Jan Brewer in D.C. dismissing those who need transplants

YouTube video from ThinkProgress -

One of the reasons that I became actively involved in politics was because I became thoroughly embarrassed in 2006 by my then-Congressman, J.D. Hayworth and some local guy named Harry Mitchell ran against him.  Mitchell was a retired teacher (you may have heard of him :) ) and brought a measure of dignity and respect for public service to the office.

In 2010, things in AZ have regressed, and if he were still in office, Hayworth would be considered "middle of the pack" in terms of his embarrassment factor.  There is a glimmer of hope, however -

Some folks who previously were as thoroughly disinterested in politics as I am disinterested in Lifetime cable network movies are now as embarrassed by Jan (and her clan) as I was by Hayworth.  They're now realizing how much trouble Arizona (and Arizonans) is in because of Brewer's heartlessness.

Hopefully, enough of them will become active and be able to help change the course of this once-great state.

Good luck with taking down Jan Brewer. I don't think that is possible until the public is tired of paying to "build the dang fence". I certainly hope that Arizona production of marijuana will reduce the black market some over the next few years.

The problem is not a lack of funds as the Governor claims. The problem is misplaced priorities. Look at what she is spending on her pet projects, Centennial Way in Phoenix and the Arizona Centennial Museum.

The Arizona Centennial Museum will be educational. I am sure that children from all over will travel to in on field trips and learn history. They can sell some tickets to out of out of state tourists looking to learn more about Arizona.

Think of the multiplier effect!
