Arizona governor vetoes birther, campus gun bills
PHOENIX (Reuters) – Arizona's Republican Governor Jan Brewer on Monday vetoed two controversial bills, one mandating proof of U.S. citizenship to run for president, the other allowing guns on college campuses, in a clear setback for conservatives who control the state legislature.
I wonder what's come over Governor Brewer. Maybe she and the state have figured out they've gone far enough to the right and they need to reel back.
When you put that with the fact that the Tea Party tax day rallies yesterday were down to tiny numbers, it is just about enough to give you hope. Maybe the extreme right wing has swung far enough "out there", that they're headed back to the rest of us, back where reality resides.
Update: Later this same day she apparently had to "throw them a bone", so to speak: Gov. Brewer Signs Law Giving Tea Party Flag Same Status As American Flag
Them's some mighty weird people down there in Arizona.
