Boston Marathon Explosions: Fox News Goes Straight to Clueless Joe Arpaio for Interview

The news is still unfolding about the explosions near the finish line at the Boston Marathon today, but Sheriff Joe Arpaio already has managed to exploit the situation on national television, thanks to Fox News.

"They're even after the sheriff here," Arpaio told Fox's Neil Cavuto.

As you'd expect, Arpaio knew absolutely nothing about the situation but was more than willing to exploit the dead and wounded for some attention.

"I just had a guy send me a bomb," Arpaio said (per a transcript), 13 seconds into the interview. "Fortunately, it didn't get to my office."

Cavuto asked Arpaio about national security, which, of course, Arpaio narrowed down to border security and, of course, himself.

"They're trying to do a good job at the border," he said. "I have five threats to hit me with cartels. The latest one last week, so maybe being high-profile from Washington to Maricopa County with certain groups that don't like the sheriff, and I'll tell you I'm not leaving."

Arpaio followed up amid the report on the dead and wounded in Boston, "I'll be the sheriff for many years."

Bravo, Sheriff.

Our government was clearly behind this. Only the truly ignorant, brain dead, sheep would believe the bullshit story that our government and the media are narrating.

THE NATION TODAY  Ex-official in Texas charged with making threat    APRIL 14, 2013  KAUFMAN — "A former justice of the peace who has been questioned in the killings of two prosecutors here was arrested early Saturday on charges of making a threat and other alleged offenses, officials said. The charges against the former official, Eric. L. Williams, are not believed to be connected to the killings. Williams, 46, was in custody at the Kaufman County jail in lieu of $3 million bond after being booked just after 12:30 a.m. Saturday. On March 30, the Kaufman County district attorney, Mike McLelland and his wife, Cynthia, were found shot to death. In January, an assistant district attorney, Mark E. Hasse, was gunned down.

I'm just surprised that the Joker didn't say they should remove all the sidewalks in Boston, as sidewalks are the ONLY thing that have ever hurt this clown!


Why didn't he say anything about the $500k in tax payer money HE spend because he thought the Minutemen were out to get him?  Or show tape of MCSO blowing up his neighbor's lawn ornament!

We can direct our rage to the epicenter of Alzheimers in the world, namely geezers and geezerettes of Sun City.

Because it makes complete fucking sense to interview a piss ant county fucking sheriff that was 2500 miles away and has nothing to do with it.

Sums up FOX pretty well.

@danzigsdaddy Zigs, we all deal differently with these kinds of things. Although I don't know that anyone I know was hurt or killed today in the debacle of Boston, I feel some strong feelings of depression, anger and hostility. It's good for some of us to be able to express our feelings here, just as you choose NOT to. I think most of the folks posting here today are doing so out of anger toward an elderly narcissist's obvious disregard for the injury and death perpetrated upon countless innocent victims, and is using it for his own gain. No, Zigs, it's not bullshit. It's our way of saying this whole thing totally sucks and from where we are we can't do a damn think about it.

Oh, forgot, the sheriff was from Mass. Any connections to the big media story of the day?

@Flyer9753 @OperationNorthwoods Ignorance is bliss they say. Anyone who proposes all alternative to the mainstream narrative or to questions the establishment wears a tin foil hat according ignorant like you. What research have you done? Or do you just automatically believe the media and our politicians who have been proven liars over and over and over and over and over again. Simpleton.

truth, it doesn't appear that the disgraceful old man has or had any connection to these attacks. Just a mentally sick old man looking to get his very flaccid mug on my TV. Nothing more and nothing less.

@yourproductsucks @truthseekeraz  This very sick state needs to move into the 21st century. The aging voters who have supported the aging sheriff have hurt Arizona's tourism business and the future of Arizona. Wake up 'silent" lemmings!

@WhoKnows @Tommy_Collins  

Hey Tommy and Whoknows

Danzig and I have each others real email addys and exchange mails from time to time. We would like to get yours and give you ours if you are willing.

If you guys are willing, please shoot a mail to flyer9753@yahoo.com, which is a throw away address and we will go from there to verify each other so we know who we are talking to since anyone could imitate someone via email.

What I was thinking is that tommy could verify part, not all, of whoknows address and vice versa since you two already have each others addresses.

Please let me know here if this is good with you and that you sent a mail so that if the spam filters catch it I can look for it.
