Well, not really. I Can Has Cheezburger is funny-cat-picture web site. But what Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer did say during her opening remarks at her debate with Democratic challenger Terry Goddard Wednesday was just as grammatically horrifying.
Brewer opened with an embarrassingly weak, slow-motion, rambling, repetitive and brief statement: "I have, uh, done so much, and I just cannot believe that we have changed everything since I have become your governor in the last 600 days. Arizona has been brought back from its abyss. We have cut the budget. We have balanced the budget, and we are moving forward. We have done everything we could possibly do."
Brewer, realizing that a stammering, empty-suited 25-second summation of her accomplishments and why she deserves to be re-elected was woefully insufficient, put her head down, stared at her notes, fidgeted with her hands, laughed nervously and after 15 seconds of painful silence only managed to come with "We have did what was right for Arizona." O-tay, Spanky!
For a legislator who all but wants to crucify illegal aliens, at least they speak better English than she does.
