Morning Poll: Will Joe Arpaio Even Live Long Enough to Serve Another Term as Sheriff?

Yesterday marked Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's 79th birthday.


Yet the aging law dog swears he plans to run for another four-year term as sheriff -- laughably, he's also not ruled out a run for the presidency.

As a reader pointed out in the comment section of New Times' official "happy birthday" to America's self-proclaimed "toughest sheriff" blog post, this means Arpaio would be celebrating his 80th birthday on the campaign trail for a job that requires him to -- at the very least -- live for another four years.

We hate to get morbid, but come on! Whether Arpaio will even live long enough to serve out another term is a legitimate question voters should be asking.

We wouldn't sign a contract with an 80-year-old man to water our lawn for four years, let alone to run one of the largest law enforcement agencies in the country.

Will Arpaio become the Joe Paterno of the MCSO -- a confused, old recruitment tool who will occasionally shit himself in the middle of an employer sanctions operation illegal immigrant roundup?

Or will the sheriff just one day cease to be, leaving the residents of Maricopa County in the predicament of finding a new sheriff (and paying off his legal bills)?

This post reads much better with a little cowbell. Hit play and start over. 

We want to know what you think: will Joe Arpaio even live long enough to serve another term as sheriff?

Disturbing thought of the day-

Joe Arpaio's dick is so short and shriveled it looks exactly like Joe Arpaio.


I would hope that he lives long enough to answer for his criminal behavior.  I don't think he will be re-elected, except for the fact that he has a war chest of cash that can buy an election.


The real question is can he stay unindicted long enough to even run for another term


I highly doubt that Joe Arpaio will see another term as MCSO shurf.

He is under tight scrutiny by the feds for alleged abuse of power. When they will act remains a mystery.

He's also 79. I think the time has come for the Flaccid Fool to call it quits before the stress of running a RICO police agency puts him in the hospital.

He could also resign as MCSO shurf. Unlikely that will happen.


Queen Elizabeth II is 85.  Her husband just turned 90.  Her mother lived past 100.  She has the same job as Joe: Show up wherever it will generate publicity.
