Fuck you. No you're not.

These three words have pissed me off since Big Mac first blathered on and on (and on) about this one guy at the debate. They're trying to make him "Joe the Everyman", and to keep things fresh are now bombarding us with tons more "Name + Occupation" examples they're coming up with. Joe the Plumber. Don the Dairyman. Bob the Builder. Dora the Explorer. Damn, it's annoying.

It's also pointless. McCain supporters are carrying signs saying "I'm Joe the Plumber". They got a commercial now that says the same thing. Do you idiots even remember who "Joe the Plumber" really is? It sounds like a hard-working American because his name is "Joe", and he's got an honest blue-collar occupation like plumbing. But really, he was the guy who made $250,000 and was about to buy his own company. That's why he was worried Obama's tax plan might not be good for him, since Obama's tax plan is geared towards the other 95% of Americans that aren't so well-off.

Funny thing is, even though he is in that top 5% (barely), I heard on the news from two different sources that Obama's tax plan would actually save Joe more than McCain's would in his particular case. But that's beside the point. All of these ignorant, brainwashed followers are crying out "I'm Joe the Plumber" when they have no fucking clue what they're talking about. I can't speak for every one of them, of course, just the friends and co-workers I've seen saying this same thing. But I severely doubt that almost everyone at a McCain rally chanting this makes over $250,000 per year. I doubt that many people own their own businesses, and really fit the same scenario that Joe does...which is exactly why he was asking Big O about all that in the first place.

tl;dr: If you want to support McCain, I don't think it's such a great idea but do whatever you want. Just try not to look like a complete idiot while you're doing it, and actually think things through before you start spouting off mindless drivel.

I'm NASH and I approve this motherfucking message.
