Jan Brewer Says "No" To Future Debates

From a Jillian Reyfield article at Talking Points Memo:
If at first you awkwardly stumble through your opening statement, why bother trying again?

Gov. Jan Brewer (R) has put the kibosh on all future debates with her Arizona gubernatorial opponent Terry Goddard (D), after her rather embarrassing display at Wednesday's debate. "I don't believe that things come out in proper context in an adversarial atmosphere," she defended herself.

According to the Arizona Daily Star, Brewer says she only partook in the debate to try qualify for the $1.7 million-plus public funds for her campaign.

So after her poor showing, which involved a flubbed opening statement that made the internet rounds yesterday, Brewer has had enough: "I think it's pretty defined what [Goddard] stands for and what I stand for."
Looks like another right-wing candidate is avoiding her constituency because she is an idiot (whihc is somewhat of a smart move).  Brewer, who screwed up in her first and apparently only campaign debate, has decided to quit the debate circuit because she is apparently too good to tell voters what she stands for.

Where have we seen such tactics before?

That's right!  Tea party darlings Sharron Angle and Sarah Palin love to dodge the media they have no control over.  That is probably why so many people still love them, but if you've noticed, since Sarah Palin emergence onto the national scene and the increase in public interest, the more her popularity has declined - people loved the former half-term governor when they knew nothing about her!

Here's a thought - Brewer doesn't want to debate anymore because she lacks the skills to properly communicate her message.  Given that fact, as a voter, what makes me think that Brewer will be able to convey the principles of her constituency once elected?

So far, in her short time as governor, Brewer has done nothing but brought negative attention to her state (as well as condemnations from the United Nations for human rights violations), engaging in extreme partisan politics. 

Here is a video from Kieth Olbermann that explains the situation:

As a side note, I just looked at her Wikipedia page and noticed her maiden name was "Drinkwine."

Isn't that funny?
