Scorpions for Breakfast

Gov. Jan Brewer met President Barack Obama when Air Force One landed in Mesa on Wednesday, saying she wanted to hand-deliver an invitation to sit down with her to discuss state issues. Brewer was photographed wagging her finger at the president, and later said Obama "was a little disturbed about my book" and called him "very thin-skinned."

Obama later said, "I think it's always good publicity for a Republican if they're in an argument with me."

It certainly did prove good for book sales.

“I respect the office of the president. I was there to welcome him.”
