He did to Joe the Plumber what he did to Sarah Palin. John McCain thrust Joe into the national spotlight without proper (if any) vetting. Tax dodger. Unlicensed. Unloved by the plumbers union.
Backfire. Once again, anger has clouded McCain's judgment.
In Joe’s defense, he has held more press conferences than Gov. Palin.
By Thursday night, McCain was apologizing to Joe for dumping him onto the national stage – without any concern for the consequences to Joe.
At this hour, it is unknown if McCain has apologized to Palin. But he should. He used Palin without any regard for her or for the nation.
Country First my ass.
His campaign is faltering despite goofy stunts in which McCain attempts to turn the national attention away from the national economic crisis.
Democrats have someone to vote FOR: Barack Obama. Republicans only have someone to vote AGAINST: Barack Obama. Their anger is not patriotic. It is hatred.
Republican lies have not worked. Character assassination has not worked. Grandstanding stunts have not worked. McCain has run a lousy campaign ever since he turned it over to the hate-mongers from the Karl Rove team.
Racism is the only hope McCain has left. I hope I'm wrong.
