Barack Obama must be insecure in his asshood, or else why would he say what he said about John McCain fighting for the plumbers? How appropriate it would be if this lands him in deep shit.
Maybe if Barack Obama knew some actual plumbers instead of a menagerie of lefty creeps, he'd understand a little about the economy. But he asks "how many plumbers do you know who make $250,000 a year?" Actually, if Joe has other plumbers working for him $250K isn't a whole lot of revenue. Is Obama really stupid and out of touch enough to think that a plumber in rural Ohio would take home $250K/year by himself? Wow, just wait until he sees a supermarket checkout!
I'm not sure I'd want to live in a world without plumbers. Politicians, OTOH....
In homage to plumbers I offer this NWA Classic Post
