Gov. Jan Brewer gets tongue-tied over Tuskegee Airmen (VIDEO)

PHOENIX - It seemed like an ordinary speech for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer to make on Thursday.

Brewer spoke before a morning crowd to honor a group of men known as the Tuskegee Airmen. The passage of Senate Bill 1128 had been passed to assure that the airmen will be remembered and their legacy celebrated in Arizona for years to come.

Several of the renowned pilots were in the audience as Brewer honored the group which has chapters throughout the U.S.

But Brewer got tongue-tied when it came to speak about the group.

It took several attempts to get the name of the group right, with help from the crowd who gave whoops of approval when she finally got it.
