Yesterday, Governor Jan Brewer got about 30 seconds to announce who Arizona's delegates were supporting at the Republican National Convention, and she managed to pack a bunch of awkward stuff into that 30-second window.

First, Brewer got some big claps from the audience, and some guy standing too close to the microphone just had to inform the governor, "They love ya."

Then, Brewer declared that GOP presidential nominee is a "westerner at heart," before muttering either "go west" or "good old west" -- which doesn't really make sense either way.

Lastly, the governor said she was incredibly proud to represent Arizona, and announced that Arizona delegates were giving 26 votes to Romney, "...and three for Ron Paul," which Brewer said in the most mopey way possible.

So, after listening to that 30 seconds of action -- hilarious commentary from KTAR's Mac and Gaydos is optional -- which part was the worst?
