Arizona Is Still Nuts

It seemed Gov. Jan Brewer and her fellow Arizona wackos might be joining the land of the living when she vetoed a birther bill as "a bridge too far." But no. Working, don't forget, on the taxpayers' dime, now they've approved the Colt revolver as the state's official firearm - because clearly every state needs one more than, say, jobs or education - and given the Tea Party's 'Don't Tread On Me' flag the same legal status as the American flag. Why not, some ask, just bring back the Confederacy and be done with it?
