I might not always agree with Meghan McCain’s political views, but you got to love her brutal honesty on some things:
Yet even as the balance begins to shift, the old guard is still yapping in the foreground. Shortly before McCain sat for this interview, Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, gave an interview to Christianity Today in which he complained about “queers” and declared, “I wouldn’t have them anywhere near my children.” Unprompted, McCain rails against the man her father’s presidential campaign touted as an American everyman and made a showpiece in the weeks before the election. “Joe the Plumber -- you can quote me -- is a dumbass. He should stick to plumbing.”
The worst part is that the GOP decided to prop up the dumbness that is Joe the Plumber and tout it as symbolic of every American. It’s really an insult to the majority of this country, and if the GOP wants to build their party on a base of Joe’s, then they can plan on being the permanent minority.
