Not necessarily waiting for the other shoe to drop

Well, that didn’t take long. Suit’s debate opponent, Joe the Plumber owes back taxes, doesn’t even possess a plumber’s license and is in danger of being denied practicing his trade in hand, altogether. Fat chance now on ever owning that plumbing business which is poor Joe’s idea of the “American Dream”. Clueless Joe… what was this guy thinking by having the audacity to question Suit’s tax plan? Didn’t he get the message about what happens when you are not fully prostrate before The One. Trust us, we are running as fast as we can in the opposite direction if we are ever within eye-shot of Suit.

Of course, Joe experiences the misfortune of being an American citizen (as far as we know) and not an illegal alien whereby an impenetrable lead shield would’ve protected Clueless Joe from a righteously dogged media.

As it is, we suppose we’ll have to wait just a little bit longer for the truth squad to get around to reporting-out on some tax problems of Suit’s very own campaign treasurer.

In the future, everyone will be famous for 15 minutes. Joe The Plumber will now be famous for being one more of the failed McCain campaign's desperate grasps at salvaging something from the wreckage.

As somebody commented yesterday: Would McCain have said anything if it weren't "Joe", but Tariq The Plumber? The Palin-McCain campaign has been trying all along to aim a 50's McCarthy-esque campaign of fear at Ward & June Cleaver in the 21st Century.

If McCain's staff bothered to properly vet poor Joe in the first place -- as they properly should have if running a professional campaign -- rather than to just involuntarily throw him open to the scrutiny of the national stage, would wouldn't have to watch the poor guy squirm every night on our TV screens.

Mongo, I completely agree. This "vetting" business has gotten completely out of hand.

But rather some poor ol' Joe the Plumber I'd settle for a simple vetting of a Presidential candidate and his campaign treasurer.
