Jan Brewer: Arizona Awarded GOP Presidential Debate. Gov Bails on Plan to Move Primary Date to January 31

According to Governor Jan Brewer, GOP presidential candidates will be coming to Arizona to debate.

The debate, Brewer says, was awarded to the state by the Republican National Committee, and has apparently persuaded the governor to not seek a "louder voice" for Arizona nationally by moving the state's primary date to January 31.

"Arizona is a battleground for critical issues ranging from illegal immigration to medicaid reform," the governor says. "Our voters deserve to hear the presidential candidates speak to these and other important issues."

Brewer's been crowin' about moving the date of the primary for the past few weeks. The idea being that presidential candidates will spend more time in Arizona listening to voters gripe if the primary date was earlier.

As we noted earlier this week, Arizona's "voice" as of late hasn't been too impressive.

In the past two years, Arizona politicos have concocted an immigration law that managed to piss off just about everyone in the entire country (if you support it, you've had it with the bleedin' heart liberals; if you oppose it, everyone who supports it is a racist).

They've turned a continuously debunked conspiracy theory into the humiliating "birther bill,"
which could have forced presidential candidates to provide the government with a physical description of their penis before their name is allowed on the ballot in the Grand Canyon State.

Those behind Arizona's "voice" have spent time -- and your money -- coming up with a
legislative solution to a non-existent problem: race-based abortions.

Then there's the guns: guns in bars, guns on college campuses (almost), an official state gun, ATF guns creeping across the border to Mexico.

And then there's Jan Brewer, Russell Pearce, J.D. Hayworth, Raul Grijalva, and Joe Arpaio -- sweet Jesus, Joe Arpaio!

Arizona was recently named the "worst state in the country" by the hit-hungry blogsters at Gawker, and the state's antics have earned it the nickname of "the meth-lab of democracy" -- and Brewer wants to make that meth-lab's voice louder.

The deadline for Brewer to move the primary date to January 31, is tomorrow. She's apparently decided not to do it, although she says she wants to "keep [her] options open" for deciding on an alternative date.
 

"With whatever date I choose, my goal remains the same as ever: To provide Arizona voters the biggest possible platform with which to impact the presidential nomination process," she says. "In such a critical election, this is a decision that is owed careful consideration."

It always amazes me that Queenie has any energy at all to perform any kind of governmental duties at all. Just take a look at that pretty face, it's a road map to every fucking happy hour she has ever attended. At our house we just call her "Governor Drunkie Face." Of course we mean no disrespect.

I only hope they've got enough front loaders at the debate to remove all the bullshit from the stage.

Republicans and other racists haters needs to shut up. They are nothing more than a hate group  members and leaders  like Nazi. Throughout the history there were plenty of moments when laws outlived themselves. There were as much resistance from haters and racists during slave liberation and during equal rights movements like it is now. Guess what, haters and racists lost back then and they will lose today. INA of 1986 outlived itself. It failed miserably resulting in 11 million undocumented people most of whom are mothers and fathers of American citizens, spouses of American citizens, daughters and sons of American citizens. This fight  is for the integrity of American families, this  fight is for American citizens to live together with their mothers and fathers, husbands and wives, daughters and sons.Were is your patriotism? Do you think that leaving 4 000 000 American children without parents both patriotic and in the society interest?

It's not surprising the GOP would have a debate in AZ.  The people of this state represent their base.  Uneducated, bible thumping, gun totin' morons, true patriots in the eyes of the GOP.  And of course there is Queen Jan of the trailer trash clan, really a louder voice?  Hasn't queen Jan been broadcasting the voice of her trailer park politics nation/world wide for long enough?

A presidential debate in Arizona would make for high comedy with all of the participants crowded far off to the right side of the stage. The only question being that would it be to the right side as seen by the participants or the right side as seen by the audience. Also, there might be a bit of jostling going on as they vie for the position farthest to the right.
