10 Strangest Things That Have Come Out of Jan Brewer's Mouth in the Last Year
|via Fox News|
|Governor Jan Brewer, on the verge of saying something colossally dumb.|
That includes earlier this week, when Brewer kind of expressed her support for the "Gang of Eight" immigration bill, and her press team spent the rest of the day explaining that she really didn't. But Brewer has enlightened the public much less on many more occasions -- check out our list of the 10 strangest things that have come out of Brewer's mouth over the last year (which doesn't include any physical objects, just words):
10.) Jan loves smiles

"I love all of the smiles on all of your faces," Brewer said, followed by a pause, and look around the room. "Love it."
9.) Immigration reform is "a victory for Arizona"
"I think that what we're seeing taking place in the Senate is a victory for Arizona," Brewer responded.
Brewer was talking about something else, but failed to make that clear. She meant to say an amendment to spend more on border security was the victory, but confused watchers thought she endorsed the immigration bill, which she has since clarified she doesn't.
8.) Mostly incoherent rambling at the RNC
This one kind of needs to be heard for the full effect. This was Brewer's 30-second slot at the Republican National Convention, and there may have never been so many awkward things crammed into a 30-second speech before.
Some guy standing too close to the microphone informed the governor, "They love ya," as Brewer declared that Mitt Romney is a "westerner at heart," before muttering either "go west" or "good old west" -- which doesn't really make sense either way. She also tried to avoid saying that three of Arizona's delegates defected to Ron Paul, and it's a mild miracle that people clapped for any of it.
7.) Doing "something illegal" makes you "an illegal"
Brewer explained that doing something illegal makes you "an illegal," to which we noted that driving under the influence after a couple of glasses of scotch and rear-ending a minivan must not be illegal, or else Arizona apparently has "an illegal" for governor.
"To me they're illegal immigrants," Brewer told ABC News. "When you break the law, you're doing something illegal, that makes you an illegal, so they are illegal immigrants."
