Arizona Governor Jan Brewer stumbled right out of the gate last night in her debate with Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard.

From Politico:

"I have ... done so much and I just cannot believe that we have changed everything since I've become your governor in the last 600 days. Arizona has been brought back from its abyss," Brewer said, after appearing to lose her train of thought.

Then, after saying, "We have cut the budget, we have balanced the budget and we are moving forward. We have done everything that we could possibly do," the governor paused for 10 seconds — an eternity in a live televised debate — before looking down at her notes.

"We have ... did what was right for Arizona. I will tell you that we have really did the best that anyone could do," she said, visibly flustered.

Now there's a campaign slogan if I ever saw one. Perhaps recent investigations that several Brewer advisors have ties to private prison giant Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) has her so flustered she can't think straight. Brewer in a fit of pique has pulled campaign ads from CBS5’s KPHO.
