Birther Sheriff Endorses Birther Frontrunner

Misery loves company and Joe Arpaio is one miserable son of a bitch.

Infamous sheriff and leader of the birther posse Joe Arpaio has made the trek to Iowa where he will join GOP presidential frontrunner and fellow birther Donald Trump on the campaign trail.

Arpaio praised Trump as a "leader" who "produces results and is ready to get tough in order to protect American jobs and families."

"I have fought on the front lines to prevent illegal immigration and I know Donald Trump will stand with me, and countless Americans, to secure our border. I am proud to support him as the best candidate for President of the United States of America," he added.

Arpaio's reputation speaks for itself. He's been the target of a federal civil rights investigation and he's just this side of Orly Taitz in the birther hierarchy.

In 2008 John McCain won 31 percent of the Latino vote, down from the 44 percent who voted for George W. Bush. Mitt Romney lowered the bar once again with 27 percent support.

I don't want to engage in thinking that is a bit too wishful, but I can see Donald Trump walking away with 10 percent or less of the Latino vote in November.

Needless to say that would be a disaster for the GOP.

    Wait. Donald Trump is a what, now?

    Apart from a bunch of washed-up former D-list celebrities, who or what has he led? And apart from multiple bankruptcies, what results has he produced?

    Joe Arpaio sees in Trump a reflection of himself: a loudmouthed boor with delusions of adequacy and a seething resentment that one of those people would dare to sully his White House. No wonder he’s endorsing The Donald.

    The short-fingered vulgarian and Joe Arpayaso are two drunks at the end of the bar, loudly boring the room with tales of how much better everything was before the melanin-enhanced started getting uppity.

    A disaster at the polls for the GOP would be an irrefutable Godsend for the country. The needs of of the USA are now diametrically opposed to those of the Republican party.
