Brewer: Buy My Book!

Perhaps the most cynical but – unfortunately – the most realistic analysis of Jan Brewer’s latest episode of crazy comes from John McQuaid of Forbes magazine.

You can see what’s going on here. Brewer has taken the presidential meeting and found a way to extract… money. The formula is simple. Meet with the president. Then run it through a culture war blender, creating an outrage-vignette (elitist Obama condescends to the heartland). Finally, monetize the vignette by using it to grab attention and sell books.
