Who's giving Palin underwear?

(CNN) - A last-minute trip to Arizona for former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ended with an unlikely gift from controversial Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

According to Arpaio's Twitter account, the tough on crime, anti-illegal immigration lightning rod gifted Palin a pair of pink underwear similar to those that inmates at his notorious Phoenix jail are supposedly required to wear.

"I just got done welcoming Sarah Palin to our County. Had a nice chat and gave her a pair of pink underwear," Arpaio tweeted Friday.

Palin arrived in Phoenix on Friday after kicking off a 15-day Tea Party Express tour on Monday to rally Tea Partiers in a final push before the midterm elections. It wraps up in New Hampshire on November 1.

CNN calls to the Arapio and Palin camps went unreturned Saturday.

    He must be one of those old white men in love with her. It's a sad day in America when you vote for someone because of their looks.

    Is that something to be proud of. Good grief he's supposed to be a Sheriff not a buffoon.

    I think she deserves something like that underwear to keep her unguarded traps shut sometime. That bitch has polarized Americans more than any politician in recorded history of modern US. some time I wonder if she is indeed a Christian or using that as a front to gain political advantage. Her level of racism is unprecedented, K.K K.Cheer leader,SARAH OF ALASKA President of dumb Americans.

    Ride on mama P Bull, It is only in the US that your Presidency is concievable

    Joe forget the underwear. It's a brain and a dose of integrity she really needs.

    A nit-wit political prostitute and a bigoted southern sheriff who thinks he is the only law he must obey. There's the Tea Party nuts in a nutshell.

    I feel sorry for Palin's underwear. They're in the worst place on earth.

    I don't care whose underwear she's wearing. All I care about is not hearing her screeching voice again.

    He probably just wants to get into her pants.

    Is that really appropriate? Is this sheriff suggesting that Palin should be in jail? I don't think she should, but at least she shouldn't be a leader in the country. She fails to show leadership and inspiration for creating and developing people of intellect.

    Those two deserve each other – they are both scary!

    Know what? I don't care who's giving her underwear, or anything else. I'm so sick of hearing about this nobody, know-nothing, nitwit bimbo! We would've forgotten her name by now, except the media keeps inflating her and bringing her back from the land of obscurity where she belongs. KNOCK IT OFF! How about some news for a change???

    So, she's got very strange men supplying her with drawers now. hmmm....

    What would it take for her to go home and take care of her kids instead of uising them as props?

    And still it continues, this pathetic coverage by CNN for an average US citizen who holds no political office nor is seeking one at this time. Where is the coverage of those who are running for re-election? This dumb nut does not deserve the attention you all give her.....you certainly could never be compared to newcasters the likes of Walter Cronkite and company, you aren't fit to wipe any of their boots.

    Well Pailin should put on the panties and parade for the Sheriff the way a good tea-party woman should do.

    Amazingly enough the Republicans have gotten even more creepy. Who would have thought they could keep topping themselves.

    How inappropriate! It's a good thing it wasn't a Democrat, or the Republicans would be foaming at the mouth.

    'Disgusting' and 'stupid' are the first words that come to mind on this one. Too bad he doesn't have any more class than that, and too bad she doesn't command any more respect than that.

    Ok so we know where she gets her under ware, but who is paying her bills and how much does she
    get to keep. Seems we have a in name leader of the country that never eve finished one term in the
    senate and a former governor as spokes person that never finished her term. The nation is apparently
    bankrupt of leadership.
