Palin Defends Brewer

Former Republican Vice Presidential candidate and Tea Party favorite, Sarah Palin, continued this past weekend to insert herself into the immigration debate by demonstrating her knowledge of a Spanish language term to describe AZ Gov. Jan Brewer.

In an interview on Sunday with Fox News, Palin said the judge’s ruling “temporary” and “unfortunate” she went on to say that “Jan Brewer has the cojones that the President does not.”

Despite Palin’s assertions that Brewer’s decision to sign SB 1070 into law was “ballsy”, almost all analysts are in agreement that it was the politically expedient thing to do.  At the time, this past spring, Brewer was behind in the polls in her race for the Republican nomination for Governor.  Taking a hard-line stance against immigration in this border state immediately won her the backing of the far right of her party and lifted her profile and fund raising ability to a national level.

Palin appeared with Brewer following her signing of the bill and has since become a vocal supporter of the Arizona law.

For his part, President Obama has continued to express his commitment to passing comprehensive immigration reform and has urged Republicans to come to the negotiating table.

  1. I want AZ Governor Jan Brewer to show papers to prove she’s a human being. I think it was FOX that did a show on extraterrestrials that live among us, and Governor Brewer does resemble some alien from a B Movie, “Invasion of the Brain Snatchers”, right? I’ve have my suspicions about people like Jan Brewer, Mitch McConnell and Karl Rove because of their lack of human qualities.

    As far as the immigration issue goes… Republicans never made a big deal about immigration enforcement during Bush/Cheney but NOW all conservative hell is breaking loose… even though the Obama Administration is deporting MORE illegal’s than Bush ever did. Maybe we should adopt Ronald Wilson Reagan’s immigration policy (look it up morons)

    And funny how I didn’t hear NOT ONE WORD on the Cable News about AZ Gov. Jan Brewer’s connection with the Corrections Corp of America. Not to mention I could stop this immigration problem with one thing… ARREST ALL THOSE conservative business people WHO ARE HIRING THE ILLEGAL WORKERS! Republican Party = Hypocrisy

    On 7-28-10 I was watching Republicans on Morning Joe (MSNBC) preach about being ADULTS when it comes to our economic meltdown. I say BS! The real ADULTS are trying to demand accountability from those who got us in this financial mess. Republicans want to shift the burden of responsibility on
    American working class, teachers, poor people, unions and immigrants.

    I wonder if the spoiled Silver Spoons on Morning Joe knew how much they hurt Democrats, Progressives, Liberals when they didn’t challenge NJ Gov. Christie. NOW all over the internet the Conservative wacko groupies are swooning all over Christie like he was a rock star. Of course, because of these Republican low grade thought processes, the right wing monkeys now consider American working class, teachers, poor people, unions and immigrants the biggest threat to our economy

    What kind of Americans are stupid enough to believe that decent wages, decent working conditions, enforcing again regulation, reforming our broken financial system and broken healthcare are BAD THINGS! Especially letting all those tax breaks for the rich expire (ten years is enough!) so the rich can again pay their fair share. When the Republicans were running things they started two wars they did not want to finish, set us up for financial system failure and took tax dollars away from grade schools to give BP tax breaks/subsidies (Corporate Welfare). DON’T BELIEVE ME, you rightwing numbskulls, CHECK IT OUT FOR YOURSELVES!
