* FOX NEWS exposes Joe the Plumber

FOX NEWS exposes Joe the Plumber …

  • On Thursday, John McCain shouted: “I’m going to Washington, and I’m going to bring Joe the Plumber with me!”
  • a statement from the McCain campaign praises the plumber’s “penetrating and clear analysis.”
  • At a campaign rally this week, Mr. Wurzelbacher was filmed agreeing with another McCain supporter that electing Mr. Obama would be “death to Israel.”
  • For five painful live-on-Fox minutes the next day, FOX anchor Sheperd Smith repeatedly asked Mr. Wurzelbacher what evidence he had to back up that charge.
  • Mr. Wurzelbacher refused to answer.
  • Mr. Smith said: “I just want to make this 100 percent perfectly clear. Barack Obama has said repeatedly and demonstrated repeatedly that Israel will always be a friend of the United States no matter what happens once he becomes president of the United States. His words.”
  • “The rest of it,” he said, “man, it just gets frightening sometimes.” Yes it does.

LMW COMMENT: The reluctance of John McCain to let go of the Joe the Plumber nonsense reveals the absence of any serious thought process in his increasingly frazzled head. Yesterday, McCain addressed a campaign rally as “my fellow prisoners.” The man has clearly lost it. His choice of Sarah Palin is now revealed as the first step down the slippery slope of his demise as a viable candidate.
