Not that I’m saying that the Tea Party may contain an incredibly disturbing psychosexual undercurrent focused on fetishizing powerful women that are still ideologically beholden to them, but fuck it, I am.

Add this to list of bizarre and unusual campaign trail antics: at last week’s Tea Party Express rally in Phoenix, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio welcomed Sarah Palin with a pair of pink underwear.

“I just got done welcoming Sarah Palin to our County. Had a nice chat and gave her a pair of pink underwear,” Arpaio posted onTwitter, along with a photo of him with the former Alaska governor.

Why pink underwear? The hard-line lawman has gained national attention for his controversial methods, such as requiring prisoners to wear all pink, underwear included.
