I Just Can't Put My "Finger" On It (Jan Brewer)
Okay PTBPD Family, we all have seen the viral photo of Arizona Governor Jan Brewer pointing her finger in the POTUS face on the airport tarmac in Arizona shortly after the president arrived. Is this the same thing as Joe Wilson's "You Lie" comment or the notion that Newt Gingrich refuses to address President Obama as "President"? Or, was it just a photo op for Gov. Brewer to boost sells for her new book?
I'll be doing a blog soon solely dedicated to the divisive language coming from the GOP primaries, right-wing radio, and similar mediums that many have labeled: racial "dog whistling". The biggest problem that I have with Brewer pointing her finger in the president's face is the fact that this lady sometimes can't even articulate an appropriate thought and the fact that she doesn't even have a college degree (second paragraph)!
Dog whistling, white-skin-privilege, putting him in his place, book selling? What say you? Wth?...
