    Amazing who the GOP has hitched their wagons to, Palin, Limbaugh, Mr. Rogers and Joe The Plumber.. the last one wrote a book and no one came to the signings.. guess he has had his 15 minutes of face time.. fade to black.

    Don't know what to say except I hope this is the last we hear of Joe until he hits the airwaves after tax evasion . He'll have to get a real job now cause i don't see the book being a big seller.
    So Joe don't let the door hit you in the azz on the way out.

    Well at least he won't be punished with higher taxes for making more than $250k. Maybe that extra $13 bucks in his pay check will help him get by;)

    It's so funny. Dare to ask the Messiah why he wants to "redistribute our wealth" and get repeatedly investigated and lambasted by the liberal MSM. Bomb the Pentagon or be Obama's Secretary of the Treasury and not pay your taxes and the MSM can't be bothered. What a messed up country. :rolleyes:

    Next time the Repubs are in the White House, they can save money by having a senior foreign policy advisor who also happens to be a licensed plumber.

    Or unlicensed, as the case may be.

    "The MSM" indeed. What's that, Microsoft something...? I forget. Anyway, what made Sam the Not-Plumber is the fact that the Republican party decided it needed a folk hero, no matter how ridiculous, and Sam decided to ride that wave. Well, presidential campaigns get covered by the press. That's just the way it is. There's some lady named Zeituni who gets covered incessantly from the looks of this board, by the same principal of association.

    So, it turns out he's not a plumber and his name's not Joe. That's not anybody's fault, it's just true. Add to that that he made speeches talking about how the good people of America think any change to ruinous GOP policies is socialist. Gee, if he had a local customer base, how many do you think he's sent packing by drawing a point to the fact he's not licensed, plinking about 1/2 the electorate on political grounds, oh yeah, and then going on a rampage of silly actions like hiring a publicist and attempting to recast himself as a Mideast correspondent... despite the fact that he has no background in journalism or in the region?

    Only in America could a faux plumber become a national folk hero for asking a question on camera... but just about anywhere you can find such an individual sliding back into obscurity.

    Nothing special about the guy. He's a little guy that wanted a big spotlight and got it. Now, as a failed plumber, correspondent, and writer, he can buckle down and get serious about finding a... oh that's right, there aren't any.

    I'm sure he won't collect any "socialist" government aid of any kind. To be ideologically pure, he'd better steer clear of any company that receives any government aid over the next few years.

    Joe, we hardly knew ye.

    I feel bad for Joe but not Sarah. Joe's just a regular guy who is pissed off because he was born a little dim-witted through no fault of his own. Good plumbers are smart guys usually, and he isn't a good one. Honestly, it isn't his fault he fell for the crowds and camera lights. He has a very narrow view of the world...one which he has prolly only formed since asking Obama the ill-fated question.

    I blame the roller coaster ride he's been on on McCain and Palin. They totally used and abused this guy (even though he could have and should have jumped off at the beginning). It looks like Palin will be relegated to the Jeopardy scrap heap and McCain is being drug out to the woodshed by Obama. Payback's a bicht, but I don't think Joe's being paid back for anything. He's a bit better off than he was before "the question", I bet. Hopefully he'll buy some classes at the JuCo and try his hand at something other than writing.... maybe brush up on the plumbing skills for when the economy rebounds in three years.

    There's guys a lot more knuckle-headed than him in construction. If he makes a few bucks?... whatever.

    Book signings and sales are weird. Mick Foley, the guy in the WWF who pulled a dirty sweat sock out of his crotch, put it on his hand and stuffed said hand down his opponent's throat to win his matches is a two-time NYT best selling author. He kicked the asses of both Depak Chopra and the guy who wrote 'Tuesdays with Morrie' in book sales.

    He should brush up on his plumber skills now. Just because the countries in a downturn doesn't mean that peoples toilets don't get clogged up, or plumbing has to come up to code etc. Its a good job that will be in demand even in the worst of times.

    Palin:
    The hate wasn't caused by anything she said or did, the hate wasn't caused because she likes snow
    (she lives in Alaska EVEN THE DINGOBATS UP THERE LIKE SNOW) the hate wasn't caused by her unmarried daughter being knocked up (liberal democrats usually love those kind of women) the hate wasn't caused because she said she could see Russia from her bathroom window, THE HATE WAS CAUSED BECAUSE EVERYWHERE SHE WENT SHE GOT STANDING OVATIONS, THE HATE WAS CAUSED BECAUSE SHE IS A BIG THREAT TO THE DINGOBATS, SARAH PALIN MAKES WINDBAG BIDEN LOOK LIKE "DAFFY DUCK"

    That's his actual, real, on his birth certificate, name. He hate's bein' called Mike or Michael. Don't get me wrong, I own a hard cover copy of both of his books. They're captivating stories, btw. My point was that you just can't predict what'll sell in book stores nowadays.

    I'd politically grudge-**** her I guess. I would bring her to the brink of ecstasy and make her renounce her political ideology before going past that. Then after she'd commenced an insane roller-coaster ride I'd periodically slow down and do the same thing saying "Who's your party who's your party who's your party," and she'd know she'd get nothing unless she screamed DEMOCRAT!!!

    Okay I gotta take a shower now

    There was no hate Harry, once again reading all those RW blogs will make you believe this, she was an incompetent woman who was in over her head and did not do what McCain wanted her to do..

    Where is the 150K wardrobe??? It has mysteriously disappeared.

    Actually it was given to charity. But, reading all those LW blogs, that spread all those lies about her as fact, you wouldn't know that.
