    The light bulbs went off for this dim dude... guess he finally figured some politicians need for props and how they become just another road side attraction..

    He does not want to create drama:confused::rolleyes::eek:

    McCain can't be trusted, never could, he's in on the "Illegal Alien Invasion" along with Bush, Kennedy and the rest of the democrats, we were being Invaded by 12 million criminals and those dirty bastards just looked the other way and winked.

    (when you break a country's law you are a criminal)

    The plumber had his fifteen minutes of fun he should now go fix a leak somewhere.

    Nobody that has anything at all to do with McCain should trust him, Palin better get the hell away from him.

    Its the Republicans' attraction to this guy that makes me scratch my head when some say Rs and Ds are the same. To this day this guy, who calls himself a business man yet has no clue about even kindergarten-level business management stuff, is still listened to.

    I can see this guy having a voice in the Republican party for like a week or so; but really, not long after he started making use of that voice he should have been figured out and then dismissed as irrelevant. Yet he hasn't been.

    Joe thought if he said it twice that people would pay more attention.

    That's why I said "this subject". Anyway, whatever, the likes of you have made this place unreadable recently so I've been staying away, I just needed to point this out. Joe may be keeping up the rhetoric but this is still old news.

    Oh the selective outrage, how easy it is to pick and choose someone you label unreadable, however you obviously are not paying attention to the big picture.. either that or you view this forum from right rosey glasses.. the politically correct police strike again.

    Read all of the silliness and get back to us, and tell us what is appropriate so we can all meet your lofty standards:rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Not sure anyone noticed your absence.. but that is that self inflated ego, again.

    I don't know how you could have missed it, DarrylS. He's been gone almost 48 hours.

    Well, if that's all that makes you "scratch your head when some say Rs and Ds are the same", then that's OK. But if you look at the important issues, like corporate welfare and bailouts, campaign troughs filled with cash, war, failure to re-regulate the financials, partisan sniping and basic prostitution for special interests, then you need to accept the fact that both parties, in balance, are the same.

    I didn't even mean posting, I am not "leaving", I just have found this board unreadable recently and the asylum dwellers like Darryl post more. The board is at it's lowest common denominator right now and there's few threads that make me want to click on them - and even fewer that were worth it if I do.

    Doesn't Joe have his own reality show yet?

    I think him and sheriff Joe should do Dancing with the Stars together.

    The Joe & Joe dance team.

    In other words the DOD got wind of someone goofing off and reminded that someone that they were not doing their job..

    The fact that this guy even became a 15 minute celebrity is ridiculous. McCain could never effectively articulate why wealth redistribution is bad, so his campaign tried to use this everydayman example to back it up. Turns out the guy got some fame and wanted to leverage it so we still hear about him. What gets me is that this guy needed to become a figure in the 2008 campaign because the media never vetted Obama.

    For the love of god, not that again. I'm home this morning as I'm taking my kid on a field trip. Every job has it's breaks that can't be helped for a variety of reasons, I spend mine here. Deal with it. I, and my co-workers, am extremely productive, now leave that alone you fricking dork.

    Bingo.

    BTW people, while Joe the Plumber is certainly a clown, he sure as heck was right.

    Sure he was - just like he was right about being a certified licensed plumber who was in the process of buying a fair-sized business.
