McCain's New Joe the Plumber Ad Goes Where He Has Not Gone Before: Correctly Calling Obama's "Tax Cuts" for Non-Taxpayers Welfare

Racist, I know. Which is good. If McCain's willing to be a racist on handouts for those who pay no taxes whatsoever -- spreading the wealth from those who produce a lot of it to those who produce very little, if any, of it -- perhaps he'll finally dare to make the less racist point that Obama voted present on reforming Fannie and Freddie, the Democrats' previous most prominent spread-the-wealth institutions.

Of course, that was covert spreading the wealth -- subsidizing mortgages for bad credit risks by putting good credit risks on the line for their defaults.

That covert, indirect system of spreading the wealth worked out so well Obama now wants to take it to the next level -- direct, open income redistribution.

Via Hot Air, with the MSM's new determination to vet Joe the Plumber more rigorously than the vetted Barack the ACORN Trainer.

I think this subhed from a NYT front-page headline r on Joe Wurzelbacher says it all:

‘Joe the Plumber’ Is Under Scrutiny

Yes, I'll be he is.

Joe Wurzelbacher's purported distant relationship to Charles Keating is newsworthy, the left is telling me, while Barack Obama's friendship and protoge relationship with terrorist William Ayers is not.

I'm sorry - - what's Joe Wurzelbacher running for again? As far as I know he hasn't declared for Congress.


Note that the story isn't really Joe -- it's Barack Obama's answer about spreading the wealth.

Note however the NYT chooses to focus on denigrating and attacking the man who elicited the remark, rather than the remark itself.

What is the object here? If you can prove that Joe Wurzelbacher, say, is consistently late paying his Columbia Record House subscription, that means Obama didn't say what he said?

Is that how it works?

Obama endorses socialism, so the game is to personally destroy the man who inadvertently elicited Obama's endorsement of socialism?

Let's say Joe the Plumber kills hobos, as I do. What the hell does that have to do with the fact that Obama said he wanted to "spread the wealth"?

Thanks to Andy the Squirrel.

Soooo... The media sleuths have now ferreted out that Joe the Plumber voted in a Republican Primary.

Meanwhile, they do not bother to report that Barack the Presidential Candidate was a member of the radical ACORN political wing, the New Party.

I'm so glad the MSM has its priorities straight.

Shock: Joe Wurzelbacher not related to Charles Keating, despite the leftwing blogosphere "reporting" this earlier.

Well, fuckheads. There are pretty credible reports of a close relationship between Obama and The Terrorist Bill Ayers. Maybe you can put some of your energies into that.
