Just in time for Christmas

JOHN AND SARAH are now off on what they are calling their Joe the Plumber campaign tour to lure blue-collar workers in the final days of their  war hoop.  I have to salute them:  Never has an obscure human being meant  so much to the rhetoric of a presidential campaign as Joe the Plumber.  His name will be added to the pantheon of  American pop culture alongside Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman as inspirational reminders of how pro-America goes about its seasonal business.  Obviously blindsided by the introduction of a free agent into the McCain playbook, it appears anti-America Obama has nothing to match it, proving once again that he doesn't have the imagination and experience to run the country.    So much for the October surprise.

As long as we are in the business of naming names, Palin, who is failing as McCain's first-round draft choice,  says that when somebody called her a "redneck", she said "Thank you."  There's obviously a tough woman under that $150,000 designer wardrobe.

Where's Dick Nixon when you need him?

Can somebody tell me which "charity" will receive the Saks and Nieman treasure trove after the election? I'll willingly move long enough to become a charity case and help my wife apply for the clothing. $150,000 of clothes in the closet will double the price of our house. I can then apply for a reverse mortgage and live on Easy Street.

The Republican Party is just a bunch of white racists. It is filled with a bunch of Angry White Guys (and Gals) who think the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act ruined America because it made it a lot harder for whites from Ireland, England, France, Germany, Italy, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. and made it a lot easier for the Chinese, Indians, Jamaicans, Mexicans, Egyptians, etc. to immigrate to the U.S. What these racists don't GET is that the 1965 Hart-Celler Immigration Act (Thank You Senator Ted Kennedy) greatly increased Diversity in the U.S. which has made OUR Nation stronger and a much more multicultural place to live. Before 1965 Whites of European descent made up 88% of the U.S. population. Now whites only make up 65% of the U.S. population and by 2042 they will only make up 49% of the population. By 2100 Whites of European descent will only make up about 30% of the U.S. population and also by the year 2100 only 3% of the World Population will be White. The 2008 Election is just a turning point in American History though. By the end of this century white Europeans will be out of power in the United States(FINALLY!) and then we can finally end WHITE PRIVILEDGE and can get REAL Affirmative Action, REAL Reparations, REAL Change, and begin to redistribute wealth and property back to those who deserve it. The World is Flat. The white racist Republicans just don't seem to get it!

Joey the Plumber
was a holly jolly soul
with his cue ball head
that is hard as lead
defeating socialism is his goal

There must have been some magic in that old tax lien they found.
for when they laid it on his head he began to dance around.

Joey the Plumber it's time to leave the stage.
your 15 minutes are up
so fill up your cup
We are all sick of you it is time to turn the page.
