Kudos to arch-conservative Republican governor Jan Brewer for finally refusing to cave in to the lunatic fringe of her party. Today she vetoed both the Birther Bill
and the Guns on College Campuses bill.
The gun bill veto is probably due to public sentiment in the aftermath of the Tucson massacre last January. The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence
works hard to dissuade legislators from regressing on arms control, so they should get some of the thanks too.
The Birther Bill is, of course, prima facie crazy, much like the Shariah Law Law in Oklahoma.
