Randy Parraz and Friends Try to Get a Trip to Hawaii Out of Joe Arpaio

The best way to respond to a publicity stunt is with another publicity stunt, so the news that taxpayers are funding a Maricopa County Deputy Sheriff's trip to Hawaii for "birther" purposes led activist Randy Parraz and friends to hold a little luau at Arpaio's office in downtown Phoenix today.

The party actually made it up to Arpaio's office on the 19th floor of the Wells Fargo building -- well, the hallway.

The Feathered Bastard will have the whole story.
