Joe Arpaio, "Media Whore," Pimps The Joe Show in Hollywood

Thumbnail image for FeatheredBastard_RESIZE_VF.jpg

Should it surprise anyone that Sheriff Joe Arpaio, once called a "media whore" by his own PR flack, will be flying to Los Angeles for the red-carpet screening of a documentary that's highly critical of him?

Still, I'm a little annoyed by news of Arpaio's attending a showing of director/producer Randy Murray's The Joe Show this Wednesday at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre, formerly known as Grauman's Chinese Theater.

This is the last guy in the world who needs ego-fluffing....

That's because the documentary, which I praised in a column earlier this year, purports to show how Arpaio and his PR staff use the media to bamboozle the public, increase his celebrity and get him re-elected every four years.

Now Joe's gonna help pimp the film during the flick's presentation this week at the Beverly Hills Film Festival. Hence his appearance at Grauman's.

Irony alert.

Arpaio's shilling for The Joe Show would be like Russian despot Vladimir Putin plugging the anti-Putin HBO doc Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, or the NRA endorsing Bowling for Columbine, or Sea World offering ticket-buyers free DVDs of the film Blackfish.

In other words, gross.

So I had to ring up producer Randy Murray, and ask him, "Randy, WTF?"

Murray admitted that he had invited the octogenarian oaf to the Hollywood event, though he swore Arpaio was paying his own way.

And he answered my question with a question.

"Is there anything that could be more proof of the premise of our film than Joe embracing it?" he asked.

The photo Mr. Lemons uses of the dilapidated old fool reminds me of Hitler....

Anybody want to bet that, at the last minute, he comes up with some bullshit excuse about why he can't go. 


Chickenshit that he is.


ALSO...............anybody else think this "Bogus" lawsuit against Joe and Nancy Grace supposedly filed by Jody Arias----is an INSIDE job?

Since he can't profile Latinos to get his name on the news, a phony lawsuit will get him some airtime.

Wait a minute....how's the old man getting around LA?

They won't let him drive around there... too many boulders he'd crash in to and total his rental car.

Someone needs to inform Judge Snow of this bullshit. Then we'll see who's laughing.

May 7 can't come soon enough....

Careful about that Hollywood Walk of Fame, Joe, you might trip on someone else's star.

Will someone have copies of the letter Snow made Joke write where he admits to racial profiling and violating the constitutional rights of 1000's of Americans? 



Someone can ask him for an autograph, and he's jump at signing it!

Media Whore is so apropos. He'll use feigned outrage at the movie to generate yet another $3.5 million from the nativist bigots for a gubernatorial race he'll never run and couldn't win if he did.

Once Arpaio slithers down the side walk in front of the Chinese Theatre the walks name will have to be changed to the "walk of Shame."

Did anyone tell Arpaio that Hitler doesn't have a star on the sidewalk?

Arpaio is probably only going in hopes of a T.S.A. cavity search?!

People at the Chinese Theatre, please spackle all sidewalk cracks, and be sure your property insurance and workers I.D.'s are  current.

I'm sure "America's Toughest?Sheriff" will need a security entourage to protect his racist, corrupt ass while he's in California.


Who's footing the bill for that?

@shadeaux I've been thinking about the lawsuit .............I think smurf joe had someone file it . He has to be THE biggest media WHORE in the world (not that arias isn't}, but smurf has more priors on this media prostitution! I heard someone mention that it was fat dave ?    I think joe put someone up to it.

@MaskedMagician1967  I don't think the Joker has driven since that landscape boulder jumped under is county crown vic at a drug store and totaled it.  Poor Joey was so shook up, that MCSO stopped the local PD from giving him a breath test!

@DNichols  

Wonder if he'll trip over the sidewalk and claim its another death threat.

@DNichols  Wait Dnichols.  We KNOW that the Clown Sheriff has GREAT problems with sidewalks, and those stars and hand prints will give the joker a wealth of opportunities to trip!  Recall that the last time he attempted to walk on a sidewalk he got laid up for 3 months.

@DNichols I hope all that excitement will give him a one-way trip to the hospital. Either way, according to Murray--he's paying on his own. Whatever the price is, he's paying for it. Whether the outcome proves the unexpected or a dismay to the American sector that opposes him.


L.A. has better hand it to him real good. So he can get the idea that he's despised, not admired. A rotten egg to the head will do just fine.

@mostimptmealoftheday Well yeah, and then we'll find that he violated that person's constitutional rights and we'll pay for yet another Arpaio fuck-up just like we always do.

@shadeaux  If the Clown Sheriff goes to LA for no MCSO releated  reason, his pimpled pink butt should pay EVERY dime of the cost of his "boy rangers" that protect him from hairdressers and cracks in the sidewalk!!

Exactly my point WhoKnows. How's the old mangetting around LA?

@Cozz @DNichols  He does need something to distract his idiot fans, and "death threat" is his go-to...  Just ask James Saville....

@Original American

A "Rotten Egg"  thrown by a Canadian teenager would be great, but one by a proud Hispanic would do just fine too.

Wow, I thought I was the only one who remembered Joe and Henderschott having to call for back up to handle a drunk, gay, male hairdresser in a parking lot dispute.
