Arizona Governor Jan Brewer finally kind of sort of admitted that she was wrong about beheadings in the Arizona desert.
"That was an error, if I said that," Brewer told the Associated Press yesterday. "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."
You gotta love that little "if I said it" line. Facts are opinions these days, and all it takes is a couple little throw-aways like that to convince her supporters that she never said any such thing. It's a "mainstream media" conspiracy, blah blah blah.
What? There's video of her saying it, twice? Probably faked.
That wasn't even the end of her dissembling. She also claimed that she when discussing the headless bodies, she "never said 'Arizona,' and it's unfortunate that it was construed as 'Arizona.'"
It's true. She said "our law enforcement agencies" have found headless bodies. Clearly, by "our" agencies, she meant Mexico's.
The saddest part of this whole story, of course, is that she's going to win.
