It's frightening, but he's right in thinking he could win.

He doesn't need to get in the race, his main objective was being tough on immigration and Brewer took that away from him and now Brewer is leading in the polls.

Arpaio will probably end up getting killed at some point. Then some seriously bad things will happen. Just a random prediction, but it often ends like that.

And you got upset at me for talking about electoral scenarios in the event certain >90 year old senators were to face serious illness?

Probably the tramadol talking, or something. I say a lot of weird things at this hour.

I heard him say something similar in 2007 on a C-Span clip. He said "I could be Governor if I wanted to, I can arrest the Governor right now, I don't need to be Governor to have power".

First, I told azmagic several weeks ago that Joe would not run for Governor.

Second, its really funny to see candidates for public office trying to claim that they are endorsed by Sheriff Joe.  Bitter-Smith is a case in  point.

Third, Arpaio likes being Sheriff, especially being billed as America's toughest Sheriff.

Yes he is. Americans in general love law and order type people. Even in many swing and liberal areas.

Does his job really include forcing inmates to wear pink underwear, to live in a tent city....and blatantly discriminatory methods of policing? Smiley

1. The tent city and pink underwear are brilliant idea. Makes you want to stay out of jail.


2. So far, there hasn't been a single incident of discrimination and all these the lawsuits have gone nowhere. The reason he is so despised by liberals and left leaning indies such as yourself is somewhere he got the notion to rock the boat and you don't like it. Tongue

Looks like Brewer is going to be the nominee. What ever happened to Martin he was leading in all the polls and now he's in third. I know the immigration bill helped Brewer but what happened to him?

Why is he sitting on millions of dollars in campaign cash if he doesn't want higher office??!

Again, can anyone help me with this?  The guy has like a million and a half dollars he's sitting on...for what?  A sheriff's race?

When I saw that kind of money, I presumed he had a strong interest in governor.  I don't know about Arizona, but those types of contributions can typically be difficult to transfer from a state account to a federal one.

Look, he can transfer much of it to contributions to candidates for state legislature.

Remember that Arizona has a bit of a tradition of electing crazies as governor.
