Well now we know for certain that our de facto governor, "King" Russell Pearce, really is the governor of Arizona because our lame-duck governor Jan Brewer is off to Alaska on a northern exposure vacation — in the middle of the legislative session, leaving the lunatics to run the asylum, and no budget in sight. Is this what we pay her for? Maybe you should sign one of those recall petitions circulating around the state.
Gryphen at the The Immoral Minority blog was kind enough to send BforAZ this update on Governor Grim Reaper's excellent Alaska adventure:
Go ahead and blink a couple of times and wipe away the sleep dust, just so you can be sure that you are indeed seeing what your eyes tell you they are seeing. Yes that is Arizona Governor Jan Brewer at the start of the Iditarod in Anchorage, with none other than a vaguely bearded Todd Palin.
"Gosh Todd, tell that Quitta from Wasilla wife of yours that she can find her "death panels" in Arizona. 'Governor Grim Reaper' is bringin' it! I have condemned 98 organ transplant patients to almost certain death, and I'm working on kicking another 250,000 deadbeats off of Medicaid. By the time I'm done with them, 1.3 million Arizonans will be without any health insurance at all. Tell your Alaska Disasta wife to top that!" As many Arizonans struggle with rising health-insurance premiums, nearly 1.3 million face no insurance at all.
Yep, we have so much to be proud of here in Arizona.
