Maybe, it’s because the elections are in 3 weeks or that Halloween is just 20 days away. Either way, there’s been a lot of talk about headlessness, necks, and choking around here.
First, there’s the pencil-necked empty-suit Ben Quayle running for Congress, but he’s beside the point. After all, Ben Quayle won’t be the first unqualified candidate for political office to get himself elected with his daddy’s money.
No, I’m referring to the considerable play made here several months ago when Jan Brewer, the Arizona Governor was seeing ‘Beheaded Bodies’ on the Border.
“That was an error, if I said that,” she later told the Associated Press when media fact-checkers found out she’d lost her own head making what proved to be a bogus claim. “Brewer’s mindlessness about headlessness is just one of the immigration falsehoods being spread by Arizona politicians,” wrote Washington Post columnist Dana Milbank.
I think Jan’s nonsensical tales of headless bodies in the Arizona desert may have been the start of the local politicos’ rostral roundup. Of course, before that there were those gonadal gibes blogged about here involving Sarah Palin’s testicular takedown of Obama’s testosterone bona fides, Going balls out on immigration. Sarah compares Jan and Barack’s ‘cojones.‘
Caught in the headlights.
As for choking, that happened in September, at Governor Jan’s one and only debate when she choked on camera making a deer-in-the-headlights Cringe-Worthy Debate Opening Statement.
She’s not the first politician to fold like a cheap suit nor will she be the last. And despite her embarrassing gaffe, astride that SB 1070 donkey, Jan will win election handily even if she’ll never see a trophy for elocution. Also see Arizona Governor ‘Brain Freeze’.
Don’t bring me that head.
In August, there was the Report of a $1M bounty on Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s head. The threat supposedly made via email is not reminiscent of Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia, but America’s self-proclaimed toughest sheriff did say, “I’m going to keep doing what I’m doing. It doesn’t matter to me.” Of course, like the claim about headless torsos in the desert, one skeptical local wag called it Joe Arpaio’s Latest Bogus Death Threat.
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
