Today's Instant Ignorant Dolt - Joe The Plumber!

On my, we really should have him grandfathered in, as one, colossal, gigantic Ignorant Dolt.

That was pretty clear, the moment the camera first brought him into focus, even before Stumblin' Bumblin' John McCain turned him into the 'Bobby", to Mommy Moose's "Annette", during his Mickey Mouse campaign last year.

The wanna-be-plumber/politician, has, innately, the gifts for being a colossal, gigantic Ignorant Dolt.

It's natural to him, warm and comforting ... Like putting on his pants every day ...

And, he keeps insisting on showing us!

‘Joe the Plumber’ on Dobson, theocracy and GOP hypocrites

In a hastily transcribed interview with no apparent rebuttal to his claims, Christianity Today gives Joe an open mike to present his own special brand of right wing conservativism:


In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

At a state level, it’s up to them. I don’t want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it’s wrong. People don’t understand the dictionary—it’s called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It’s not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we’re supposed to do—what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we’re supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I’ve had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they’re people, and they’re going to do their thing.
That is Joey, protect the children.

Wrap them up, cover them, shield them with your ignorant bigotry.

Digby has a great take on this, and Tas, over on "Comments From Left Field" points out another Flying Monkey who DEFENDS Instant Ignorant Dolt Plumber Joe.

Steve M., from No More Mister Nice Blog, reports the McCain mascot is simply showing off his Right Wing Freak Show diploma;
Wurzelbacher isn't uninformed. He's informed in the way right-wingers would like all of us to be informed -- that is, he gets all his information from wingnut and evangelical sources.

Over at Free Republic, the regulars react to every sign of trouble in the mainstream media, from newspaper shutdowns to downticks in movie box-office receipts, with the phrase "Dinosaur Media Death Watch." The sincere hope on the right is that someday there'll be nothing to read, nothing to watch, nothing to listen to except what Joe the Plumber reads and watches and listens to: basically, Christian radio and talk radio and right-wing Web sites and Fox.

A nation of Wurzelbachers -- that's the goal.
Samuel Wurzelbacker, aka Joe The Plumber... The Instant Ignorant Dolt crown and sceptre is all yours today.

And, we're pretty confident you will proudly carry them well.
