Stand With Arizona
With the Obama Department of Justice reportedly preparing to sue Sheriff Joe Arpaio to enforce "oversight" - essentially taking over his department - the CBS Evening News took a look at the Sheriff and the accusations against him.
As usual, Joe did not disappoint.
Asked if he enjoyed being "disliked", Arpaio said:
"Well I sure don't want to be known as a nice guy. I'm not a social worker, I'm a cop!"Arpaio told CBS News that the Administration is only after him because they don't like him enforcing immigration laws. He also said he would "never resign", and is instead running hard for re-election.
CBS tried their best to smear Arpaio with damaging anecdotes, but it falls flat, as he clearly charmed the reporter, and you just know that most Americans who watched the segment like Joe more than ever.
Perhaps this is why the Administration gets so exasperated by the Sheriff - because no matter how they try and demonize him, Americans continue to support him. Because Arpaio represents the kind of lawman the nation used to have: those who did their job no matter what the cost, and refused to kowtow to politicians.
Unfortunately what we usually see are absolute disgraces like the LAPDs Charlie Beck - who is nothing but a lapdog for L.A. Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, and who recently said he would California's car impound law because it is "unfair" to illegal aliens.
Sheriff Joe does not kowtow to anyone, from his local councilman to the President of the United States. And we salute him for it.

Obama is making the case for Arizona to secede, plain and simple.
The usual result for being right and correct and sticking to it.
Joe and the gov of AZ make me proud.
If AZ, TX and OK ever start to get serious about succession from the union, my family and I plan to immigrate there.
God Bless America. God Bless Sheriff Joe!
Holder “Heady Lamar” is going to send Lilly Von Shtupp to seduce him.
Is that so? I should suggest to my husband that we relocate.

Dear Lord, I love Sheriff Joe! I wish every county sheriff had his cajones.
I heart Sherrif Joe Arpiao! He is the best!
Tenacious 1, COME ON DOWN!
Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the modern-day equivalent of our Judge Roy Bean, “The Law West of the Pecos.”
Love Sheriff Joe! We need about 10,000 more of him across the country!
