Arizona Republic headlines prove newspaper’s a joke

Headline: Poll suggests many voters dislike Arpaio

A poll can “suggest” the moon is made of bleu cheese. The fact remains Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio maintains immense levels of popularity, as evidenced by his definitive Aug. 30 victory over his primary opponent, Dan Saban.  Joe Arpaio hammered Saban 65.40% to 26.88%. In raw numbers, Republican Arpaio carried 226, 640 votes to party-switching Saban’s 93,136. Two lesser candidates shared 7+% between them. In the General Election, problem-plagued Democrat Paul Penzone is back for anther insignificant nibble at the sheriff’s ankles. But Penzone’s unopposed primary exposed him as falling far short of the mark as Arpaio outpaced him by nearly 50,000 votes, despite three challengers.

Headline: Flake: “I’ll speak out until Trump changes tone.”

Arizona’s arrogant amnesty-bent junior senator Jeff Flake has been busying himself making the rounds of Sunday morning interview shows denouncing Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. Flake‘s making a pathetic spectacle of himself and engendering massive pushback from his fellow Republicans, who are embarrassed by his showboating obstinacy. After reneging on his own pledge to term limit himself while in the U.S. House, smirking as he blatantly admitted, “I lied,” he ran for the Senate and won by a mere 3 percentage points —- even with Sens. McCain and Kyl going the max to shoehorn him into Kyl’s seat. If the aptly named Flake thinks Trump will transform his campaign to conform to his whims, Flake must be smoking something that’s still illegal in Arizona.  Flake appears to have forgotten that Donald Trump won the GOP nomination over 16 other candidates.

These selections are just two of a multitude of such farcical headlines, which provide clear evidence of the radically leftward stance of the Arizona Republic, attempting to be calculatingly deceptive, though missing the mark by a mile — and insulting its ever dwindling readership in the process.

    The Arizona Republic has been an agenda driven farce for years. I recall when it was a conservative leaning newspaper that held to journalistic standards of reporting, and had an actual op-ed section. Now it’s nothing more than a johnny one note for the left and johnny mccain and his cronies. (left uncapitalized on purpose!)

    The AZ Repulsive is nothing more than a colossal waste of money. Snowbirds and local seniors buy it. The rest of us get our news from more reliable sources.

    Flake got stuck in the toddler stage of childhood development.
    Like a two year old who will stomp his feet, roll out his lower lip in a pout and throw a hissy fit.

    Perhaps he’ll opt for the other trick that two year olds try—-
    holding his breath. Hopefully, for a really, really long time.

    He needs a permanent tattoo across his forehead which reads ‘here comes trouble’.

      Obstinate, stubborn, bratty little 2 year old’s need their butts warmed up a bit, & stood in th’ corner.

      As to the SRAZ comment that he may be smokin’ sumthin’ that’s still illegal in AZ…..maybe he’s got his “card”….& that’s th’ same story in D.C., ain’t it? So he’s good to TOKE in both places which, would explain an AWFUL Lot…wouldn’t it?

      ….his parents must be so proud of their little lyin’ basturd child, all grown up…

        His sons have followed Poppa’s example…one with vicious, bigoted internet posts while bragging that his father was a senator, and the other responsible for the deaths of a couple of dozen dogs in his care at a relative’s kennel. The relatives (now former in-laws) are serving jail time through they were out of town when the heat related deaths occurred. Sonny Flake and his then wife, are suing the taxpayers of Maricopa County for millions due to the fact that their snowy white reputations were soiled by the negative publicity generated by the sheriff’s investigation. What a sterling family those Flakes are.
