Politics for Dummies, Jan Brewer Edition

Click comic to ENLARGE.

Wednesday night's Arizona gubernatorial debate was only an hour long, but it contained what Governor Jan Brewer called "the longest 16 seconds of my life".

And rightly so. Brewer, like the other candidates given one minute to introduce herself and her platform, spent 16 seconds of that time in silence, presumably trying to figure out either who she is or what she stands for.

A report on the incident, as well as video of the entire hour-long debate is here in the Tucson Sentinel, and a clip of Brewer's Mute Minute is here on YouTube.

Sadly, Brewer's inability to prepare even a 60 second summary of her position probably won't matter to her election chances. She's the one who signed Arizona Senate Bill 1070 into law this past April, so she's feelin' the love from the Guns & God crowd.

In the last four months Jan Brewer has been caught lying, three times and counting.

The comments made on June 16, 2010, and June 27, 2010, clearly indicates that the Brewer says that immigrants are beheading people in the United States desert. She first ran away from the question and the press when confronted with the question. She finally when to FOX/ FAKE News to recant her lie.

When Brewer was confronted with the fact the two of her top Advisors (Paul Senseman, Chuck Coughlin) are lobbyist for “Private Prisons” giant CCA she first ran away from the question and the press.

In an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that her father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. Do you see a trend here?

Brewer signed into law SB 1070 Bill (Did she even read it?), lied about the crime rates in AZ (even Janet Napolitano knows that all crimes rates went down), and now we find out that she is in the pockets of PRIVATE PRISONS who stand to benefit with the increase Federal jailing, and thus they will pay her back, I wonder if it has to do anything about the fact that her son was transferred to a brand new prison, he was convicted for rape and sexual assault, I guess the fruit does not fall far the tree.

“Private Prisons Lie”

“AZ Crime Rates”

“Father Lie”

If only voters cared, Benito. Sadly, they don't.
