What's the Dumbest Thing Joe Arpaio Said in Response to the Justice Department Lawsuit?

Thumbnail image for joefatass.jpg
Joe Arpaio had a thing or two to say about the lawsuit yesterday, and one of those things involves basketball with the president.
Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio was sued by the Justice Department yesterday over racial-discrimination claims, and not surprisingly, Arpaio had a little more than two cents to give to everyone yesterday.

His responses ranged from the Justice Department having the wrong guy, wanting to play basketball with President Obama, and saying he could just get reelected on the basis of pink underwear.

Given his wide range of responses, we're letting you choose the dumbest for this morning's poll.

(All of the sources are linked in the letter before the statement.)

A) "I'll see 'em in court, and I love going to court."

B) "They caught the wrong sheriff on this matter."

C) "This thing is gonna go away."

D) "I wish [President Obama] would invite me to the White House. He invited the police sergeant from Cambridge, locking up a professor -- remember, he stuck his nose in that -- brought 'em to the White House to have some beer. I'd be glad to go over and have some wine, and tell him about my 14 years as a top law enforcement official in Mexico, in the border, and give him some advice. That's what I would talk to him about, but you know he's not gonna invite me to the White House...A wine summit. And play a little basketball. He likes basketball."

E) "I'm very happy that we are being sued."

F) "I can be re-elected on pink underwear."

So Arpayaso wants to talk his "14 years as a top law enforcement official in Mexico"?  Does he mean "review his file"?  You know Obama already has read Arpayaso's secret file from his time as  a DEA agent with the U.S. Government.  I'm guessing all of Arpayaso's contacts from the underworld that is the Mexican Mafia will be in there, and his government official contact list - the ones he got dirt on so he could blackmail them.  Then there's the work reviews - that ought to be a doosy considering Arpayaso was known as "Nickel Bag Joe".  Maybe he could also discuss how Apayaso worked with Nixon to bring in Heroin to the USA so they could fund the Italian Resistance?

The old sociopath Sheriff talks smack in interviews, but in court on the witness stand under oath he is (mostly) humble and forgetful. Will be good to see him as a defendant.

Dumbest comment by Joe Arpaio in response to the Justice Department lawsuit? Hmmmm, so many to choose from. The fact that he is happy he is being sued, or maybe the bad Obama/basketball joke? Wait -- he must think he's dreaming when he said "This thing is gonna go away."

Well, one thing hasn't changed with Arpaio finally getting sued by the feds; he's still an arrogant dellusional idiot.

Well, Arpaio's always done well putting on a pretty good dog and pony show ... and this is going to be one damned expensive show!

Let's do our best to make sure Arpaio's show gets an anti-climax ending.

Let's elect ourselves a new sheriff, a competent law enforcement professional, in November.

So long Arpaio!

 Something that OSB should be confronted on:  A few weeks ago, he was quizzed about inaccurate statements he made and his response on camera was to paraphrase: "I didn't make those statements under oath, like in a courtroom or anything like that." 

That statement tells me that OSB has zero scruples against lying to us any time and even every time he speaks.  Under oath, it is "I don't recall"  "I don't know" "I am not responsible for my department"  "I manage 13,000 people" 

Even OSB acknowledges that he lies when his mouth moved based on his statements that I noted above.

Sheriff Joe wants to have Wine at the White House?  He better not have one and leave a Restaurant here in the Valley or he will be in Jail based on the stupidest law in the history of our state calledwhich Impaired to the Slightest Degree  does not require the .08 BAC Level to prosecute.  He is breaking his own enforcement policies.

  "I manage 13,000 people."

Sure he does.  Except when one of them is proven to have done something particularly heinous.  Then he doesn't.  Then it's not his fault.  Even his 2nd in command was free to do whatever he wanted, if you listen to Arpaio.  Well, after the guy was fired.  Because, before he was fired Joe sure supported him.

Good points, Gerry.

 Yeah Frank and he would probably expect them to serve him fried chicken and watermelon too.

The un-funny part of this is how much it will cost the taxpayers.

I think I recall a story about Arpaio running into something while driving a car in Ftn Hills.  Maybe that is when he decided he needed a driver.

No no no Guest, you've got it all wrong!  While in a parking lot, THE BOULDER somehow smashed itself into Arpaio's brand new Crown Victoria, even managing to break the drive shaft.

Arpaio's also floated around another version of the story that his car malfunctioned and smashed itself into the boulder.
