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.
