(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.
You go girl! Palin 2012
Uh... yeah... that's not creepy at all.
Those pink underwear will go great with her white hood! She plays on people's fears and those same people think she cares about them. She is laughing all the way to the bank.
Craig: "gifted" is not a word. I think the word you're looking for is "gave."
In the picture accompanying this story, Arpaio's pistol tie pin is pointing right at Sarah Palin!!!
Shouldn't this know nothing nobody from nowhere be in a kitchen somewhere making sanwiches and serving coffee? While some people suffer from A.D.D. (attention deficit disorder) Sarah "queen of the brain-dead lemmings" Palin is obviously afflicted with a bad case of A.S.S (attention seeker syndrome)! Now things have gotten so bad that even her underpants make the news................Does anyone know who I talk to about applying for Canadian citizenship? This country is infested with idiots!!!!!
Wow. It's good to see that Palin isn't the only one in the GOP who is setting back women's rights. Also, aren't those panties paid for by taxpayer dollars? Isn't that misuse of taxpayer funds? Some fiscal conservative this guy is.
Classic Palin: Buddies with one of the most corrupt, power mad swine in the country. She doesn't have the sense to know that this pinnacle of feculence deserves to spend the rest of his life wearing his pink underwear and eating his rotting food in his own jail.
That's cool, and also symbolic for the great job Sheriff Joe is doing. We need many more like him - and Sarah!!
Who is paying for this gift? It better not be the tax-payers of the county!
OMG! Come on Sarah! Boycott Arizona! Surely Arpaio is making a sexually suggestive gesture! Beware he may be a crazed fan stalking you! He could have given you a shirt or pants, even socks, but underwear? Come on, get up in arms!
Disgusting and inappropriate!
When Dumb meets Dumber
Really....come on Cnn is this really news
Why am I not surprised! Why do any men support the bore of babble-on? Is it because of her smarts, or skirts? I wonder.
Will that dainty little gift get in the way of her pulling all of her "facts" out of her you-know-what?
Aren't those people serious about anything?
I do not care about Palin , her underwear or the Fascist Joe.
For the love of God, Why is this news ???
That's just plain weird. Why does the sheriff think Sara Palin should have a pair of the pink underwear he expects his inmates to wear?Is that a hint? Sounds like he thinks as much of her as his inmates or else he is just sicko. Did she accept the gift? LOL:)
Underwear only covers two holes...need duct tape for the other.
i feel sorry for you people
Sarah looks pretty in anything. When Sarah is President she will enforce the border and make good use of pink clothing as she puts illegal aliens in jail, or deports them dressed in pink. Ken Krieger Cape Coral, Florida
Wonder if he wants her to model them. What a jerk. He certainly thinks he is a big shot. But he is the worst kind of crook.
I'd love to hear and actual explanation as to what he ment by that. Especually the, "I just got done welcoming Sarah Palin to our County." part of that.
Seriously CNN? This is news...uh...why? Let's see: Our nation is drowning in debt; Congress is passing bills w/out knowing what's in them; Congress reps are taking money from foreign sources (both parties that you); Our president "might" have been born in another nation; Our election system in heavily democratic precincts is badly flawed where excessive voting per person occurs with regularity....I could go on and on, and this is what CNN puts on their ticker? And CNN wonders why they are no longer "The world's source for news." I hope CNN and their journalists can find a story that actually helps hold our elected representatives to account...not stories where CNN has an obsession with Sarah Palin...did good old George Soros give you money also?
