a big difference at the state level.
