The Last Laugh: San Diego concerned about losing tourists

Classic liberal moment. San Diego decides to "make a statement" about Arizona's new law and boycott the state. So what do the people of Arizona do? Give them a taste of their own medicine and boycott San Diego.

San Diego's response?

That has tourism officials urging Arizonans to consider the resolutions as merely symbolic and local politics at work.

That's was all for show. Please don't take the whole boycott thing seriously.

Then there is this classic hypocritical line from the president of San Diego Convention and Visitors, Joe Terzi;

"We're in a very tough environment already because of everything else going on, and we don't need another negative impact to our industry," ConVis President Joe Terzi told the Union-Tribune. "This affects all the hardworking men and women who count on tourism for their livelihoods, so we’re saying, don't do something that hurts their livelihoods."

So it's ok to boycott Arizona and affect all of those people's livelihoods, but not San Diego's.
