Quote of the Day II – Dueling Joe the Plumber Endorsements

One is a “serious” voice of conservatism. The other purportedly an air-headed floozie. You be the judge.

The blurb on the book jacket of Joe the Plumber’s new book:

“Joe’s story is the iconic American tale. He’s a patriot who became instantly famous for simply asking a question that millions of us wanted asked. As my friend Sean Hannity would say, Joe is a great American!” — Mike Gallagher, Syndicated Talk Radio

Shortly before [Meghan] McCain sat for this interview, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, gave an interview to Christianity Today in which he complained about “queers” and declared, “I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.” Unprompted, McCain rails against the man her father’s presidential campaign touted as an American everyman and made a showpiece in the weeks before the election.

“Joe the Plumber — you can quote me — is a dumbass. He should stick to plumbing.”
