Can I Make the Opposition Response?

Do all your sheriff's waste their time on this kind of stuff?  Sheriff Joe is cranking on the old PR machine again, this time having an Oval Office fantasy emulating the President's weekly address:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio on Monday announced plans to use a live-streaming video Web site to deliver a weekly address to the media and public.

The Web program "JMA TV-1" will stream Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m. for five to 10 minutes, depending on the subject matter, according to a statement from the Maricopa County Sheriff's Office.

    That is funny. I mean, in this case we have a progressive liberal socialist communistic loving media that is on the side of illegal aliens in every possible way imaginable. Broadcasting every day the position that you support even though the vast majority of United States of America citizens oppose it with informed minds. They vilify everyone who does not support unlimited immigration, path to citizenship, call everyone not on your side of the argument Nazis, racists, KKK members, ignorant hillbillies, extremists, terrorists while working every single day of every single year to ruin the lives of people who want to have an ordered law abiding country, like this sheriff. Somehow, your support of this sort of indoctrination is to be considered a brave opposition response like it is the daring and edgy thing to do, being out front on the issues? I mean, seriously, just nail yourself on a cross and take pictures.

    Well, he is an elected official who very likely has ambitions of higher office. So, he's campaigning, though not officially. Isn't that what politicians do?

    Whatever Sheriff Joe's motivations, I'd say keeping people apprised of what their government is up to is a good thing, and this county-level version is more likely to be relevant to people's daily lives than the ones we get from Washington.

    And yes you can make the opposition response. I would expect no less of you:-)

    Why is this such a bad thing? Nobody's going to watch it, and it's five to ten minutes per week he can't spend plotting civil liberties violations.

    I'd bet the only thing to come out of this is ammunition for his political opponents.

    You know who else is fond of doing this kind of thing? Hugo Chavez. The self-aggrandizement of egomaniacs knows no bounds.

    For some reason my comment was not recorded.

    Warren, unfortunately for you the Sheriff is actually the opposition response, you are doing nothing more than parroting the media and elite's position on this.
