Joe the Plumber FAIL

31 Oct

Evidently, Joe the Plumber – who was soooooo angry at the media for finding out what he does, the fact that he’d benefit from Obama’s tax plan, and that he doesn’t pay taxes himself – now has an agent and is looking to get a country music deal.

Wonkette also brought this up, which is dead-on:

As for this clusterf*ck yesterday, one wonders whether McCain’s campaign could have one day done right.

    Hey at least McCain didn’t ask a paraplegic in a wheel chair, Missouri State Senator Chuck Graham, to standup and take a bow. “Get up Chuck” – what a tool, no wonder the Obama campaign has Biden locked in a closet through election day.

    By coincidence, this comment pertains to two of your consecutive items, so I am posting the same to both.

    Ordinary citizens will not run for office because modern political campaigns are a cesspool of excrement of which no decent, thoughtful person would wish to partake.

    An ordinary citizen expresses disapproval of the economic policies of a particular candidate, and Ohio hack political appointees such as Helen Jones-Kelly (Director of the Office of Jobs and Family Services) decide to access confidential databases via their government computer system to see if this citizen owes child support, is delinquent in payroll taxes, has any liens, etc. Ms. Jones-Kelly, for one, says there is no connection between her professional curiosity and the fact that she has made the maximum permitted contribution to the Obama campaign this year.

    It takes the media about ten minutes to pile on, grinning and winking, but they’re six minutes behind the Daily Kos, which has just wound up its six-week investigation into rumors of incest in the Palin family.

    People who have represented clients in a professional capacity as attorneys are accused of mocking and belittling their clients’ “victims”, when all they have done is given their clients the zealous representation which the Canons of Ethics demand.

    Never mind the financial and time costs of running a campaign for office at any level—who but he most craven would enter upon such a vile endeavor, and subject their children to a single word of it?

    Yep, it was horrible and distasteful for meand others to comment on and question these things about Jonny but it’s totally proper for them to do that to Joe the Plumber. Jonny was running for public office and he made his record a subject of public discourse. Joe the Plumber was a private citizen and did no such thing.

    What Ward said. If Obama had any class or shred of decency, he would profusely apologize for the treatment of Joe the Plumber.

    Pardon me, but which candidate put Joe the Plumber front and center during the 3rd debate and continues to invoke his name at every rally? Which candidate made this idiot the centerpiece of his national campaign? Joe the Plumber should not be apologized to…he should be ignored after being revealed for the lying sack of weasel shit he is, now scrambling to get his American Idol-esque 15 minutes of fame.

    Christ…you probably think Obama should apologize to Sarah Palin for her being such a no-nothing buffoon.

    “know-nothing buffoon”

    First Sarah Palin goes rogue, now Joe the Plumber?

    Johnny Boy, everyone’s abandoning you!

    @QuakerTownNY : Biden is truly an ass. It takes a cosmopolitan wit like Sarah Palin to go to a solar energy facility and try striking up her Drill Baby Drill ! cheer. Is Palin going to drill on the sun at night so she doesn’t get burned ? Has she read some newspapers and magazines yet whose names she can recall, journalism major that she is ? And has she exonerated herself of all charges that she’s an incompetent boob unfit for the job in the same way she cleared herself of the Abuse of Power charge her fellow Republicans found her culpable of in Alaska ? Biden is truly an ass. Sarah Palin is the shizzle.

    Exactly how has the plumber guy been mistreated? Perhaps he should apologize to Obama for missleading him about how much money he made when he asked the question about taxes.
