Governor Jan Brewer's BFFF is coming to town...
Next month, Greta Van Susteren -- Jan's number one gal pal -- will broadcast her show, On the Record With Greta Van Susteren live from Phoenix as part of the Fox News Channel's 15th anniversary tour.
It could have been worse, Phoenicians...much, much worse; we could be Boston, Atlanta, or Chicago -- those cities will get visits from Bill O'Reilley, Sean Hannity, and Neil Cavuto, respectively.
The tour kicks off on Monday, with additional stops in Orlando and Las Vegas.
A Fox News spokesperson tells New Times Van Susteren will broadcast her show live from the Arizona State Fair on October 20.
Van Susteren and Brewer have long history BFFF-ship.
After becoming the darling of the Conservative movement after signing SB 1070 and taking on the Obama Administration, Brewer appeared on Van Susteren's show, like, every other night for about six months for a little girl talk.
In other words, we'd be shocked if Brewer isn't one of Van Susteren's guests.
We'd be equally shocked if Arizona's resident publicity hound, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, doesn't do whatever he can to hijack the show with some of his fruitcake sheriffin'.
The sheriff, as you may know, has a tendency to make a scene whenever he knows the eyes of the nation are on his county. Take, for example, this year's Major League Baseball All-Star Game.
The show is open to the public -- no tickets required.
