Oh, god, please, no
Will someone knock this guy down and sit on him already?
Joe Wurzelbacher, the most famous plumber in America thanks to John McCain and Sarah Palin, told conservative talk radio host Laura Ingraham Friday he's considering a run for Congress in 2010.
Oh, isn't THAT friggin' lovely, just what we need thank you very much.
Qualifications? Why, who needs crazy non-mavericky crap like being qualified when you're all popular and stuff?
But Wurzelbacher, who gained fame after he challenged Barack Obama on his tax plan earlier this month, has attained a certain rock-star status in the Republican Party and his entrance into the race would likely be greeted with instant excitement and media coverage.
Ingraham herself said she would immediately volunteer for his campaign and help him with campaign advertising and PR. Meanwhile, the National Republican Congressional Committee said they would welcome Wurzelbacher's candidacy with "open arms.”
Oh, good, guys, lots of luck with that grand plan. Only, when he opens his ignorant piehole and pops off something Bachmannian in its stupidity, don't start whining that the liberal media's being mean to you. You asked for it. You started it.
And who are the great minds behind "Joe the Unlicensed Non-Taxpaying Plumber Goes To Washington"?
The usual stooges:
Wurzelbacher's comments come a week after a group of college Republicans launched a Web site with the hope of drafting him for a congressional run.(emphasis added)
“Washington, DC is broken and it needs to be fixed. Joe Wurzelbacher has a real-world perspective and the right attitude to clean up the mess on Capitol Hill,” says the group’s Web site, which carries the slogan, “Plunge the crap out of Washington.”
America's youth in action, folks.
And trust me - this isn't the last time we're going to see mavericky maverickness like this. After all, just think - if he does somehow manage to get his butt-crack into Congress, he'll have enough experience to run as Palin's VP in 2012! Wheee!
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go throw up.
