Lay Down With Dogs

You may remember Paul Babeu, sheriff of Pinal County, Arizona, as one of John McCain’s top supporters. In fact, McCain’s campaign has included Babeu in two of his campaign commercials. He was McCain’s co-star in the somewhat hilarious ‘danged fence’ ad where McCain walks with Babeu along the border getting cranky about illegal immigration.

Now, though Babeu is creeping into militia-ish territory, saying that “our own government has become our enemy” and even appearing on an openly white supremacist radio show.

McCain’s campaign has not responded to requests for comment.
