Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer, according to her bio, has spent all of her life in the West.

Given this, she might be forgiven for butchering the pronunciation of small Alabama towns like, say, Notasulga or Sylacauga or Andalusia. However, there's one small Alabama town in Macon County which should be familiar to most - if not all - Americans. There was a horrible "experiment," a famed historically black college that has produced some notable alumni and then there are the courageous airmen from World War II. And let's not forget this scientist and his incredible work, most of which was accomplished in this town.

Yet yesterday, poor Gov. Brewer just couldn't manage to properly pronounce "Tuskegee" at an event honoring the Tuskegee Airman.

Way to keep at it, governor, it'll come eventually. By the way, you wouldn't believe how we Alabamians pronounce the name of this town.
