In a debate the other night, Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer turned her opening statement into what some would call a stump speech.

In theatre, it’s called “going dry” or “going up on your lines.” The follow-up interview, where she was asked about beheaded bodies in the Arizona desert, was even more painful.

Well, her supporters can say that she’s not full of canned soundbites and she doesn’t work off a Teleprompter. Oh, okay.
