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.

Not our Not Joe! He fought obscurity every step of the way and he’s still a 2-bit nobody.

And the answer to the show’s question: Nothing.

Whaddya Know Joe?

Hmm… Do you think Michael Feldman has cause for a lawsuit?

You know, I’m a pretty proud O-bot but damn Obama for letting this dufus ask a question and double-damn him for deigning to give a long-winded thoughtful answer.

An ordinary man might have realized what a sham his whole life had been, and how much humiliation he would bring upon himself and his family by selling out to political handlers who knew they could exploit him equally well as a spokeman or a martyr, and didn’t care which. An ordinary man might have understood that the odds of an inarticulate unlicensed plumber becoming the next Jeff Foxworthy were a million to one. But Joe the Plumber was no ordinary man.

Wow. And that was just the SpellCheck changes.

And yet, this asshat is still considered news.  Bah.

Wolcott really does set the standard for snark.  Go James!

Anyone else get the impression that these wingnut sites are reaching critical mass? There’s so many of them and not enough…um…“talent” to go around. Honestly, tell me Not-Joe isn’t the bottom of the barrel.

Contra John Cole, it seems that Peak Wingnut is real after all.

That’s what happens when you pay hacks by the outrage.

Yanno, I had wondered what happened to Joedaplumma. And here I thought he fell into a hole.
