  •  A little OT but I posted this earlier about Joe: (5+ / 0-)

    He dissed a group that works with the blind:

    On Monday, Arpaio issued a press release whining that his invitation to speak at a convention for guide-dog users was withdrawn because the group didn't want the controversy that follows the sheriff wherever he goes. Joe later "tweeted" that the decision to give him the boot "ruined" his 78th birthday last weekend.

    I feel soooo sorry that they ruined his birthday. Not. What happened was the American Council of the Blind received calls from people who said they'd withhold their donations if he spoke. And that money went to scholarships for blind students. Easy call.

    _________

    Also, about 1070, they don't need to wait until the law is enacted to see if there's racial profiling going on. At Grijalva's hearing last week, the group Puente said they're already receiving 5 calls a day from people who were stopped for being brown.
