Joe Arpaio and Steven Seagal Star as Complete Asses on the Colbert Report

Please reset the "days without an Arizona-related Comedy Central news segment" counter back to zero.

Thanks to Sheriff Joe Arpaio taking this weekend to exploit dead children by inviting the media and a pseudo-celebrity to a simulated school shooting, Arpaio and Steven Seagal were featured on yesterday's edition of the Colbert Report.

The Colbert segment actually does a good job of combining all the ridiculous aspects of Arpaio's posse-patrol, which isn't hard to do when Arpaio creates publicity stunts with any sort of longevity to them -- like the "birther" investigation.

The Colbert Report segment, starring Arpaio as ass one, and Seagal as ass two, can be seen below:
