Feathered Bastard

Joe Arpaio Owned by the Infamous Duke St. Rollins

Sheriff Joe Arpaio's the Rodney Dangerfield of Sand Land politics these days. He just don't get no respect. 

Thing is, in his case, he deserves no respect, whereas Dangerfield's self-pity was a shtick. People actually liked him. They despise Joe. At least those with half a brain or more.

Because of this, Joe has been whining online of late. Case in point, a recent tweet from the MCSO's egomaniacal jefe about the media not covering a recent drug bust, which seems worthy of Joe's attention only because illegal immigrants were involved.

"I see that the arrest of two illegal aliens with 50 pounds of methamphetamine was ignored by most of the media including the large newspaper," Sheriff Twit tweeted on June 27.

Enter the self-described "world-famous troll and nemesis of teabaggers" Duke St. Rollins. St. Rollins is notorious for owning such right-wing dillweeds as Sean Hannity, Ted Nugent, and Mitt Romney, to name a few. 

But the Duke saves his high-explosive ire for Cactus Country's criminal pseudo sheriff. This is what he dished out to Nickel Bag Joe on Arpaio's own Facebook page:
