"Gee, ya think?" headline of the day

After spending the last two days running from journalists and serving as the target of national ridicule for her performance during the Clean Elections debate on Wednesday, Jan Brewer has finally come clean about her oft-repeated claim that there were headless bodies in the Arizona desert.

From the Arizona Republic -
Brewer says she was wrong about beheadings
Now, lest a reader think that she issued a full "mea culpa" over her repeated attempts at fearmongering, here's the money quote -
"That was an error, if I said that," Brewer said about beheadings occurring in Arizona.

Here's the vid -

The relevent spouting starts at around the 37 second mark.

In her statement, she claimed to be pointing out that there was violence across the border with Mexico that could spill over and didn't mean that there was any in Arizona.

Read the article, and watch the interview she gave to Fox News.  She was completely unequivocal when she claimed that there were headless bodies found in Arizona.

Vote for Terry Goddard for Governor.
