When you're busy, you're busy—and Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer is just too busy to attend the White House dinner for the nation's governors tonight, she said on Meet the Press. "You know, I am a governor," she said. "I've got priorities." Insisting she "would not disrespect the president of the United States," Brewer promises to attend a National Governors Association business meeting at the White House tomorrow, USA Today reports. Probably less chance her finger-pointing spat with Obama will come up under such formal circumstances. (More Jan Brewer stories.)
