arma virumque cano (et alia)
Joe the Plumber. Hmmmm. That name rings a bell...something about sewage, I think.
You always have a peculiarly excremental focus, Muckaly.
I loved Peter Sellars in that movie.The big difference is that the character Chauncey was a true innocent who did not know how to manipulate, he was manipulated, but his innocence was like kung fu.Our boy Joe, is anything but innocent and is workin the system....Wanna buy a blck velvet painting, only 250 bucks on eBay!
I love the image of this regular Joe among the Republican think-tank members blurting out inanities. The idea that one of those conservative geniuses might stop, ponder what he said, and repackage it to his confreres is just too funny.
Mudrake calls the shot...big b pointlessly tries to use a pine scented air freshener to mask the stench of reality.
Anal retentive, no doubt.
Don't forget, I have friends who are friends of Joe the Plumber since high school. They say he's a good guy, likable. I believe 'em. Can't blame anyone for capitalizing on his 14 seconds of fame --however short-lived. Especially in this economy. He didn't make himself famous; McCain did it --and the media.Mudrake always knows his psychological terms --seems to hang with the mental health professionals? or the neo-Freudians. On the couch, I would guess.
O I'm sorry. I should be more careful. My troll may really have a mental health disability and I need to refrain from any teasing and go back to ignoring him -out of kindness.
