Brewer Uses Faux-Kermit Puppet Video To Sell Immigration Law
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer's re-election campaign is aiming to sell Arizona's new immigration law to voters with a new new sing-along video starring a puppet with striking resemblance to Sesame Street's Kermit the Frog.
The one-minute spot comes roughly a month after Brewer signed-off on controversial immigration legislation that critics argue will lead to racial profiling.
In the video with the frog puppet, Brewer mocks her opponents who have come out against the law, but admit to not having actually read its text in full.
"O.K. kids, ready? let's sing along," flashes across the screen in the beginning of the spot. Then to a children's tune, "Kermit" reminds Brewer's political foes -- who are belittled to youngsters -- that "reading is, really super swell."
