Joe the Plumber’s Open Letter

His 15 minutes are over, but he apparently does not realize it.  He’s written an open letter to the parents of the victims of the mass shooting in California.  I do not think that he has done himself any favors.

It starts…

I’m not talking here about the three tragic murders Rodger committed by stabbing before his driving and shooting spree; I speak now only to the families of the gunshot victims in Santa Barbara:

It’s a tragedy.

I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But:

As harsh as this sounds – your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights

Yup, he went there.…

Joe’s open letter goes on to note that, “[t]he mainstream media have stopped the practice of immediately reporting the psycho maniac is a conservative Tea Party Republican Christian.”

He surmises that the answer is that the media are, “… sick of having to hide being wrong every time when it comes out the whacko votes Democrat.”

And he equates “sad and insane individual[s] with “Obama Voter[s].”


Hey, Joe, tell ya what…. stick that plunger in your mouth, rubber end first.

    That about half an hour after the end of Obama’s second term the whole country is going to realise that by accident or design he head-faked the entirety of the Republican Party and their fellow travellers into a terminal political dive.

    It has been a very good week for the nation to recall how lucky it was not to have elected John McCain president of the United States in 2008. This is not because McCain ran a bad campaign in a tough year, though he did. This is not even because the party to which John McCain belongs already was showing signs of the prion disease that now has eaten through the higher functions of its collective brain, though it has. This is because, in his desperate (and vain) attempt to reconcile with a demented political party energized solely through a conservative movement long removed to Bedlam, John McCain unleashed into the public discourse a remarkable collection of dimwits and mountebanks who plague us even unto this day, while McCain is off spooning with his new pals Senator Kelly (The Metternich Of Manchester) Ayotte and Senator Huckleberry J. Butchmeup at the soda fountain of the Blow Up The Brown People Cafe.


    And here’s Sam Wurzelbacher, whom McCain designated as the Voice Of The Workin’ Man, snaking his brain-drain on the purpose of firearms in a functioning democracy.

    Today, Wurzelbacher lectured the rest of America about guns, which he claimed “are mostly for hunting down politicians who would actively seek to take your freedoms and liberty away from you, Google ‘Hitler, Mao, Kim Jung Il, Castro, Stalin’ just for starters.”

    May we introduce you, Sam, to 18 U.S. Code 115:

    Will these dangerous nitwits ever go away? It’s difficult for me to understand why they still have a public voice.
