After three weeks of thinkin', Governor Jan Brewer's finally figured out what she's going to do about her order denying driver's licenses for deferred action beneficiaries -- nothin'.

Brewer's August order says that participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program do not have "any lawful or authorized status and does not entitle them to any additional public benefit," which includes driver's licenses -- a thought the ACLU and others have said is false.

Jan Brewer's Third-Term Interpretation of Constitution Challenged by Democrat's Bill

Governor Jan Brewer
Since Governor Jan Brewer hasn't given up on her interpretation of the Arizona Constitution that two terms really means three terms, Democratic State Senator Steve Gallardo has proposed changing the wording of that section.

There's a big problem with Gallardo's proposal -- since he's proposing a change to the state Constitution, it would have to be put on the ballot for voters to decide. That would happen in 2014, the same year that Brewer is saying she can run for a third term.

Governor Jan Brewer
One week after the ACLU declared that federal officials had essentially contradicted Governor Jan Brewer's executive order preventing deferred action beneficiaries from getting driver's licenses, the governor hasn't decided how to respond.

Brewer's August order says that participants in the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program do not have "any lawful or authorized status and does not entitle them to any additional public benefit," which includes driver's licenses.

Governor Jan Brewer's brain-fart response last week to a KTVK-Channel 3 reporter's question about global warming does not appear to be the only Jan bein' Jan moment from that interview.

According to a report, Brewer totally punched Channel 3 political reporter Dennis Welch.

Governor Jan Brewer discusses the weather.
Governor Jan Brewer declared late last week that the components of the weather in Earth's atmosphere are caused by "different things," creating another Jan bein' Jan moment in the governor's repertoire.

The setup from KTVK-Channel 3's Dennis Welch was asking the governor whether she believes global warming is man-made, and her response is an instant classic.

Jan Brewer May Actually Be Serious About Running for (Likely Unconstitutional) Third Term

Governor Jan Brewer
It appears that Governor Jan Brewer may be serious about seeking a third term, after reading that she said this for (at least) a third time, even though the Arizona Constitution says you only get two terms.

The Arizona Republic published its way-too-early list of gubernatorial candidates for the 2014 election, and of course, Brewer offered herself up for the list.

Governor Jan Brewer
Yesterday, we reprinted the entire statement prepared by Mark Kelly, husband of former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, which he read at the sentencing of Tucson shooter Jared Loughner.

It was a damn good statement that included a pointed remark about Governor Jan Brewer's comments after the shooting. To that, the governor responded that she "isn't interested in engaging in politics" (for once).

Jan Brewer Comments on Border Patrol Agent's Death by Going After Feds, Obama

Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for brewer jan.jpg
Governor Jan Brewer has an opinion.
You probably could've seen this coming, but Governor Jan Brewer just couldn't issue a comment on the killing of U.S. Border Patrol Agent Nicholas Ivie without mentioning President Obama or his administration.

While most public officials remained cordial with their remarks (for example, Attorney General Tom Horne and Senator John McCain), Brewer says everyone should be angry at the federal "failure."
