Idiot of the Week: Jan Brewer

Yeah, I'm sure you saw this coming. Some weeks, this is just too damn easy.

Idiot of the Week goes to Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer. Before this, she was known primarily for her "papers please" law. After her performance in the gubernatorial debate, I cannot imagine that she will be known for anything else.

I have to confess that I have watched this clip at least 10 times. It is priceless! "We have did what was right for Arizona."

On a serious note, I would expect that a performance like this would be more than enough to end a political career. And yet, I know full well that it won't be. If Sarah Palin is any indication, Brewer's blank state, uncomfortable giggling, and maniacal stare will simply endear her to enough voters to earn re-election. And we wonder why our elected officials often seem so ineffective and untrustworthy!
