Remember yesterday, when Gov. Tumbleweed-for-Brains was all giddy because except for the part where the Supreme Court struck down most of Arizona's heinous SB 1070 "papers, please" law, the Court totally upheld the law, in a "victory" for people who hate brown people?
Apparently, someone sat Jan Brewer down to explain some things to her, and now she's outraged—outraged!—and it's all Obama's fault:
Before lawmakers could fully digest the court’s decision on Monday upholding the “show me your papers” provision of the law, the Obama administration announced that it was revoking agreements with Arizona police over the enforcement of federal immigration laws. [...]
Brewer told Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren on Monday that she was “shocked” and “outraged” to learn of the move.
“This is politics at its best,” she said. “It’s just unconscionable. What they said to Arizona is, ‘Drop dead, Arizona. Drop dead and go away. We’re going to ignore you.’” [...]
“They arbitrarily single out Arizona and sent a bomb, if you will, across our bow and made Arizona once again a target,” she said. “The people of America ought to be outraged. This is absolutely an assault.”
Okay, so whoever sat Brewer down to explain things to her failed to mention that it was the Supreme Court who said (and I'm only slightly paraphrasing here), "Wow, that law you dry-heat dimwits cobbled together with string, spit and racism is, like, totally not constitutional."
Under normal circumstances, Brewer and fellow Republicans would no doubt invoke the old "activist judges" claim, but since even some of the conservatives on the Court agreed that Arizona's law sucks, Brewer pivoted to Plan B: Obama blah blah freedom blah blah generic Republican hyperbole blah.
