Jan Brewer: One of the 100 Most Influential People in the World?

Governor Jan Brewer's being considered for TIME magazine's list of the world's 100 most influential people, and according to its reader poll, she's doing better than President Obama.

The governor dropped from 13th place to 15th by the end of the day yesterday -- leaving her one spot above Stephen Colbert -- although the world's most famous finger-wagger needs to place first to guarantee a sport on the "100" list.

Brewer's ahead of President Obama (and the First Lady), Tim Tebow, Oprah, and about 180 other people, although some of the 14 people ahead of her are ahead by far.

Brewer's claim to fame, at least according to TIME, is just general disdain for the federal government:

Age: 67
Occupation: Arizona governor

Under the leadership of Republican Brewer, Arizona has faced off with the federal government like no other state in recent memory. Amid accusations that the Obama Administration failed to protect Arizona from illegal immigration, Brewer championed a strict legislative crackdown that the Administration will challenge this year in the Supreme Court. Brewer has criticized President Obama for blocking uranium mining near the Grand Canyon and was photographed having an intense exchange with Obama on the tarmac at Phoenix's airport in January.

Apparently the bar isn't set extremely high for making this list, as Justin Bieber, Sting, and Michele Bachmann made last year's edition.

Still, is Brewer among the "leaders, artists, innovators, icons and heroes" who deserve a spot in TIME's list?

Time is really slipping. I can remember back when it was a worthwhile magazine, even if not the best. I suppose that admission dates me, though.

I've been ignoring newtimes.com for several months, have logged on a few times in the last few weeks, read several stories, and found comments from you at the bottom of nearly every story. You are either the most ignorant, childish, dimwitted, one track mind umeployed with too much free time atheist/god fixated moron on the face of the planet or...wait, you are employed...by new times...to stir people up, increase comments and bring a fake sense of relevance to your blogs, increased traffic, increased ad revenue. I'm back to ignoring new times. These comments include some of the stupidest banter on the internet. boycott new times. they really suck

 Bitching constantly on new times blog for years and years getting nowhere is the easy way for new times bloggers to solve the jan brewer sheriff joe problem. and it gives them something to do in their boring days on earth that leads to nowhere. but in their small thinking minds they actually think they are doing some good. its all a falicy of their own making.
