Sweet Gig

Not to be outdone by the Arizona secretary of state’s recent flirtation with birtherism, Sheriff Joe Arpaio escalated his probe into President Obama’s birth certificate this week by dispatching a deputy from his “threats unit” to Hawaii.


The Star-Advertiser reported that Zullo and Mackiewcz flashed badges on Monday when they showed up at the Hawaii Department of Health. Mackiewcz apparently also handed over a business card showing he is part of the Arizona sheriff’s “Threats Management Unit.”
Lots of crime and threats in resorts in Mexico too. Any threats in Bangkok?

I understand that there are some nearby coral reefs in which "triggerfish" are known to hang out.

Most things trigger fish. Freezers in particular.

A little bit outside their jurisdiction, I think. They would have been better off showing some ID that carried more weight, like their Kiss Army membership cards.

Extra amusing is that Arpaio's volunteer "Cold Case Posse" is looking into this.

I imagine them all riding something like this.

If there is anything resembling cosmic justice, Deputy Brian Mackiewcz will get an opportunity to take a senior position in the, say, a Chicago or Pittsburgh law enforcement agency, and in the course of the interview he will cite his 'work' with the Maricopa County Sheriff's Department "Threat Management Unit", particularly his courageous descent into birtherism conspiracies with the apparent intent of keeping the incumbent President of the United States off of the General Election Ballot in Arizona. One would expect that the derisive laughter would signal a rather abrupt end to the interview process.

Way to uphold the Constitution, there, buddy...

It's a corrupt state that hasn't fired Arpaio yet. The man is a sociopath and should be fired for this stunt alone.

Bangkok, oriental setting
And teh city don't know that teh city is getting
Maricopa deputies on a mission to prove
That Obama's as American as Yul Brenner.

I can feel Obama walking next to me...

One night in Bangkok and teh prez's a Thailander,
His certificate's a forgery.
He was born in Indo-Chin-er,
Probs to a Siamese Red Commie,

One night with Orly and your brain goes fuzzy,
Not much between Kenya and Ha-wai-i
Next thing you know, then Barry O's a muzzy.
And you're the chairman of the G.O.P.

I think I'm developing a taste for tea.
