I take solace in knowing that he's 85 and will be dead soon.

He should totally do it. And the RNC should back him to the hilt. Joe is BELOVED. It can't possibly fail.

/predict a 20+ point loss if he runs

FTFA: "I was very discouraged the way (Flake) was not in the president's corner ... about a pardon," Arpaio said. "Before making the case that I should not be pardoned right away, why didn't (Flake) look into what my whole story was?"

Sounds like he DIDlook into your whole story, Joe, and he was disgusted by what he saw: A bigoted, loathsome, racist old man who doesn't deserve to breathe, let alone receive a presidential pardon.

In other words, Joe - He was being kind when he wrote:

Fark off and die already, Joe. And do the planet a favor and get cremated, so your disgusting farking corpse doesn't turn your grave into a Superfund site.

I'm sending thoughts and prayers your way Joe. For a massive coronary.

Well, I guess this is vindication for Trump. He was worried, he'd expected higher ratings when news of the pardon came out, what with all the people paying attention to the storm. If Sheriff Joe is doing well enough to consider a run for the Senate, though, maybe it was good timing after all. Chalk up another win for Donnie! Woo!


/how do you describe the sound of dejectedly blowing air from your nose? It's not exactly a sigh...

I really hope Arpaio reconsiders this idea.

can you imagine having to write his campaign ads?
 
2017-08-29 06:19:44 AM  
no, seriously - sit down, clear your mind and try to imagine what a campaign ad for Joe Arpaio would look and sound like.

now imagine having to sell that sort of garbage to a couple of TV stations.

The worst part about all this is it turns Flake into a sympathetic character. He is not.

Donald Trump is on a personal quest to be the biggest, dumbest asshole in American politics, worse than even other Republicans, and goddamn if he's not making serious headway.
 
2017-08-29 06:28:19 AM  
At 85, I don't think he can do a lot of running.

Here you go.

I heard his interview on the NYT's podcast yesterday morning.  He is a slimey mutherfocker who knows how to manipulate people.  You can tell he gets upset when people see through it.

It's literally the easiest campaign ad set ever created. You just double down on the bullshiat Trump said. shiat, for half the ads you sample what Trump said. Hero. Doing his job. Attacked by special interests. Protecting America's borders. Protecting you. Law and order.

Sure it's all bullshiat. But it plays.

Sydney Bridges: Jesus. Time the senate got their own gynecologist.


That's over the line. A lot of men and a fair share of women like lady parts. Way more than they like the Senate, anyway.

He should be tossed into a Superfund site and left to drown in the arsenic tainted waters at the bottom of a mining pit.

To be fair, it's hard to put words in their mouth when you have to slide it in edgeways up their ass between their neck and ankle.

this. 'Strong on law and order'. Scared, stupid white people would lap it up.
 
2017-08-29 06:54:04 AM  
Considering that Arpaio's pardon doesn't extend to state or civil suits, he's in for a bumpy ride still, and I guess I can see wanting to skim off campaign donations in a TOTALLY legal fashion...

His term as our new Homeland Security director will make a great springboard for his senate run.

Leonard Cohen, Prince and David Bowie have to die, but assholes like Pat Roberts and this guy get to live long, full lives.  maybe there really isn'ta god.

So in your scenario I take it neither brown people nor anyone that is friends with them is allowed to vote?

They absolutely are entitled to vote, unless they've been rounded up the week of the election and detained on suspicion of being an illegal immigrant based solely on the color of their skin.

He needs the money and can use campaign funds to pay off some debts.

I love the creativity here, but he should be made to spend his last year on earth in one of his tent prisons, destitute after the civil suits have drained him of every penny he's ever made. Found dead stone cold in his pink gotch and sandals under one of his thin blankets in January. POS needs a lasting taste of his own medicine.

Outside of Phoenix, Arpaio is despised and feared among Arizonans.  No way he goes to Senate.

I'm familiar with the derisive snort, but it's much shorter than what I was attempting to describe. This is longer, like a sigh it is drawn out, but it comes from the nose rather than the mouth. It is also frequently accompanied by placing your hand over your eyes, the thumb and index finger along your brow. A sound of resignation. Perhaps it's still a sigh,though that seems imprecise. We need more words for the various levels and expressions of exasperation.
