Did Sarah Palin Snub Jan Brewer? [UPDATED]

(AP Photo, 02-27-11)

By now, Jan Brewer is back in Arizona. I'm assuming there was a massive ticker-tape parade upon her return. But what happened to her plans to meet with the Sarah Palin? Granted, the news reports which mentioned the scheduled meeting were a little hazy, and Brewer herself never said she was going to meet with Palin,  but as far as I can tell, it didn't happen.

Maybe it did happen and nobody said anything about it? Unlikely. If Jan had basked in Sarah's presence, you can bet the photos would have been up on her Facething fence (wall? Whatever the kids call it) within seconds.

Maybe it was never supposed to happen and people just assumed that the two would meet because why else would Brewer go to Alaska?

Or maybe it was supposed to happen and Sarah had one of her many "Oops, did I schedule that?" moments, only to realize that there she was, off shooting dinner while Jan waited patiently and fruitlessly with her photographer?

I prefer the last scenario, of course. I love the idea of Jan Brewer traveling all the way to Alaska for the sole purpose of getting a photo-op with Sarah Palin, and all she got was some lousy t-shirt.

These questions, of course, will dominate my week. Speaking of questions, go ahead and stare at the photo at the top of this post and contemplate –really contemplate– Jan's hair.

UPDATE: It looks like Jan did briefly enter the orbit of the Todd Palin while "enjoying" the Iditarod. That's close, but no banana.

UPDATE: Interesting that in a blog post at the Arizona Republic about Sarah Palin's choice of Arizona as a possible base for her campaign,  there is the following vagueness:

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, who spent the weekend vacationing in Alaska, said she didn't have any conversations with Palin about a possible Senate run while she was in town and that the topic never came up.

Note that the statements above imply that Brewer talked to Palin this weekend without actually stating it. If Brewer didn't meet Palin, the above statements would still be true. Clever! I still find it impossible to believe a Palin/Brewer meeting without photo-ops.

Looks like her hair line has receeded to mid-scalp. The longer I look at the picture, the more I'm convinced she's a lizard person.

Way at the end of the run of Gunsmoke, there was a spin off character who had her own show for about a month called Dirty Sally. Now, in the episode of Gunsmoke she was on, her oft-repeated big dream was "store-bought teeth" She was a plucky ol' frontier gal with a shrewd eye and a heart of gold, a lonely hermit out on the prairie.

(spoiler!) At the end of the episode, she got all cleaned up and had her store bought teeth in. And i hadn't remembered her at all until I began studying this picture.

You people are so catty and shallow. Reading your comments, you'd think there was nothing more important to a female politician than her appearance.

Oh, wait... I just looked at the calendar and it still reads 2011, so... never mind.

Obviously Sarah didn't want the photo-op because there's no way she could have out-grizzlied ol' Jingo Jan.

She looks like she has had a hard life of drinking and drugging. Her inability to speak without a teleprompter may indicate drug use or dementia. I knew this women was bad news when I saw her stumping with McInsane/$alin. The hospitals have offered a deal that would pay for the people she wants to kick off health care. The Republicons are going crazy here they want to do away with all Medicare. In the paper today they passed doing away with help for homeowners who owe more on their house than it's worth and help for people who have been laid off for a long time. This was TARP money. The Dems tried to get them to exclude seniors and military, but they voted against it. Repubicons are going wild against 98% of the American people. They won't stop until they have control over everyone and all the wealth. I hope people rise up soon and put a stop to these fascist before it's too late. They have taken over almost all media, they repeat their lies over and over, they cause fighting between fellow citizens. We must not be quite keep spreading the word.

My father, a lifelong horseman, would have said she looked "rode hard and put away wet."
