Jan Brewer's new campaign slogan?

From the Arizona Republic (emphasis mine) -

Arizona job-loss estimate not as bad as expected
Thanks to federal stimulus money and better-than-expected hiring in some sectors, Arizona is now predicted to lose only about 1 percent of its jobs this year, the state Department of Commerce said Thursday.

Expect a slew of press releases from Jan Brewer, Governor and Jan Brewer, Candidate for Governor touting this news in a "See?!? Arizona isn't in as bad a condition as we thought it would be! Vote for meeeeeee!!!!!" sort of way.

And expect all of those press releases to conveniently leave out the bit about federal stimulus money contributing to the stabilization of AZ's economy.  Or that Brewer and the Rs in the AZ Congressional delegation strongly opposed the federal stimulus package.

Help put Arizona back on the path of sanity and competence - Vote for Terry Goddard.

Yeah, yeah - I know that "sanity and competence" isn't the most electrifying phrase in politics these days, but it's the truth.

I like (sarcasm here) her radio ad. A polished announced does most of it, and she comes in at the end and says (as if reading a script), "I've brought 1000s of jobs to Ariona, stimulated the economy by reducing the tax burden on businesses, and secured our border, etc." Paraphrasing a bit, but you get the idea.

No wonder voters are cynical. Most advertising is hogwash.

What did that famous food writer say? Don' buy any food that is advertised on TV? Because broccoli doesn't have an advertising budget.
