And Joe the Plumber—for Some Reason, Ladies And Gentlemen

Basically, to cleanse the palette from the bullshit and brie flavor of the Bully/Brown-nose ticket, I simply intend to remind that, OMFG, this the kind of thing the fucknuts say out loud, anymore.

So you don’t have to click on the above to get to the wanton death-fantasy of Joe the Plumber:

“For years I’ve said, you know, put a damn fence on the border going to Mexico and start shooting. I’m running for Congress and that should be a bad thing to say. But you know what, it’s how I feel…I want my borders protected, I’m very very adamant about that.”

That’s about 28 minutes in.

You know, when Joe the Plumber became the accidental McCampaign 2008 mascot, I wondered what would become of him. I kind of thought that he’d become some kind of reality show star or something, but apparently he got the politics bug, and that’s cool. Regular people shouldn’t be afraid to get involved in politics. Goldie Hawn’s character in Protocol ran for office after becoming a celebrated regular Jane Q Public figure, so why not have a voice like Sam Wurzelbacher’s in the….

Oh fuck it. Just a minute after he stepped down from endorsing wholesale murder of people who want to participate in the American economy, some jackass steps up and talks about Ronald Reagan, who actually had an immigration amnesty during his administration.  Ronald Reagan, who might have been a world-class hippie-punching gay-ignoring Philadelphia, Mississippi campaign-announcing racist dog-whistling example of all the grandstanding bullshit that the modern GOP aspires to, but at least he was too concerned with selling weapons to Middle Eastern terrorists to fund a black ops war in Central America to worry overmuch about killing people who just want to pick the lettuce that makes our affordable Big Macs possible.

This guy makes me pine for Reagan. Screw you and the plunger you rode in on, Sam.

I know “Some wingnut running for congress said X” is just about the laziest of all left-bloggery, but what he said is just so much part of the over the-top, build a fence, dig a moat, stock it with alligators, erect an electrified fence, RFID-chip the illegals, and so forth kind of outlandish stuff that gets said—with a straight face.  Then, when someone like Joe Biden suggests that a runaway Wall Street pillaging pensions and looting retirement savings “shackles” regular Americans, which, no doubt, it would—forcing people into jobs and choices they can’t help but have to make to stay afloat—why, the wingnuts scream bloody murder!

You know what? I’m beginning to think there may just be a rhetorical double-standard. (I am not thinking there is a rhetorical double-standard.)

(I know there is.)

I am so looking forward to seeing Marcy Kaptur plunge that noxious turd down the drain pipe! His 15 minutes were up nearly four years ago, and it’s time to sink into well-deserved oblivion!

I don’t think it’s lazy because this kind of effluvia streams constantly from the RWNJ assholes.  This is merely representative of what they think, and it’s only going to get worse the closer we get to the election. 

Plus, as you astutely pointed out, this kind of shit doesn’t get called out whereas Biden’s chains remark has the Village clutching their collective pearls. 

As for Joe-the-not-Plumber, I, too, look forward to the demise of his not-political-career.

Isn’t it appalling?  The default setting of the right-wingers is violence, yet BOTH SIDES DO IT!!! is the Villagers’ response.

Yeah, get back to me when Elizabeth Warren talks about shooting some bankers.

No kidding.  That guy has surely managed to stretch his 15 minutes out to silly putty extremes.

I’m getting to the point where I think Joe is mentally ill.
