Joe the Plumber has Palinitis - Not Smart Enough to Keep His Mouth Shut

Proverbs 17:28: "Even a fool is counted wise when he holds his peace; when he shuts his lips, he is considered perceptive."

"Better to be thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt."

So now he has the media attention all over his ass (and we all know how unpleasant plumber's crack can be) and everyone knows:

He's not even a licensed plumber, nor has he completed an apprenticeship. (I hope he doesn't lose his job)

He has no clue about small business accounting or taxes. (The business is not likely to be making $250,000 profit - taxes are paid on profit - after expenses, not revenue, so all these expenses you can't afford because of taxes - natch - nothing to do with that!).

He doesn't even pay all the taxes he owes - he has a tax lien.

He doesn't understand enough about government policy to vote in his own interest (to avoid electing someone who dances as well as Sammy Davis, Jr. - I'm sure the next words out of his mouth will be - I'm not prejudiced/a racist).

Despite the pundits who think this is not working for McSame, I think this plays perfectly into the Bush - Cheney - McSame - Pain campaign to allow anyone to do anything, whether it is a small-minded, self-serving, small-town mayor (who overthrew one network of self-dealing to create her own) being (Vice) President of the United States, or a Generation Kill Iraqi veteran who can teach our children without taking any of those annoying tests. It is clear there is a demand out there for unqualified teachers, plumbers, etc because like Palin says - we need to feed our hungry markets with crap.
