Joe the Plumber — or, as he is also known, Joe the Wurzelbacher — is running for Congress in Ohio. There's a law that states that if you run as a conservative, you have to release a video shooting a gun. There's also another law, called Godwin's Law, which I think you'll find extremely relevant…
In 2008, a desperate presidential campaign seized upon a man they knew little about. In 2012, a bunch of vegetables, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated.
Joe's argument against gun control would have probably been more effective if he blamed gun control for his own fame.

Actual officially official congressional candidate Sam "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher — who has apparently been too busy campaigning to find the time to buy himself a suit — is really upset with how unserious and gimmicky politics has become lately.
Like, take this interview he did with CNN last night. Those smut-peddlers had the nerve to ask him to comment on a couple of words and sentences about how gay people are not fit to be near children that just so happen to have come out of his mouth.
Can you believe they get away with this stuff…

Does anybody know what Herman Cain was talking about in his CPAC speech this afternoon? One minute he was endorsing Joe the Plumber for Congress, and the next he was warning against "stupid people and ignorant people."
Which is it?! You're sending mixed messages here…
Former presidential candidate Herman Cain endorsed 2008 campaign mini-celebrity Joe the Plumber in his bid for Congress in a speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
Cain said Joe the Plumber (née Wurzelbacher), is a leading proponent of his 9-9-9 tax plan — which largely fell flat with this crowd of conservative activists…
Cain used his remarks to attack the "stupid people and ignorant people are ruining America" — notably liberals.
I'll give him this. This is one subject on which Cain really is an expert…
