The Rum and Popcorn 100

I got a lot of problems with these people!

77. Joe the Plumber

I’m not blaming Joe himself, how did he know directly confronting Barack  Obama would open the door to dropping that unrealistic plan to start a plumbing company for the only real way to get ahead in the 21st century: Becoming a z-list celebrity!

This more for the Republicans who rallied towards him as a symbol of average, hardworking Joe…if Joe was making audition tapes for every possible reality TV series to get his ass the hell out of Ohio. That they thought passing this guy off as the working man tells you all they really need to know about what too much of the party thinks of working people.

Sure, trotting out “Winthorpe the Wealth Manager” would not have gone over so well, but at least it would have been real.
