Lunch With Joe? More Like 'Arpaio Media Makeover'

Posted By on Wed, Feb 16, 2011 at 9:52 AM

The Fox station (Channel 10) in Phoenix aired a little story about taking Sheriff Joe out to lunch at an authentic Mexican restaurant.

Taking Joe to lunch could be a real hoot, not just because its fun watching him pop chips and salsa into his mouth, but also because the piece may make it seem like he isn't so bad. In fact, he seems so normal that he could be our next U.S. senator.

Imagine that.

If this Fox affiliate continues these kinds of features, why not give it a special title like Political Ass Makeover? Just a thought.

Here's the description from the Fox website:

Friday, FOX 10's John Hook and the sheriff sat down to lunch. Hook was told the sheriff hadn't eaten Mexican food in years because he was afraid someone would spit in it—but that's just where they went.

Hook and Arpaio met at Juan's Authentic Mexican at 16th St and Thomas. The family that runs it doesn't support Sheriff Arpaio's controversial stance on illegal immigration, but they allowed them to dine there anyway.

They told FOX 10, "We want to set an example for the sheriff: that we open our doors and welcome everyone."

During their conversation, they talked plans for higher office, his policies, and the polarity of his supporters and opponents.
