MSNBC on Arpaio: “least trusted law enforcement official”

I don’t usually watch the liberal-leaning MSNBC cable network, but one of my Google alerts pointed me to this clip that sets the standard, I think, for putting down Sheriff Joe Arpaio. While this is far from straight-up news reporting, I think it’s probably true. This is included in response to some of the birthers posting here spinning Joe into the soul of integrity in law enforcement, contrasted to MSNBC who describes him as: “one of the country’s least trusted law enforcement officials.”

    Truth Team on Facebook:

    Yesterday, Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio held a press conference to announce that—after a six-month investigation—he’s concluded the President’s birth certificate is a fake. Too bad Sheriff Arpaio didn’t have this coffee mug: he could have saved himself some time.

    as it becomes more apparent that Sheriff Joe’s dog & pony show will go no where, what is the next OMG birther moment, especially when Obama gets re-elected.

    Within his circles he will get more credibility, however Arpaio has systematically sullied his office. Hopefully, a new sheriff will get elected (appointed) to return respect to that office.

    There was a really good Internet Article about Sheriff Joe by jbjd. It is long, but you find out a lot of stuff about Arpaio.

    You people need to realize that a man that is re-elected by over 70% of the vote clearly is “trusted”…. Get your head out of Obama’s ass…….

    That’s a strong prediction for the President’s reelection.

    Can we subscribe to their newsletter? Is there a theme song? A Twitter feed?

    how long before birthers realize that Sheriff Joe accomplished nothing, is it that he used Trumps investigators (he did)

    I am bit disappointed by this MSNBC clip. The host and the guest had never discussed about Arpaio’s unsubstantiated findings. You can’t just only attack the messenger without debunking the message.

    There are lots of reasons why such a man could be elected, and in the end even 100% of one county does not a country make.

    You mean like Nixon (re-elected with 61% of the vote)?

    Sef: Are morons fungible?

    That’s what I was asking!

    I found a moron tester for 99 at:
    http://freebies4mom.com/2011/04/20/free-android-app-the-moron-test-99-value/

    If it’s worth 99 to determine whether or not something is a moron, then a moron must be worth at least …. ummm … roll 8d8 + 3d6 + 10 … adjust for age and education and familial connections …. apply racial bonus …. add average assets, subtract average liabilites …. like 88 apiece or so.

    Might want to check my math. Accounting for morons is tricky.

    That’s a good question. Anyone know what the going rate for a birther is these days?

    Yeah, but “Your” is a possessive. DO we want to be responsible for them? I say, “No! No! A thousand times, NO!”

    This lack of specifics characterizes the limited news coverage I’ve seen and read.

    However, they correctly point out that this has been debunked already, and in that they are correct. What we saw out of Arizona is the same old stuff right out of the pages of WorldNetDaily.

    Right. When we pwn them they are forever pwned.

    Might want to add a “Catch and Release” policy. Once pwned, you’re on your own.

    “You’re morons” instead of “Your Morons”. Only a moron confuses homophones :-”

    … and the joke has come full circle. 😉

    I fear that when Obama gets re-elected one of them will finally snap and try to kill him.
