The Saga of Joe the Plumber
The way the American election campaign has been going down the toilet, it seems to me somehow fitting that the anti-hero of the moment should be Joe the Plumber.
Especially since he isn't even a real plumber.
Doesn't make more than $250,000 a year. And hates taxes so much...like John McCain.... he doesn't bother to PAY them.
But that's America eh? Always looking for a star. And Fake Joe is a sensation. The networks are camped out outside his home. His neighbours are selling home made t-shirts with his mug on them. And Conservative bloggers are going ape shit.
Conservative blogger Fausta Wertz declared, "Joe probably has a great deal more knowledge and experience in real-life business and economics than most pundits ... possibly more than Ben [Bernanke, chairman of the U.S. Federal Reserve]."
Like the moron monkeys they are.
And of course, on the internet, he is even BIGGER...
You know I think it all makes sense. Now that the kybo is collapsing. The toilet bowl is overflowing. And that loud flushing sound is the American economy going down the drain.
Who needs a President eh?
When you can have a PLUMBER...
