Say it ain't so, Joe! You're not a plumber!!

As if we should expect any different from John McCain. He insults women with his choice of vice president. Vacuous, racist and mean Sarah Palin as the supposed all-American (white) woman.

Now he insults working class white guys with the introduction of Joe the plumber -- who is not a plumber, his name's not Joe, he is not buying a business and he's a registered Republican who advocates for a reactionary "flat tax." He was asked to go to the Obama event by the McCain campaign. In other words -- a plant from the McCain camp.

And -- he's not union, either.

Joe -- or Samuel his name is -- is as much of a representative of working class whites as Archie Bunker. And that was the point I guess.
