While Andy Borowitz takes aim at Jan Brewer at The New Yorker, it is also an opportunity to address who she is and the qualifications that Arizonans accepted for her being in office as the state's top executive. You see, even when she accidentally makes the right decision, it may not be for the correct reasons. She in fact remains one of the most incompetent governors among the 50 states.
“Arizona Governor Vetoes Anti-Gay Bill: “Let’s Focus on Discriminating Against Mexicans”
PHOENIX (The Borowitz Report)—Arizona Governor Jan Brewer vetoed a controversial anti-gay bill last night, telling reporters, “Let’s focus on discriminating against Mexicans.””
She is in office by default and perhaps by a terrible mistake by Barack Obama by selecting Janet Napolitano as Homeland Security Director. If Napolitano had stayed in the office of Governor of Arizona, a Democrat would be in that office. By default, the state has Jan Brewer.
“Governor Janet Napolitano was selected by President Barack Obama to serve as the Secretary of Homeland Security in the United States Cabinet. Arizona has no lieutenant governor, so the Secretary of State stands first in the line of succession if he or she holds that post as a result of an election. Despite her earlier quarrels with the line of succession while serving in the State Senate, Brewer was sworn in as governor after Napolitano resigned from her position on January 21, 2009. She is Arizona's fourth female governor and its third consecutive female governor.”
Let’s get something straight. A person with a radiology certificate does not qualify for governor, mayor, or any other executive public office position. She is not properly experienced and equipped. Arizona got bamboozled and cheated.
