Full credit goes out to Blog for Arizona's David Safier for unearthing this gem, from the Yellow Sheet:

Still stewing over the Pearce recall, Antenori told our reporter yesterday he’s meeting with Republican activists on Friday to plan revenge. So far, he said his plan is to wait until after the 2012 election so he can identify two vulnerable Democrat lawmakers — and then pounce. “We’re going to get a bunch of folks organized, and we’re going to do a recall,” said Antenori, adding he planned to abuse the recall provision reserved for malfeasance and corruption the same way it was employed to remove Pearce. “Absurdity to demonstrate the absurd,” said the lawmaker...

Not mentioned in the brief article:

1. Whether Antenori, who is "exploring" a run for Congress, would be too busy as a sitting congressman for an elaborate revenge plot.

2. If Pearce was so popular and representing his district so well, why would voters be so eager to pick someone else to hold the job?

3. Whether revenge is the sort of behavior befitting a state senator.
