Jan Brewer Chokes in Non-Fox News Gubernatorial Debate

September 2, 2010

(ChattahBox Political News)—-Jan Brewer, the demagoguing Republican Governor of Arizona, who just loves to hysterically scapegoat “illegals” while frequently appearing on Fox News’ On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, participated in her first televised gubernatorial debate last night with comical results. Brewer literally drew a blank during her opening statement, as she looked down at her crib notes probably scribbled with “illegals,” “beheadings,” “we’re overrun,” “drug mules,” “Do your job Barack Obama, secure our border.” For several seconds Brewer smiled broadly and giggled, yes giggled, as she looked into the camera saying nothing–absolutely nothing.

Brewer barely got the first sentence out of her mouth, before mumbling about bringing back Arizona from the “abyss,” before she choked and went silent for a very long uncomfortable 10 seconds. Be it stage fright, or her empty head just couldn’t function on air without the able assistance of her pal Greta Van Susteren–whatever the case, it was cringe-worthy.

Politico’s Ben Smith, says “Governor Jan Brewer’s opening statement in last night’s debate reflects either an amazing lack of preparation, or sheer panic.”

    Perhaps it’s the effects of drug use. After all, Brewer herself says that Arizona is overrun with illegal drugs; perhaps she speaks from personal experience.

    How did Miss Teen South Carolina end up as Arizona’s governor (and 100 years older)? And will someone wake up the Green candidate? I think he fell asleep after his opening statement.

    What a clown she is. She’s an idiot, too, but I guarantee that Republicans everywhere will still back her, b/c they want a bigoted racist in office to represent their bigoted racist beliefs.
