I Am Joe

From David Burge, yesterday:

.... Politicians — Sarah Palin, Bill Clinton, et al. — obviously have to put up with some rude, nasty sh*t, but it's right there in the jobs description. Joe the Plumber is different. He was a guy tossing a football with his kid in the front yard of his $125,000 house when a politician picked him out as a prop for a 30 second newsbite for the cable news cameras. Joe simply had the temerity to speak truth (or, if you prefer, an uninformed opinion) to power, for which the politico-media axis apparently determined that he must be humiliated, harassed, smashed, destroyed....


In a few days, the Mainstream Media branch of the Democratic Establishment has done more digging into Joe Wurzelbacher's life than it has done into Barack Hussein Obama's life in two years.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but... God damn them all to hell and back.

(Thanks, Vanderleun.)
