How do we get so lucky to have not one but two Sheriffs that somehow get into the National Media for all the wrong reasons. Yes folks we have Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has news conferences about the “birther issue,” his posse and his racist raids.

Then from Pinal County we have Sheriff Babeu. How can we forget his escapades with his former lover that he threatened with deportation, if he disclosed their relationship. Then last week Sheriff Babeu somehow decides he is going send a Letter to the President and tell him how he is not going to abide by any Orders from the President on gun control.

Stating the President does not have a constitutional right to issue executive orders. Then he caps off his embarrassment by spelling the President’s first name wrong (Barak). It has become quite entertaining here in Arizona to see two sheriffs of two large counties continue to make fools of themselves on the national stage. It is also very sad that our state has to take the brunt of most jokes and embarrassments because we keep electing these entertainers for all the wrong reasons.
