    overlook the obvious.  IMO, Jan Brewer suffers from Alcohol Dementia.  The backstory of her reputation and the aka Otis, backs up what I've thought for a while.  

    Yes, she is a disgrace and a lousy human being, but she also has the kind of disconnect associated with being in a constant state of intoxication.

    Alcohol dementia, which is sometimes associated with Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome, is a form of dementia caused by long-term or excessive drinking resulting in neurological damage and memory loss. Other names for the condition are alcoholic dementia, alcohol related dementia and alcohol-induced persisting dementia. Alcohol dementia causes serious cognitive problems in many alcoholics and up to 10% of patients diagnosed with dementia have a history of prolonged alcohol abuse.

    When someone is impatient and says, "I haven't got all day," I always wonder, How can that be? How can you not have all day? George Carlin
