    PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Justice Department says an appeals court overstepped its bounds when it ordered the appointment of a special prosecutor to pursue an appeal involving a pardon of retired Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

    Can you guess which person said the following quote this week? "If they're afraid to go to church, that's good." If you guessed "Osama Bin Laden," you'd be wrong. But your answer would be understandable, as they certainly sound like the words of a terrorist. No, the man who said this is actually somewhat of a hero on the right. Conservatives fancy him as a sort of cowboy sheriff, fearlessly rounding up lawbreakers and treating them as prisoners should be treated: no cable, pink underwear, and oh yeah...the chance that they'll die needlessly from lack of the appropriate health care...
