The Sand Hag is at it again.
It might be due to the 120 degree-plus heat that the area around Phoenix has been experiencing over the past couple of weeks, unrelenting heat so intense that every desert rat's corn is popping. Or perhaps it's due to the regular outbursts of bizarre comments, like so much automatic weapons' fire, coming from the mouth of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee. Whatever the cause, former Arizona governor Jan Brewer has kicked the lid off of her political crypt and crawled back into the slimelight.
Brewer and her BFF, Sheriff Joe Arpaio, are beside themselves with joy over the ascension of Donald Trump to lead the Republican Party. He is a man, by God, who will finally do something about those filthy Mexicans who storm across Arizona's southern border and pose an on-going danger to public safety and well-being by mowing lawns and cleaning bathrooms. And The Donald will be the one to finally do something about all of those headless bodies littering the Sonora Desert, bodies that only Jan and Joe seem to have ever seen.
In preparation for her full-throated support of the candidacy of Donald Trump for President, Brewer decided to practice her political diction and voice exercises by attacking President Obama. She seems to believe that the President has been disparaging Trump - and perhaps Republicans in general. Jan Brewer said that Obama "always comes tearing after Republicans constantly, calling names, and calling people bigots and racists . . . and it's absolutely ridiculous . . . to see a President speak like that is offensive."
There is plenty of bigotry afoot, Jan, and a great deal of it in Arizona - but most of it seems to be a reaction to President Obama, and not anything promoted by him. Some people in America, and particularly those out in the sand and weeds where you live, have had a very hard time adjusting to the notion that America elected a black President - twice. You need to get over it.
Crawl back into your political crypt, Jan, or take another spin on your bar stool. In a few months your nemesis will be gone and then you can begin spitting your venom on his successor - Hillary.
Won't that be fun!
