"I am hoping that I can be known as a great writer and actor some day, rather than a sex symbol." - Steven Seagal
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office confirmed to New Times yesterday that he's assigned an "elite posse" to look into President Barack Obama's "fake birth certificate" before allowing his name on the presidential ballot in Arizona next year.

No...seriously...you're not reading The Onion -- Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio has assembled an "elite posse" to investigate Barack Obama's continuously debunked alleged "fake birth certificate."

Read all about it here.

We've also heard a few unconfirmed rumors that Steven Seagal might be coming back to town for a cameo appearance with the MCSO.

In case you forgot, the last time Seagal was in town, Arpaio staged a jail shakedown, rolled out a tank to arrest a cock-fighter, and allegedly killed a puppy -- all in the name of reality TV.

The sheriff's never-ending antics recently helped earn Arizona the title of the "meth lab of democracy," and the hit-hungry blogsters at Gawker recently named the Grand Canyon State the worst state in the entire country. Gawker cited Maricopa County's "insane lunatic cowboy wannabe" sheriff as part of the reason for Arizona's being the worst of the worst.

The humiliation Arizona suffers at the hands of Joe Arpaio never seems to end. But we want to know which of the latest acts of media sluttiness is most humiliating?

Many serious Americans question Obama's birth certificate.  His own GRANDMOTHER said he was born in Kenya, for goodness sake.  And why won't Hawaii allow access to the certificate? And why can't we see his college records?  We know even the GPA's of other Presidents and Presidential Contenders.  Not allowing access only fuels the flames that Obama received funding as a noncitizen in California during his first years of college.  And why is it that nobody remembers him from his upper class college experience?  Perhaps because he wasn't there?Ignoring all these issues and mocking someone else make you, the writer, look like the uninformed one.

You have your head "in the sand" to use the less appropriate but more polite term. The birth certificate posted by the White House is a crude and OBVIOUS Forgery. What does it take to get people to put aside their preconceived notions and ideology and just look at the facts? There are hundreds of experts who can prove this, in too many ways to list here. A simple search will get you on your way to enlightenment. So what's your problem?

Arizona is a beautiful state, what screws up any idea of moving there  is the far right wing Republican nuts that have controlled Arizona politics forever.Remember the 1964 Goldwater election and the John Bircher's(right wing nuts) same as bible thumping religious fanatics and tea bagging lunatics now in control of the state.Until the republican party throws off the shackles of the far right crazies Arizona will be what it is, a state of beautiful deserts  and mountains led by the insanity of the far right political ideology.

Why in the hell would the pendulous pendejo even WANT Steven Seagal back? As a further reminder of his disastrous chicken raid clusterfuck? Because he has another puppy he wants killed? Because disgusting bloated losers stick together? This is unfathomable to me.

PS, Seagal's aikido sucks the schwettyballz.

Is this law Racist? Are the people who agree with this law racist?Are those who want this law enforced racist?Under Title 8 Section 1325 of the U.S. Code, "Improper Entry by Alien," any citizen of any country other than the United States who:Enters or attempts to enter the United States at any time or place other than as designated by immigration officers; or Eludes examination or inspection by immigration officers; or Attempts to enter or obtains entry to the United States by a willfully false or misleading representation or the willful concealment of a material fact; has committed a federal crime.Violations are punishable by criminal fines and imprisonment for up to six months. Repeat offenses can bring up to two years in prison. Additional civil fines may be imposed at the discretion of immigration judges, but civil fines do not negate the criminal sanctions or nature of the offense.

Concerning the next election and the "fake" birth certificate: Do you really think that a non-Republican could ever carry  the state in a presidential election? AZ  voters want a right wingnut in the White House, but if Shurf Joe could block Obama from the ballot, it would be the ultimate power trip for the old geezer. He might even get a "firm on."

You want to know what scares me most? That the cons will play the fear card and enough sheeple will buy into it to actually elect one of these tea party throwbacks. Can you begin to imagine what a horror show this country will be after a few years of someone like Bachman or Romney in the White House.
