Joe Arpaio Pissy Over Pro-Pot T-Shirt Bearing His Image

Joe hates this t-shirt
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's panties are in a bunch over a t-shirt that's being distributed by Arizona's "Weed Party." The t-shirt is pro-prop-203, shows a picture of a pot leaf, and pictures Arpaio suckin' on a weed pipe.

We have one in our office -- it's very hip.

The sheriff took to Twitter to piss and moan about the shirt, which was distributed near polling places on election day to try and drum up support for the medical marijuana proposition -- which may or may not pass.

"I am outraged at this. I have devoted my life to fighting crime and drugs. A matter of free speech though," Arpaio "tweeted" on Tuesday.


Don't let the geriatric law dog trick you into thinking he's a crusader for free speech -- in case you forgot, he had the owners of this newspaper jailed when he didn't like some of the things they had to say.

The t-shirt is the product of the t-shirt designer "Arise Now" on behalf of Arizona's "Weed Party," which supports the medical marijuana initiative.

The "Arise Now" Web site is creepy. It's nothing more than a few odd designs with the words "coming soon" on the right side of the page. Some speculate the group is a would-be marijuana dispensary waiting for the medical marijuana initiative to pass.

The laugh is on all of you. Prop 203 failed. You get caught, there are consequences....get it!Rules are rules, even if they are inconvenient for you.

I find it quite amusing that America's biggest loudmouth has been reduced to 140 characters or less. Aslo remember that the Shurf claimed in deposition that he's never used a computer, that one of his bloated PR staff Tweets for him.

Tommy,

I was noting that AARPaio seems pretty silent about the MCSO big picture these days. Of course he will pick up anything that gets his name out there. I think it is a Pavlovian response

On the big issues facing MCSO, he is just silent these days. Then there was the article today about how he did not appear at any of the Republican victory parties. The author suggested that AARPaio was, gasp, "irrelevant."

Mikey,You have a point about the character limits. Most of AARPaio's speeches are a collection of old worn out short bursts of Shurf breath.

With all the issues facing our "beloved" Sheriff, I can't believe he would waste a minute to tweet about these shirts. I guess nickel bag minds think small.

Yes on 203

And Twitter is perfect for people with small minds... He and Sarah Palin are perfect for Twitter, if you ask me. Have them make any statement that requires more than 140 characters, and they get into trouble...

Gerry, I didn't vote for the weed issue, but I would wear that T-shirt into MCSO just to piss of the Flaccid Fool. Since when does he care about the root of ANY free press?
