Only two governors showed up at Jan Brewer's keynote speech to Governors

and the two that showed up were basically like her mom and dad, they had to show up.

PARADISE VALLEY, Ariz. -- Although she was introduced as a political rock star Saturday, Gov. Jan Brewer wasn't a very big draw.

The Western Governors' Association held its annual winter meeting in Paradise Valley. But of the 19 governors in the group, only two showed up to see Brewer deliver a brief keynote speech.

During the three-minute address, Brewer bragged about the state's agricultural production and her record of recruiting renewable energy businesses to Arizona.

"Since 2010, 12 renewable energy companies have relocated or expanded their operations here in Arizona, creating more than 1,900 new jobs and more than $1 billion in capital investment," Brewer said.

Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) and Utah Gov. Gary Herbert (R) were the two governor's who attended the meeting. They are the current vice chairman and chairman of the organization.

2. Anyone as disrespectful of others and as disagreeable...

will eventually find themselves left out.

I'm guessing she's an embarassment and no one's interested in what she has to say.
