"Crazy Joe" the Plumber embarrasses McCain
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.
