The Perfect McCain Spokesperson

Turns out Joe The Plumber is not a licensed plumber, has an outstanding tax lien and wants to privatize social security. Where does this guy get the idea that he could buy a business with more than $250,000 per year income? Even at 5X income (low) he’d have to be worth more than $1.5 million. You’d think a guy like that could pay his taxes.

    Awww poor guy, let him take his money and… well you get my meaning.

    The fact that this guy has a tax lien against him will only make him a hero of mythical proportions to the base.

    He’s fighting the government! Government isn’t always the problem! There is no problem that cannot be solved by a tax cut!

    I mean, government isn’t always the solution. The base’s backhanded way of saying that they hate all government that doesn’t throw bailouts and contracts their way.

    Don’t miss this report on the ways that “Joe Plumber” is not on the up-and-up:

    • Wants to buy a firm worth $250K – not with $250K revenues
    • Not a licensed plumber
    • Longtime Republican, first registered with the right-wing Natural Law Party
    “• He also told Obama that he’d been a plumber for 15 years. He’s 34. He also says he has served in the military. So unless he was a military plumber, something doesn’t add up.”

    McCain’s campaign is looking more and more like a Fox reality series;, a mix of Who Wants to be a Millionaire and Are you Smarter than a Fifth Grader. Sad-
