Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is taking her sweet time deciding whether to sign the bill allowing businesses to discriminate against anyone they claim religious objections to serving. Brewer, who has been in Washington, DC,
... plans to return to Arizona Tuesday, and a source tells CNN those familiar with her thinking say she will likely spend at least one full business day in the state before acting. She has until Saturday morning to sign or veto the bill. If she does nothing, the bill automatically becomes law. [...]She's been following it ... yet she's not sure what she'll do about it. Sources say Brewer is likely to veto the bill, but her delay is not exactly a profile in courage. A veto would also come after a long list of Republicans, including both of Arizona's United States senators, had urged Brewer to reject the bill, as have many business interests and the host committee of next February's Super Bowl, which will be held in the state.
"I'm going to go home, and when I receive the bill, I'm going to read it and I'm going to be briefed on it. We have been following it. And I will make my decision in the near future," Brewer told CNN.
But heaven forbid Brewer do anything hasty here. Even if she does veto it, she's first pretending that allowing businesses to refuse service to gay people is worth serious consideration over a period of days, rather than a swift "hell, no" right off the bat. Not exactly the strongest rejection of bigotry there.
