Joe Arpaio Featured in Videos From Hospital Bed, Does Himself No Favors

We're not doctors. That said, it appears like "step two" in the treatment for Sheriff Joe Arpaio's condition may involve embalming fluid.

We say this because Arpaio's press squad uploaded yesterday a pair of videos of the sheriff in his hospital bed, and we're really struggling to find a reason why.

Sure, a couple of painkillers might explain away what's going on in these videos, but watching Arpaio talk brought a few Hollywood classics to mind, like Ray Liotta's character at dinner in Hannibal or Jigsaw on his deathbed in Saw III.
