Enough of “Joe The Plumber” and Sarah Palin

"Joe the Plumber" has worn out his welcome.  This man is ignorant, dense, ill informed about everything he expresses an opinion on.  He is proof of the problem that people can have opinions without ever having investigated or done any research on what they are talking about.  When he had his fifteen minutes of fame, questioning Barack Obama in Ohio awhile back, one could see that he had no clue as to what Obama was referring to as he discussed his tax plans.  His eyes showed a sense of total confusion.

"Joe the Plumber" has been exploited by the McCain-Palin campaign.  It is actually embarrassing how the GOP ticket constantly refers to him and has invited him to be part of their campaign.  If McCain were to win, are we to suppose that Joe would be Secretary of State, Treasury or Defense?  :)  Is this the way to win the Presidential campaign, with John McCain counting on TWO ill qualified, uninformed people–Sarah Palin and Sam Wurzelbacher  (Joe’s real name LOL) to appeal to those voters who have no clue on the issues and vote on instinct and emotion, not reason?

Imagine this:  "Joe the Plumber" running for Congress in 2010, as has been rumored, and Sarah Palin running for President of the United States in 2012.  I cannot believe that the American people are going to pursue that course, and it is clear that both of them need to have a reality check.  Were this horrible scenario to occur, it would be proof of the so called "Peter Principle", which is that people rise to the level of their INCOMPETENCY!  LOL  🙂

    Ron, I love your commentary.  Can you recall a time in past election campaigns where a candidate has shown more absolute density?
    You could not make up this stuff.  I can’t wait for the investigative tell-all books that will come out after the election to shed light on where the brilliance for these campaign choices came from.  The whole comcept of picking Sarah Palin and what they hoped to gain with her on the ticket.  And the idiotic holding on to this image of "Joe the Plumber" who isn’t even a plumber.  I’m numb from hearing about it all.  Please God let this election be over with already.  Keep the Faith!  🙂 JOHN

      So I take it that you will not buy Joe the Plumber’s album when it comes out? Someone in an American election has to embody the idea of the American everyman; and unfortunately that false idol this year is Joe the Plumber. As for his congressional run, a man with no ideas (beyond reactionary musings) and zero charisma will not beat a sitting member of congress who won 3/4 of the vote in her last election.

    Both of them are a gift that keeps on giving. President Clinton invoke the old adage just yesterday about birthers” “when the enemy is shooting himself in the foot don’t get in his way.
    Also just look at the field they right has in the coming race. Talk about the dumbing down of America.
