Where have you gone, Joe Wurzelbacher,
John McCain turns his lonely eyes to you.
What’s that you say, Mrs. Robinson.
Plumbing Joe has left and gone away,
Hey hey hey.
per NY Times:
DEFIANCE, Ohio — Where was Joe?
Here in Defiance — a town that sums up the mood of Senator John McCain right now – the Republican nominee gave a shoutout this morning to America’s most famous plumber, Joe Wurzelbacher, who was, or so the candidate thought, in the audience.
“Joe’s with us today!’’ Mr. McCain hollered at a cold outdoor rally at Defiance Junior High School. “Joe, where are you? Where is Joe? Is Joe here with us today?’’
Maybe just a scheduling foul-up, but a funny one.
Mr. Sherman, he’s probably missing because he’s been picked up by the State for questioning the One.Exaggerating? Perhaps not. Take a look at what his supporters have done to him so far by abusing their public positions:Ohio official admits Wurzelbacher search went farther than she first stated
Just more evidence of how poorly McCain’s campaign stacks up against Obama’s effort.
this was a funny one…
Yes, quite pigilito, anyone who questions the One will be made to pay. Couldn’t agree more. State officials should persecute anyone who questions the One. In fact, I’m thinking of picking up the phone right now becuase I think you’re insufficiently enthusiastic… checking your ip now

(back away slowly, don’t look away from his eyes) but, uh, you might want to get a paper bag and take a few deep breaths into it.redhand:what bhcanuckistani said.
Seriously, I’m not surprised to see the casual air surrounding the official use of government computers to dig up private dirt on Joe the Plumber, and then leak it to the media so he could be savaged publically for Obama’s sake. But I am surprised the same light attitude wasn’t taken for the discovery and leaking of Obama’s aunt’s illegal immigration status. There, apparently, sacrosanct privilege was violated and must be legally pursued, while Joe’s personal issues are fodder for jokes.Poor Joe needs to renounce citizenship, leave the country, sneak back in illegally, and then apply for redress. He’ll get alot more protection that way.
Joe-Sam the Not-Really-A-Plumber is a consenting adult voluntarily participating in the business of advocating for a candidate. He can take whatever heat he brings upon himself by throwing his ignorant opinions around in the media. Socialism, forsooth. Any socialism you guys are dealing with is in the bank bailout Bush just signed. If that’s the best McCain can do for an endorsement, he ought to concede now and let Palin run for President. Now *that* would be a larf.
