Jan Brewer: Ignorant, Irrational, Prevaricating, Self-Serving Bigot

They don't call her "GED Jan" for nothin'.

Following U.S. District Court Judge David Campbell's ruling this week in Arizona Dream Act Coalition v. Jan Brewer, Brewer was quick to gloat and mischaracterize Campbell's decision, painting it as a vindication of her prejudiced policy.

On her Facebook page, someone who knows how to spell wrote on behalf of our English- language-challenged chief exec that, "a federal court UPHELD my Executive Order and Arizona's law denying driver's licenses to illegal aliens who President Obama has allowed to remain in our country under his outrageous [Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals] program."

"Upheld"? In your dreams, Jan.

True, Campbell declined to issue an injunction against enforcement of the order, as sought by the plaintiffs.

However, there are stringent requirements that must be met before a judge can issue such an injunction.
