"Crazy Joe" the Plumber embarrasses McCain

Yet again, the McCain campaign's vetting process seems to have failed them. Today "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher says publicly and on video that "a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel."

That's some awesome crazy.

Here's the funny bit, though, from Fox News' Carl Cameron.
I talked to the McCain campaign a short while ago and they were hesitant to put too much distance between Joe Wurzelbacher, because he obviously has become such a central part of McCain's argument that Obama's tax cut plan amounts to a redistribution of wealth, which he has called class warfare.
McCain is stuck between bullshit and batshit crazy.

Update: Check out the new video with Fox News' Shepard Smith trying to get "Crazy Joe" to explain why Obama would mean the end of Israel. "Let people go out and find--that's what I've been telling people--get out and vote, but find out the issues. Find out why they would think I would say that or why Obama says what he says of McCain says what he says." In other words, Joe based his statement on nothing. Neat.

Smith ends his discussion with Wurzelbacher by reiterating that Obama has said "Israel will always be a friend of the United States, no matter what happens" and then shaking his head and saying, sadly, "The rest of it, man, it just gets frightening sometimes."

Update: "Crazy Joe" stated this, of course, as he officially endorsed McCain. He also suggested that electing Obama would mean we would no longer be a democracy. Looks like McCain's got the paranoid rabidly-pro-Israel right-wing-Minuteman-like conspiracy theorist plumber vote all wrapped up.

A cursory look into Mr. Obama's past will show that, although a gross exaggeration, that he will not be the most Israel-friendly. Just today we find out that the LA Times is now sitting on a video of BO at a party praising "friend and frequent dinner companion" Rashid Khalidi that they refuse to release. Add this to Jesse Jackson's comments (whose son is BO's campaign co-chair), and maybe Joe isn't so "crazy" after all, just critical, which is much more than can be said of BO's supporters. He has so many locked files on his past that he will not share that he makes Richard Nixon look like the FOI Poster Child.

Why is it that BO supporters seem to have a name for everyone, like "Crazy"? This is what people do who do not have a valid response in an argument. They name call. What happened to the tolerant, accepting liberal voices heard prior to BO dropping his hat in the ring? Is this because no one can call BO anything, including a socialist, without being called a racist? Shooting fish in a barrel appears to be a sport that is alive and well in the blogosphere.

Khaladi? The same Khaladi that John McCain funded to the tune of about half a million dollars?

Why does McCain hate Israel?

Why is empathy for the Palestinians (who, after all, had their land taken from them) always interpreted as anti-Israel? Can't one look at this situation and try to see both sides of the conflict without being branded as a traitor to Israel/America?
