  •  I'm a transplanted Arizonan... (13+ / 0-) West Hollywood California.  The current governor of Arizona, Jan "The Lecturer of Obama" Brewer, reflects only the staid, conserative/Mormon Phoenix metropolitan area.  The southern part of Arizona, Pima County, where I come from, is true blue.  It's the home of Tucson, and Gabby Giffords.

    There have always been moves to separate Pima County from the rest of the state, never, sadly, amounting to anything.  Arizona surely has had amongst the worst governors in US history--Google Evan Mecham, who publicly called black children "pickaninnies" and abused the office so badly he was impeached and removed.  Then there was Jack Williams, who refused to do anything about air pollution in 1960's Phoenix (when it was very bad) because he said the air is no worse than it ever was, we can just see it better from newly built tall buildings.

    I'm not sixty-two—I'm fifty-twelve!
