The ad says Whitman's "the Republican who opposed the Arizona law and opposed Proposition 187." It does not point out that she's also the Republican who claimed she didn't use images of a border fence in her ads, even though she did. It also doesn't point out that Whitman still opposes immigration reform and the naturalization of currently undocumented immigrants.
So once this bullying snob is governor, she will not support racial profiling, but she will also not support any action being taken to help illegal immigrants become legal. I think Mickey Kaus' immigration position is better thought-out.
