Arizona 'be heading' in wrong direction under Brewer

Posted July 14, 2010 | 22:11:27 (EST)

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's fact-twisting and fear-mongering continued this week as she repeated her unfounded claims about beheadings and violence in Arizona.

Is Brewer Replacing Palin as Fox News darling?

Posted June 18, 2010 | 11:01:47 (EST)

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer seems to be replacing Sarah Palin as Fox News' right-wing darling du jour. Brewer was just interviewed -- again -- for Fox News, making this at least the 5th time Fox has pitched softball questions at Brewer since she signed SB1070.

Jan Brewer and other out-of-touch officials continue to make Arizona famous for all the wrong reasons.

Brewer and Palin: Border Confusion (VIDEO)

Posted May 20, 2010 | 11:00:03 (EST)

If Gov. Jan Brewer is so serious about the border crisis, then why are her "solutions" always publicity stunts? She admitted on TV that SB1070 "has nothing to do with securing the border." And bringing in Sarah Palin to unveil a website to nowhere?

Brewer's serious all...

Brewer Going Rogue in Arizona? You Betcha

Posted May 17, 2010 | 19:08:41 (EST)

Instead of bringing us real leadership on Arizona's border-security problems, Gov. Jan Brewer brought us Sarah Palin, a leader on ... um... seeing Russia's border from Alaska.

Arizona's New Immigration Law Is a Sham, and That's Just Fine by Republicans

Posted April 27, 2010 | 21:32:21 (EST)

Greetings from Arizona, where we have a brand new immigration law. It's been called many things, a few of them even printable. But here's what I call that law: a sham.
