PHOENIX - They come from two different worlds, but Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and rocker Ted Nugent do see eye to eye on the issue of illegal immigration.
That was a topic of discussion at a sit down dinner between the two Monday night.
The two see eye to eye on pretty much everything -- just two friends from two very different backgrounds, having dinner, and they let us crash the party.
Nugent is still known for his guitar playing, but these days his conservative politics are becoming just as well known. He's even a special deputy in the sheriff's office.
"He's a captain. If he does good we'll make him a colonel," chuckles Arpaio.
Nugent was sworn in last year and since then the two have stayed in touch. Nugent was invited to dinner at Bobby Q's near Dunlap and I-17 in Phoenix, and he asked the sheriff to come along.
So what does Nugent like so much about Sheriff Joe?
"How about truth and logic and the American way and doing the right thing whether it's politically correct or not. Getting the job done protecting the citizens and enforcing the law… what I just mentioned is all the right things and all the obvious common sense thing to do. And he is my common sense guy," he says.
Nugent has become well known for his support of gun rights and his distaste for some prominent Democrats. He's also heavily involved in the DARE program.
"He has done a lot of great things for this country and I don't think he gets as much credit as he should from the general population," says Sheriff Arpaio.
We asked Nugent what he thinks about all those protesters who constantly criticize the sheriff.
"If you are not really angering idiots you might be an idiot. The fact that he makes idiots angry makes him my buddy."
As for how Arpaio feels about Nugent, he said, "Hey he is politically correct -- that is what I love about Ted."
