Brewer book gets endorsement from Sarah Palin

PHOENIX -- Jan Brewer's self-described attack on the liberal media is done and her book will be on shelves in less than a month.

But first, a word from Sarah Palin.

Brewer told Capitol Media Services she confers regularly with the former Alaska governor. And she sent Palin an advance copy of her book, Scorpions for Breakfast, asking her for a foreword.

Palin obliged.

"It's not surprising,' Brewer said. She noted that Palin came to Arizona last summer to have a joint press conference to defend SB 1070. That measure, approved earlier last year by the Legislature, is designed to give police more power to detain and arrest suspected illegal immigrants.

"She's been a very big supporter of what Arizona is doing in regards to the crime on the border and the illegal immigration,' Brewer said.

"She's someone that I've always admired,' the governor continued. "I appreciate the fact that she's stepped forward and did it.'

Brewer won't share what Palin wrote, at least not yet.

"She said great things,' was all Brewer would disclose. "It's very special, I think, to have somebody of a national stature of Sarah, a person whom I admire, another woman in politics, who's had battles of her own, join with me on the battle on border security and illegal immigration.'

And the governor said no decision has been made whether to provide copies of the book for review in advance of its Nov. 1 release date.

The central theme of Brewer's book is described in its subtitle, is "My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America's Border.' The governor said she is writing the book to get out what she says is the real story about border security and illegal immigration "and not have all this liberal media spreading THEIR take on what's taking place in Arizona.'

But Brewer said that problem does not start at the state's borders.

"I think that it has been misinterpreted by some of the media here in Arizona,' she said.

Still, that did not keep the governor from making her pitch to sell a copy to a reporter.

"You're going to love it,' she said.

"It's really a great book,' Brewer continued. "I think it's very easy reading, but it's very factual.'

Brewer sidestepped questions of whether she thought Palin would join in the hunt for the Republican presidential nomination.

"I think there's still time' for her to get in the race,' the governor said. But Brewer said no one -- including Palin -- should expect an endorsement, at least not yet.

"I'm not signing up until I have my debate,' Brewer said, referring to the Dec. 1 debate among GOP contenders scheduled for Arizona.

Not difficult to believe that Governor Brewer would be instrumental in helping Governor Palin formulate an immigration policy.
