Here's your Joe-the-plumber

I have to laugh at those commercials, all full of nice looking white folks that are certainly higher on the economic ladder than I am (can you afford a plumber? I can't).

This guy is so busy protesting, he hasn't had time to register for community college.

how the hate increases, how the fringe grows...

So whomever wins, does it make it better for the rest of us? The fear and anger generated by the media and the republicans only encourages this kind of nonsense.

I don't have any poems about intolerance. I may have to figure out how to put these feelings in a one.

Not-Joe the not-plumber (his name is Sam and he did not complete his apprentiship, much less get his plumbing license), was nowhere near purchasing the $500K-per-year company...

... and now he's weighing a run for state senate? Come on!

Freakin' insane. Joe the Plumber, Joe Six Pack and Sarah Palin are all footnotes of a horribly run campaign.

I'll be dancing in the street 24 hours from now.
