Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer — who, several months ago, promised not to work with President Obama on immigration reform — comments on not being invited to the President's immigration summit…
"You would have thought one of the governors would have been invited, since we are on the front lines fighting for security there. It was a little bit of a snub, if you will."
To be fair, she didn't want to actually participate. But it would have been nice to get a chance to refuse, ya know?

You didn't believe them when they said state-run death panels were coming to America! You laughed at their supposedly-baseless Cassandra-like warnings of lives being coldly discarded by heartless government employees!
Well, don't you look silly now…
It is a decision by Arizona Governor Jan Brewer to stop funding for some organ transplants as the state struggles to reduce a yawning budget deficit…
The measure enacted last October by Brewer trimmed spending on Medicaid, the federal-state health insurance program, to help close a projected 2012 budget deficit of $1.15 billion.
It eliminated coverage for transplants including lung, heart, liver and bone marrow after weighing the success and survival rates for certain transplant procedures.
Good idea! I wonder how many dollars they'll save per human life destroyed. What is the going rate for humanity these days anyway? I don't mean the important prenatal form, but the useless post-born poor-people kind.

A brand new model of Republican politics is emerging this election cycle, it seems. Here's how it works:
Step 1: Wait for something stupid and/or corrupt from your past to turn up.
Step 2: Get all dickhurt, blame the press and refuse to answer any more questions ever.
Step 3: Get elected to important public office.
Joe Miller did work with Sarah Palin, so he's studied with the master…
Republican Senate nominee Joe Miller said Monday he will not answer any more questions about his personal background for the rest of the campaign. "We've drawn a line in the sand. You can ask me about background, you can ask me about personal issues — I'm not going to answer," Miller said.
Miller made the statement to reporters following Monday's Anchorage Chamber of Commerce candidate forum at the Dena'ina Center. Standing with his wife, Kathleen, Miller delivered a seven-minute address in which he complained he had been mistreated by the Alaska news media and announced he would no longer be answering personal questions. He took no questions, then quickly left down a nearby stairwell.
Okay, not entirely. But just imagine how far she'd be behind if she was talking to the press.

On last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart discussed the latest news regarding the midterms, including Arizona Governor Jan Brewer's embarrassing debate performance. Jon suggested Brewer froze up because the guy from Quantum Leap was entering her body, which makes a lot of sense, especially if you believe, as I do, that Colorado Governor Bill Ritter is Manimal.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.
