Anyone wanna start a pool?

Giddy from this week's passage of the anti-immigrant police state bill and today's passage of the birther bill, one of the loons in the lege - perhaps "old guard" loons such as Pearce, Gould, or Harper, or perhaps new guard hatchlings like Antenori, Seel, or Montenegro - will have the bright idea of swearing out a complaint against President Obama under the new anti-immigrant law.

God knows Arpaio would trip over himself trying to get to the airport to serve such a complaint the next time the President visits Arizona. Of course, he wouldn't be worried about tripping, as long as there were TV cameras around.

The pool could be people predicting the time that elapses from the moment the bills become law until a complaint is filed, and who will be out in front of it.

Whaddya think?


Note - To all nativist-friendly law enforcement officers/officials/agencies: The above is a metaphor only, used to make a political point. No actual wagering will take place as a result of the above proposal.

I would be happy to bet (if I were a betting man which I am not) that Joe Arpaio is smart enough to know that there are some people who he had best not arrest, irritate or sue unless he has witnesses and pictures. Governors, foreign diplomats, officials and employees of the federal government and the president of the united States fall in to that category.

Those people with power can get away with quite a bit but as Frederick Douglass is reputed to have said:

“The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.”

Joe Arpaio is smart enough know better, but he is arrogant enough and camera-hungry enough to not care.
