Most Idiotic Journalistic Mud Slinging Award - AP: Joe the Plumber is Unlicensed

Come on, who cares? Why was this question even raised? It's like a bad joke about journalism. In an attempt to obfuscate the issue - pick on the metaphor. Completely, unbearably idiotic.
AP: 'Joe the Plumber' says he has no plumbing license
Joe the Plumber said Thursday he doesn't have a license and doesn't need one. Joe Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, the nickname Republican John McCain bestowed on him during Wednesday's presidential debate, said he works for a small plumbing company that does residential work. Because he works for someone else, he doesn't need a license, he said.

Wurzelbacher, who voted in the Republican primary and indicated he backed McCain, was cited by the GOP presidential candidate as an example of someone who wants to buy a plumbing business but would be hurt by Democrat Barack Obama's tax plans. Wurzelbacher said he was surprised that his name was mentioned so many other times.


Completely idiotic and unnecessarily article.

Now the MSM decided that digging up dirt on GOP candidate is not enough, now they pick on GOP voters who dare question "The One True Leader". You know what AP? There are millions of people who are going to vote McCain, regardless if he wins or not. Perhaps you ought to take names, make lists, and start picking on every one of them. That should keep you busy for enough time to stop cheer leading for Obama and spread left wing propaganda. (Or anti Israeli propaganda)

Update 10/17 9:30 am
Well, AP wasn't at it alone. It was a 24 hours coordinated smear campaign. Shame on the Media, the Democrats, Obama and Saturday Night Live for having nothing better to do than go after a citizen. The worst is that they went after his livelihood.

Here's a suggestion to "Joe", who nightline bothered telling us that "it's not even his real name" (The audacity of unbelievable nightline bias): Open a blog and put a paypal contribution button. Ask donations to help after the Left Wing Media and Democrats decided to punish you for having an opinion.

  1. The entire "socialist" meme being pushed by the McCain/Palin ticket is a red herring. The reality is that there won't be any broad new social programs, no matter who is elected. The difficulty lies in financing the obligations that our society has already accrued. Our government is over $10 billion in debt (when we include the money to be spent in the bailout), and the interest on that sum is astronomical. This is eroding international confidence in our currency. What "Joe the plumber" really represents is the large contingent of middle class schmucks that wouldn't recognize their enlightened self-interest if it bit them on their collective ass. People like Wurzelbacher, who still believe in realizing the "American Dream" through the "free market system" are drinking the Kool-Aid that is destroying our country.
