Jan Brewer's book, Scorpions For Breakfast: My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure the Border is scheduled to launch in November. But Brewer is letting you know now that she'll probably miss the deadline. Why? Like the economy and unemployment and global warming, it's Obama's fault.
"I'm working away, trying to get this all done on the weekends and late at night, trying to get it done, and all of a sudden, here we go: He starts it all up again,'' Brewer said.If the book ever does come out, and it fails to sell despite the appealing title of Scorpions for Breakfast, that too will be Obama's fault.
The "he'' is Barack Obama. And what he restarted, the governor said, is what she sees as another hit to border security, this time with the administration's plans to stop deporting some illegal immigrants, focusing its resources instead on those with criminal backgrounds.
"To open up and give back door amnesty has got everybody outraged,'' Brewer said. "It certainly has me concerned.''
More to the point about her book, the governor said she cannot talk about her ongoing fight with Washington without mentioning -- and criticizing -- the latest move.
Brewer is working against a deadline."I have to have it done by Nov. 1,'' she said.
Actually, her deadline is quite a bit before then: That's the day the book is supposed to ship.
