Palin's Joe, McCain's Joe: Who Cares?

Sarah introduced us to Joe Six Pack. Senator McCain to Joe the Plumber. Both were determined to convince us that they were champions of the "little guy." They cared. They were there for the "little guy."

Then the truth came out.

Sarah Palin cared so much for a popular sheriff that she used her muscle to get him fired. Tried to get a small town librarian fired, too, but the "little people" she claims to care so much for stood up and shouted "shame!" and she was forced to back down.

Turns out Sarah Palin does care . . . for herself.

Senator McCain tried to convince us that he was there for Joe the Plumber, this poor man who wouldn't be able to start his own business because evil Barak Obama was going to take away his hard earned money. Evil Barak Obama didn't care for the poor plumber who only made $250,000 a year.

Then we find out that: A) McCain didn't ask Joe's permission to use his name. Now the poor guy is being harrassed to death. B) McCain had no idea who Joe was. Turns out he's not anywhere near to making $250,000 nor opening his own business. Turns out, in fact, he isn't even a licensed plumber. And he owes $1,200 in back taxes. And the court has a lien on his house for failure to pay those taxes. Turns out he doesn't only not want to pay taxes on $250,000, he doesn't want to pay taxes at all!

Senator McCain was using Joe. That's how much he cares for the "little guy." Feigning a concern so he could claim a "gotcha" moment with his opponent, a man he hates so much that he'll do anything to make sure he doesn't get elected. Even use a "little guy" like Joe the Plumber.

Senator McCain cares like Sarah Palin cares . . . . for himself.

And he is still so clueless that he thinks a person who makes $250,000 a year is "middle class." But then how can he know? He doesn't even know how many houses he owns.

They don't care. That's why they're going to lose. They don't care.
