Given that Sharrrrrron Angle should already have the white male asshole vote locked up, it's curious as to why she'd welcome this bigot to the campaign trail.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio rode back into town Tuesday, this time to fire up voters and to stump for Republican U.S. Senate candidate Sharron Angle in her bid to unseat Democratic Sen. Harry Reid.

But the polarizing sheriff of Maricopa County, Ariz., only briefly mentioned the GOP candidate during his 13-minute speech to a friendly crowd of Angle and Tea Party supporters at Stoney's Rockin' Country bar and dance hall on Las Vegas Boulevard South.

During that brief mention, the septuagenarian sheriff mispronounced Angle's last name, calling her what sounded like "Sharron Anglund."

A few people in the crowd tried to correct him, yelling out, "Angle! Angle!"

Angle has "said some nice things about me," Arpaio said. "It's very nice."

It sure is very nice! And fitting, given that Angle can't tell the difference between Asians and Latinos, given that her allies are trying to keep Latinos from voting, and given that she endorses the Arpaio approach to immigration 100 percent.

And since no Republican can win without the racist vote, Arpaio's help is certainly helpful for Angle in a race in which every vote -- even the racist ones -- will be critical for victory.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
