It was probably wise of Obama not to give Joe the Plumber a good pasting before the election, but now that it’s in the bag I hope one of his first acts as president is to lock the criminal bastard up for tax evasion. In the meantime, since I don’t ever intend to run for high office I might as well spit some bile at the twat before he fades into obscurity. I might be guilty here of confusing the man himself for what he represents, but in this case I’m not sure the two can or should be separated. Yes, I know that he’s not really Joe the Plumber, since his name’s not Joe and he’s not actually a licensed plumber. So then this means that he’s not only symptomatic of the hypocrisy (and utter bloody suicidal crassness) of the Republican Party on a party political level, but that as an individual he’s a fucking liar. A liar who complains on national TV about his taxes going up under the Democrats, but doesn’t pay the ones set for him by the party he voted for anyway. A self-centred, self-righteous, whining prick with no conscience, social or otherwise. Apparently he’s now bitter about having been used by the Republicans in their promotion of not paying your taxes as the patriotic American way, of greed and ignorance as the great virtues of the common, salt-of-the-earth American. But in that case he shouldn’t have opened his fat, dishonest mouth.
Initially I expected Sarah Palin to be destined for similar obscurity, but some of the more visionary Republicans are hoping for her to stand in 2012. All I can say is: get in there girl! This hockey milf of the people has the potential to become the Republicans’ answer to Ian Duncan Smith. As the great W once said, Bring it on!
