Good Grief! How Did We Miss This From (Not) Joe the (Not) Plumber?
Via Vanity Fair. Watch it and weep. Or wipe the tears of laughter out of your eyes, I’m not sure which.
Yes, pathetic fail of a “network”, RightNetwork, has launched “Whaddya Know Joe?”, a talk show hosted by Samuel Wurzelbacher, the loser never-was who is apparently going to hang stubbornly onto his 15 minutes until the end of time.
RightNetwork’s build up for the launch is hysterical too. I’ll let you read James Wolcott’s take:
RightNetwork’s buildup for Joe is embarrassingly fervid and heavy breathing, as if it were the star of Bethlehem reflected in the gleam of his cueball head that explains his blessed arrival.
“There’s a case to be made for divine intervention when it comes to Wurzelbacher.”
No, there isn’t. God can’t be that bored.
A lesser man might have been cowed when he saw the Democrat controlled media and state government lining up against him. A lesser man might have sought to go quietly back into obscurity. But Joe the Plumber was made of sterner stuff.
Yes, the stuff known as AN INSATIABLE APPETITE FOR ATTENTION, which sustained him in those long dark days in the gulag sharing a cement cell with the bitter remnants of Dennis Miller’s career.
Tell it, James.
