Jan Brewer, the far-right governor of Arizona whose anti-gay, anti-immigrant, anti-Obama agenda has been an embarrassment ever since President Obama's drafting of Janet Napolitano as Director of Homeland Security pulled the latter from office, has announced she'll retire at the end of her term.

Shockingly, kooky, right-wing Governor Jan Brewer of Arizona actually vetoed the kooky, right-wing legislature's kooky, right-wing birther bill after earlier calling it "interesting." She says:
"I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for president of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their 'early baptismal or circumcision certificates.' This measure creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona."
I guess Governor Brewer is trying to say she may be kooky and right-wing, but she ain't that kooky and/or ain't that right-wing. Good for her. I respect her for drawing this line in the sand, if for very little else.
This vile "have-did" of a woman is AHEAD in polls—by a LOT—to retain the governorship of Arizona. Please let that sink in:
If this facelifted airhead is going to fight false-tooth and Lee Press-On nail against immigration and for the preservation of the English language, she damn well should learn how to speak it herself someday. Even Sarah Palin would have to admit she don't talk good. More.
Governor Jan Brewer (R-Arizona) got all choked up over remarks that her pet immigration law (which DOES demand that anyone have papers to present if at any time a cop has reasonable suspicion her or she may be an illegal immigrant), saying:
"The Nazi comments...they are awful. Knowing that my father died fighting the Nazi regime in Germany, that I lost him when I was 11 because of that...and then to have them call me Hitler's daughter. It hurts. It's ugliness beyond anything I've ever experienced."
Except for the fact that her dad died a decade AFTER World War II. Of lung disease.
Sarah Palin, a failed former governor of Alaska, teamed up with Gov. Jan Brewer of Arizona to declare, "We are all Arizonans now!" in response to that state's contemptible new anti-immigration law, a law that clearly mandates racial profiling.
Well, not all of us. When Miss Oklahoma answered a question about the law tossed at her by The Office's Oscar Nunez, she replied that she is a big proponent of states' rights to hoots and hollers from the audience and said she supports Arizona's law. (But, um, like, she's against the racial profiling thingie.) This chick looked like a sure winner until then, but she lost to Miss Michigan, who was proudly pro-birth control, saying it should be free as part of every woman's health care and giggling, "Hi, Mom!" as she said so. Interestingly, Miss Michigan became the first-ever Arab-American Miss USA.
We're not all Arizonans. Not even all Arizonans are, not in this context.
Right-wing nutjob Jan Brewer, governor of Arizona thanks to President Obama's perhaps short-sighted poaching of then-governor Janet Napolitano, happily signed into law a measure that literally codifies racial profiling and racial discrimination. The law allows for the police to detain anyone suspected of being an illegal alien (based on visual cues alone) and demand paperwork.
Where are the fucking Teabaggers when people's rights are really being trampled, when big government gets so big it mirrors the infancy of Nazi party? I guess it's consistent with their worldview (sorry, stateview—they're not into thinking nationally, let alone globally) they don't care about "illegals," but it's also telling that they don't seem to care about the actual citizens whose rights will be trampled by this law. Because those citizens will look like illegal aliens. And do renegade Swedes look illegal? No.
(P.S. Some dick in the comments section at Towleroad decried liberals playing the race card...on a law in a state with a gigantic Hispanic population that makes it legal to look at someone and decide they seem illegal!)
Yet another crazy chick vying for the title of wingnuttiest woman in the U.S.A.: Arizona's Governor Jan Brewer has unilaterally ended domestic-partner rights for state employees, apparently because she feels God put her in that position to do so.
