Gov. Jan Brewer sure is taking her sweet time to decide whether to veto a bill that would allow Arizona businesses to discriminate against LGBT citizens under the guise of religious freedom. She has until Friday to take action before the bill becomes law. Maybe these tweets will help her make the right choice.

On the bright side of this whole gay bill, if you're an Olympian returning home to Arizona, it will still feel like Russia.

Today in 1863, Arizona was organized as a territory. And by "territory," we mean, "a bunch of idiots who hate gays and immigrants."

Arizona: where, despite the fact that we're #48 in education, my legislature decides our most pressing issue is whether gays can buy stuff.

Arizona seems like a great place to live in 1874.

If Arizona passes that anti-gay bill I don't know where I'm going to go for my decorative, sun-bleached cattle skulls!
