The State of Arizona
Arizona. Wow. How often do you find yourself saying, "Go, entrenched interests of the business community!" Yet here we are.
Responding to howls from the state's economic interests, Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill that would have allowed businesses to discriminate against gay people on the grounds of religious conviction. Brewer is an erratic politician, but she's not crazy. After all, she did once refer to the state Capitol as "that hellhole."
