In our account of the "Occupy Phoenix" demonstration in downtown Phoenix earlier this month, we used the above image of an "occupier" holding a sign stating that Arizona Governor Jan Brewer is a "lying whore" who has Alzheimer's disease.
In our post about the rally, we suggested that calling someone a "lying whore" might not be the best way to go about spreading a message if that message is to be taken seriously by non-radicals.
Since our story was published, the sign's creator, a "99-percenter" who goes by the name "Haight Ashbury," sent us an email explaining why Jan Brewer is a "lying whore" with Alzheimer's.
"Ashbury's" issue with Governor Glug-Glug isn't that she literally sells her body for sex (good luck getting that image out of your head), rather that she's a "common whore" for selling out to "corporate Ameri-ka."
See "Ashbury's" complete email (all sic) below.

Brewer has Alzheimers & is a lying whore".unfortunately? the young girl holding the sign on the steps at protest is catching the blame & responsibility for "my signage". i was talking on the podium & and the young girl simply offered to hold my sign while i was blasting Corporate Ameri-Ka!i was explaining my use of the word 'whore' as it applies to the Corporate owned lobbyist politicians, to wit: whenever someone 'buys' you, or whenever you "solicit" or "sell one's self out", you are not a 'nice person', you are a "Prostitute, a common whore..."when Gov. Brewer took it upon herself to "bypass" Federal law "for her own Greed and satisfaction" (to wit: State Bill 1070)ohhhhh, THAT was ok! But HELL NO, GOD Forbid "THE PEOPLE" of Arizona voted into law Medical Marijuana, that Bitch takes it upon herself to IGNORE the people of Arizona, and to Ignore the State LAW Legalizing MEDICAL Marijuana, it was obvious ,'one': she states this is a Federal Matter and can not be voted by the people of the state,(State Bill 1070 is ok though...)"two" She (the LYING WHORE) obviously "Sold Out" to "Korporate Ameri-Ka" , to the likes of the major pharmaceautical companies, thus becoming a whore, that lies.Alzheimers? do you recal the long period of silence during her campaign debate session, that's earl stages of Alzheimers, i know what Alzheimers looks like, my Mother had t and my good friend Glen Campbell.my sincere kindest regards,
