Herman Cain Coming to Phoenix to Pucker Up For Joe Arpaio

Godfather's Pizza CEO/Gop presidential candidate Herman Cain.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio met with leaders from the Methodist Border Mission Network at his Phoenix office this afternoon to discuss -- amongst other things -- some issues the group has with the sheriff's policies towards illegal immigration.

But that's not the big news -- the big news is that presidential candidate Herman Cain is coming to town next week to pucker up to Arpaio's derriere with the hopes that he'll endorse his candidacy.

"By the way...I have four presidential candidates, running for president, two have called, one has been here in this room," the sheriff inexplicably bragged to the Methodists during a discussion about immigration. "On Monday another one will be in this room talking to me. I'm talking about Herman Cain."

Given the recent problem's with the sheriff's 79-year-old memory, we figured we'd double check with MCSO spokesman Lieutenant Justin Griffin, who confirms to New Times that Cain and Arpaio are scheduled to meet on Monday.

And, of course, Griffin says the sheriff will likely hold a press conference.

Cain is just the latest GOP presidential candidate to pucker up for Arpaio.

Last month, Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann came to Phoenix to beg for the sheriff's endorsement. According to Arpaio, Texas Governor Rick Perry and former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney have also asked for his political nod.

Arpaio, as you're probably aware, is the face of the far-right-wing-nut crusade against illegal immigration, so his endorsement carries a lot of weight in a Republican primary.

The sheriff, however, has not said which candidate he'll endorse in the GOP primary -- probably because he's having way too much fun lately bragging about how presidential hopefuls acknowledge his existence.

We'll leave you with a fabulous Arpaio quote from this afternoon's meeting with the Methodists:

"I like all Mexicans -- I don't care what country they're from."

If anyone knows a Mexican from a country other than Mexico, please let us know.

Does the term "Uncle Tom" ring a bell Herman?

Herman Cain, former Federal Reserve Bankster, this part of his resume' they are trying to hide.  Herman Cain calls OWS protestors anti-capitalist.  Herman Cain is touted as a job creator - well tell me how is it can you outsource pizza delivery to China?  I am sure that if he could have, he would have.

Joker heard "The Godfather's Guy" and thought he might finally become a member of the inner circle...

Just don't tell Herm that the sheriff's favorite pizza comes from Taco Bell, not Godfathers.

There are no Godfather's pizza resturants within 200 miles of Phx.  Herman killed off the chain!

Joe is a great guy. He is so funny. I love his jokes about Mexicans.

That is rude Jason. You remind me of that liberal freak Loughner. I hope you don't kill your fellow filthy liberal slimebags.

You are making shit up. Enough with the racist email theory only you have evidence of, but can't provide for fear of your friend getting in trouble, bullshit.

Well, skanky set the tone by thinking joe is funny and then loving joes racist jokes. I guess as a fan of joes skanky is on a special mailing list of these mexican jokes, perhaps the same list that circulates the racist cartoons floating around mcso's intranet.

I find jasons response not that inapprpriate considering he probably finds no humor in the number of people that have unnecessarily died in jail under joes watch, or maybe it is all the millions of dollars in tax money that joe lost for us that jason does not find funny and takes extreme offense at. Though it may just be an over reaction on jasons part to some sarcastic quips attempted by skanky. I am not exactly sure.

And the logical fallacies that riddle the statement, gut it of being relevent, besides no more rude or possibly ruder than jason.

The real thing that is really humorous, imho, is that there are probably as many, if not more, filthy conservative slimebags for however many liberal slimebag are out there. Just look at pierce and his supporters or arpaio and his sweaty geriatric pot bellied sheriff's posse.

The senile, liar shurf JoKKKe ARRPie hole should worry about clearing outstanding warrant rather than giving his Kiss of Death endorsment to any Republi-Con canidate.As for Herman Cain,you can stick that 9-9-9 up your ass-ass-ass!

I would expect a man of color to be smarter.

Somebody needs to call and let Cain know, this guy is a county sheriff in a politically shitty state. Nothing gained by trying to be his friend.

But, again, we have no clue why Cain is meeting with the Old Bastard. If he really is.,..

Obama met with Arpaio too. Do you feel the same way about him, i mean, since he is a man of color and all.

Walter Concrete

Why would you expect a person of color to be any smarter than anyone else?    Turn it around and listen to how racist that sounds.    Are you running for office too?

Tommy Collins

Point well taken, Walter, thank you. I guess I would have expected Cain to be more sensitive to the apparent criminal violations against people of color, by the MCSO sheriff. Maybe someone on Cain's staff needs to do some research on the real guy who pretends to be sheriff in Maricopa County. Not running for office, Walter. And, I'm an Independent.

Bnbk, I appreciate you having my back on this, but answering YPS is simply akin to pissing into the wind, which we both know is not a good idea. YPS is actually a good person, I think., He just gets pissy because I criticize the MCSO shurf and some of it's employees openly. He also thinks that because I am retired from law enforcement I couldn't possibly have any recollection of what it might be today. But, my 22 year old step son in Florida thinks the same thing, so that's ok.

Again, thank you!

The hell it wasn't,get your facts straight.

That case was not about racial profiling. Get your facts straight before entering the ring.

Julio & Julian Mora,to name one,but there are more. All you have to do is do a little research. It's all right here in the PNT,it won't take much to look up the facts YPS. BTW,that little case of racial profiling cost us,the Maricopa County taxpayers a tidy little sum of 200k. I'll give you one but next time do your own research !

Prove your assertion of "apparent" criminal violations against people of color.

Give one example where a "person of color" has received compensation after having proven that same "person of color" had his/her rights violated by any member of the Sheriffs Office due to his/her ethnic origin. Just one example is all I ask...

Looking forward to Cain's dead presidential campaign... Just look at Rick Perry.

Another epic failure in the works...
