Quote of the Day

“I asked a question. When you can’t ask a question to your leaders anymore, that gets scary. That bothers me.” - Joe the Plumber

"Now, the well-to-do elites who run the Democratic Party — and their surrogates — greet these people with brickbats. They insult them, talk down to them, and even try to destroy them. Isn’t that the sort of war on the working class that Democrats are always accusing those greedy and heartless Republicans of waging?"

That from Ruben Navarrette Jr. who also opines here on the dogged determination of the press to look into every facet of Joe Wurzelbacher's life but not execute due diligence regarding Obama's ties to less savory characters like Tony Rezko and Bill Ayers.

Seems to me that when Curious Joe asked his question, President-Elect Obama spent a good amount time answering it.

On the other hand, Sen. McCain -- as a major party nominee -- continually invoking Joe's name for days on end as a pillar of his stump speech positively begs for inquiry as to who this guy is. Only an inquiry into who an afore-almost unknown nominated candidate for VP is would be more reasonable fodder for investigation.
