Jan Brewer Stars in Another Jan Brewer Brain Fart, With Eight Pronunciations of "Tuskegee"



Stop us if you've heard this one before, but Governor Jan Brewer had an incredibly difficult time spitting out words.

Brewer was commemorating those famous African-American pilots from World War II yesterday -- you know, the Tusakee, Tusks, Tuh-see-gee, Tuskegee, Tuska-skee, Tuske-tuh, TUSKEGEE, Tus-kee-kee, Tus-kuh-kee Airmen.

Yes, those were all of the actual pronounciations of "Tuskegee Airmen" Brewer attempted yesterday.

Fox 10 has the footage:


The disconnect between Brewer's brain and her mouth could become one of the most defining moments of her governorship, including a 16-second-long brain fart during a debate, her struggle to spit out the phrase "belt buckle," her endorsement of President Obama, and her scientific theory that the weather is caused by "different things."

Brewer might really want to reconsider her threats to run for a likely unconstitutional third term, before everything that comes out of her mouth starts sounding like an explanation of who sells seashells by the seashore.
