Jan Brewer's successor probably won't be as flamboyant

(CNN) - It's not clear who might try to succeed Jan Brewer as governor of Arizona next year, but chances are good that whoever it is won't be quite as flamboyant.

The finger-wagging, gun-loving politician, known as a firebrand who exhibits flashes of moderation, announced on Wednesday that she would "pass the torch of leadership" and not run for reelection. Her term ends in January.

    Never underestimate the Republican party's ability to find a bigger nut case.

    Wrong, CNN, this is Arizona, there is a high probability that if we get a Republican Governor, "you ain't seen nothin' yet".

    Good news for citizens of Arizona. They deserve better than the likes of Jan Brewer. Gun toting firebrands do not make good leaders.

    well that wouldn't take much. But if it is a repo alas I think they will probably be a nut job. Runs in the party and it's members. Looney tunes one and all.

    As soon as she retires, I suggest that she use her free time wisely.

    Purchase a 55 gallon drum of moisturizer, and submerse herself for say, 48 hours.

    Rinse and repeat.

    Flamboyant is not the word I would use to describe the person that wagged her finger in the face of the POTUS while seemingly chewing him out on the tarmac. Flamboyant? That's not even close, moving in the opposite direction.
