    "Hope they got their money's worth?" What exactly would they find that would get them their money's worth out of investigating Obama's birth certificate? Don't be dumb, the whole birther issue is a joke and anything to do with it on the part of the sheriff is a waste of taxpayer dollars. And even if taxpayers asked him to do this, which I seriously doubt they did in any significant number, a pubic official should have the good sense to know what is a waste of time and money. Just because some taxpayers asked for it, again even if they did, doesn't make it legitimate or any less stupid.

    Look...I have no interest in Obama's birth certificate, so all of your blather about it is of no consequence to me. However, the highlighted statement from you spurred me to search for information about it...and guess what I found?

    "First of all, about 300 people signed petitions," Arpaio said of the investigation into Obama's birth certificate. "I am the chief law enforcement officer, they asked me to look at that situation. I don't dump everything in the wastebasket. So I have my 'Cold Case Posse' which I've had for five years. It's free; it doesn't cost a penny to the taxpayers. Made up of ex-cops and some lawyers, so let them look at it."

    It appears your complaints about the whole thing are uninformed and irrelevant. Furthermore, what you find legitimate, illegitimate, stupid or not stupid has no bearing on what at least 300 of his constituents find worthy of their concern.

    In any event, do you contend that Arpaio's actions in regard to Obama's birth certificate is justification for someone to attempt to blow him up? If not, then why are you even going on about this whole thing?

    I don't condone assassination attempts like this, but I would not have shed a tear had it been successful, either.

    SO all it takes is 300 people asking him to do something, and like a good little puppet, he does what he's told

    In a county the size of his, it's not hard to find 300 sycophants willing to be tools for an egomaniac's posturing.

    Hmmm...

    So what limit would YOU place on a request from his citizens? How many of his constituents need to ask something from him in order for him not to be considered a puppet by you?

    One of the limits would be sanity, a quality he obviously lacks

    sigh...

    Are you having trouble sticking to a point?

    Or...is the point you are trying to get across that you just don't like the guy? If so, you could just say so.

    By the by, I think mr. Arpaio is facing a potential recall challenge.
