Following a disastrous candidates’ debate in which Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer blanked out for what must have seemed an eternity, the Republican front-runner has been scrambling to repair the damage – starting with her overstating the nature of carnage along the border.
OK, glad we got that straightened out.
Following a disastrous gubernatorial candidates’ debate Wednesday in which Gov. Brewer blanked out for what must have seemed an eternity while giving her opening statement, the Republican front-runner has been scrambling to repair the damage …starting with her overstating the nature of the bad stuff along the border.
Some drug- and gang-related violence has spilled over the border, the Associated Press reports, but “none of the southern Arizona coroners who handle immigrant cases have seen headless bodies.”
Without getting too eww-inducing, let’s just say that according to the experts, there are ways of telling how a skull may have become separated from the rest of a corpse. Wild animals, for example.
"That was an error, if I said that," Brewer told The Associated Press on Friday. "I misspoke, but you know, let me be clear, I am concerned about the border region because it continues to be reported in Mexico that there's a lot of violence going on and we don't want that going into Arizona."
