Yahoo News reporting:
Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County, Ariz., responded to George Lopez’s profanity-filled tirade against him by telling the comedian to come meet with him.”Get some guts, come down here and meet me face to face. Let’s see how you act then,” Arpaio, known as “America’s Toughest Sheriff,” told ABC affiliate KNXV.
Joke sheriff calls out comedian. Fitting in a way. I may actually have been impressed if Arpaio asked to meet Lopez on neutral ground. In Maricopa County, Sheriff Joe would probably ask Lopez for his papers, plant drugs on him, and set him up in a tent city dressed in black and white.
More from “America’s Craziest Sheriff”:
“What is he, the spokesman for the open border people?” Arpaio told KNXV. “See, I can be funny too. Now let’s see if he has the guts to meet me, and I’ll be happy to take him to a Mexican lunch.”
Wait. What part of that was supposed to be funny? I guess we can cross comedian off the list of future careers for Sheriff Joe once the citizens of Maricopa County get off whatever drugs they’re taking that cause them to keep electing him.
On the plus side, attacking a comedian who dares to make jokes about a joke sheriff is better than continuing the idiotic investigation into the Presidents birth certificate, I suppose.
Arpaio will release new information at a news conference Tuesday regarding Obama’s eligibility to be president. The information is part of a six-month on-going investigation of the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate by Arpaio and his Cold Case Posse.
