Something Someone Else Said

“I asked him some pretty direct questions...Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact, I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.” -Joe the Plumber, on his talks with then presidential candidate John McCain

Yet he never had the intellectual honesty to just come out and say what he thought of both candidates; later in this story, he's asked why he didn't just leave McCain's campaign if he felt this way and his answer was that Barack Obama's answers appalled him more. So now we've established that Joe the Plumber (Jesus, I feel dumber just referring to him in this manner) was not some straight-talking, no-nonsense, blue-collar hero but rather merely a partisan hack who happily traded whatever integrity and dignity he might have once possessed for his fifteen minutes in the national spotlight. And he'll get his book deal or recording contract or whatever other cash-in opportunity he can wrangle out of this whole charade, only now we'll know the truth about this dishonest douchebag and his motives.

Hey man, he's just a plumber. I don't knock him for bilking this thing for cash. His opinions on the record wouldn't have swayed the whole election like they might make him a few grand.
