Phoenix, AZ - Arizona's embattled Governor, Jan Brewer, has caught the ire of Rupert Murdoch, media mogul extraordinaire, who says that he is sick and tired putting his money behind people who go one toke over the line, ruining it for other fundamentalist Republicans lined up to take their rightful places at the head of all local, state and federal governments. So he's doing something about it, saying "If you want something fu*king done right, you gotta fu*king do it ye'self."
Rupert Mudoch is running for Arizona Governor this year, hoping to pluck the seat from Jan Brewer, who acquired it when Janet Napolitano stepped away to become Secretary of Homeland Security under the Obama Administration. In his speech announcing the surprise bid, Murdoch said there are two reasons he chose to go after the Arizona governorship. "First, and foremost, let me say that I like the way Jan Brewer took the initiative to rid Arizona of all second-class citizens, but she's just a woman after all, and I just don't think she has the balls to finish the job. Secondly, and more importantly, since Arizona doesn't have a lieutenant governor position, I believe this political seat provides the best possible scenario to allow me to wield unchecked power over a large group of people at once without interference from anyone."
"Can he do that?" some are asking. The answer is yes. With today's screwy political climate coupled with a bleak financial outlook for the country in general, anyone with more money than God can and will begin to go into the various states and scoop up offices of power to promote their own selfish agendas.
From here on out to the November elections, you are going to start seeing just how much political power the almighty dollar can buy. From putting an unqualified, tongue-tied, never been in front of a camera, unemployed black man in a position of becoming a United States Senator, to throwing a heapload of money at a former beauty queen, who seems to be tweeting her way into the hearts of America without giving an interview or knowing the difference between a filibuster and a Peanut Buster Parfait to become President of the United States, you can better believe a new day is dawning.
Then ask yourself, is it so far-fetched to believe that a man who buys whomever and whatever he pleases also has the power to buy a governor's seat for himself in the upcoming elections?
