Above is a picture of Governor Jan Brewer in front of a Christmas tree inside the Capitol.

This picture was posted on the governor's Facebook account, along with an explanation that she fully supports winter holidays celebrated by Christians and Jews.

"As you may know, in the past, state and local officials in Arizona (and elsewhere) have attempted to strip both Christmas and Hanukkah of their meaning, including establishment of policies forbidding state employees from placing religious items of celebration at their desks, re-naming Christmas trees as 'holiday' trees, and renaming Menorahs as 'candlesticks,'" the post says. "Under my administration, I call things what they are...a Christmas Tree and a Menorah... and will gladly allow both Christmas and Hanukkah to be celebrated at the State Capitol. I encourage my colleagues and fellow elected officials across the nation to do the same."

Now that we're all that much dumber, let's vote on the best word to describe the above photo of Brewer.
