The Big Leagues

Samuel Wurzelbacher (“Joe the Plumber,” not to be confused with “Josephine the Plumber” who used to sell Comet cleanser on TV), is running for Congress in Toledo and is finding out that it’s hard out there for a guy who’s used to being fawned over by Fox News. The poor schlub got on CNN and was asked about a homophobic statement (“I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children”) he made a while back.

Listen, in my dictionary and in everyone’s dictionary from the 1970s, the word queer did mean strange and unusual. There was no slur to it. Do you challenge that? Come on. You’re trying to do a gotcha moment, it’s quite obvious. I’m allowed to have my opinion as an American but it seems the left becomes very intolerant when you have an opinion other than what they state. My opinions are mine.

Aw, poor baby got his fe-fe’s hurt by the mean old interrogator on CNN. Y’see, bullies aren’t supposed to be challenged, and if they are, it’s SO unfair.

Hey, Joe, you’re in the big leagues now. This is where anything you ever said, anyone you ever talked to, anyone you ever stood next to at a bus stop, and anyone you ever hugged is fair game. And don’t blame the Democrats; it was Karl Rove, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh, Glenn Beck, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, and the Mighty Wurlitzer of Fox News that turned gotcha journalism into the new norm.

I’m going to love watching Marcy Kaptur steal his lunch money, drink his milkshake, and kick his ass all the way into Maumee Bay.
