Joe the Plumber goes to Israel to cover the war

He, and I quote  "wants to go over there and let their 'Average Joes' share their story."

Satire is dead, Irony is dead and we now live in farce!

  1. He should go to Gaza and let the average Mo’s tell their story too. And then, he’ll be dead.

  2. Wow.
    That is all it takes to be a photojournalist/journalist?
    What a waste of studies.

  3. I think we should send “Fred the Alcoholic” and “Corporal Bob with PTSD syndrome” as well. It’s important to cover these stories from all angles.

  4. That is all it takes to be a photojournalist/journalist?
    What a waste of studies.

    They made you take classes, Chris? WTF!? Why? I thought all the news stories and photos were sent in by completely impartial stringers now? Just like the computer industry, I see! The schools are always 10 years out of date and teaching techniques nobody ever used in the first place :(

  5. they should give him to hamas, maybe he can ruin them just like he ruined poor mccain! i knew the idf had an ace up their sleeves…

  6. Well, I expect we’ll get closer to the truth from him than we do from c. ammanpour and her ilk.

    A choice between the uninformed and the propagandists. How lucky we are.

  7. The dirty little secret is that, if he can read and write for a deadline, he is every bit as qualified as a person with a degree in journalism from the “better” schools in the United States.

    Also, please keep in mind that he has a house and family to pay for, and that the Ohio state government made it very difficult for him to get any work for a while. This man is likely to be in debt up to his ears, and he has doubtless discovered that television appearances pay better than plumbing jobs.

  8. Valerie;

    Plumbing is a very well paid profession. I had a relative who did it.

  9. I am surprised by your reaction.

    If one can be President because one is black why one cannot be a journalist just because one is a plumber?

    What are you all, some kind of anti-plumber racists?

  10. “some kind of anti-plumber racists”

    Plumbers are a race?

  11. I say let’s wait until he files a few repports. Then we can beat up on him.
    As dick says we might get closer to the truth than with C. Ammanpour; a devoted leftist by anyone’s standard and currently considered the “voice” of the Middle East.
    Given the odds, I’ll take JTP…

    #10: The word race has lost meaning, Uragan. For instance, if you criticize Islam – which is not a race – you’ll be called racist. Therefore “anti-plumber racist” is perfectly OK. Anything goes. :)

  13. Eva @ 12,

    I couldn’t have said better myself.

    Thank you

    PS. ‘Race’ card lost its luster. Used too often, too freely, too hypocritically, too needlessly, …

  14. Heck – blacks, Hispanics, browns, reds – aren’t races either. Just human beings with different colors. So why not a plumber race?

  15. If that wasn’t enough Joe has a challenge from this guy. http://umarlee.com/2009/01/09/umar-lee-challenges-joe-the-plumber-to-a-fight/

    Whoa, that Umar Lee fellow is quite the basketcase…! How did you wind up on his blog? :D

    I have altogether too much time on my hands this week. Sometimes I just follow comments and see where they lead. Come to think of thats how I found my way here.

  19. I’ve read Lee’s blog too. I found my way through a link on the Sudanese Thinker’s blog (Drima). He has a section of links to converts to Islam and apostates. Lee is quite the angry man as are some of the people who comment. I don’t visit much, only when really bored and in need of a jolt!

    so joe is the new sarah staircasedwitness bluff… ah the Americaners , astonishing !!!! LMAO

  21. Hey, if I were Israeli I would try anything at this point to save face. It’s a clear cut battle for public opinion and also a clear indication that even Zionism is in panic mode and has a conscience. Didn’t the Israeli’s at one time state that they regret the Arabs pushing them to the point where they had to slaughter their children. Ah the Goldameir days…how time flies..(swat!) dam, missed it!

  22. That reminds me…

    Israeli-Palestinian politics.

    What happens when a fly falls into a coffee cup?

    The Italian – throws the cup, breaks it, and walks away in a fit of rage.

    The German – carefully washes the cup, sterilizes it and makes a new
    cup of coffee.

    The Frenchman – takes out the fly, and drinks the coffee.

    The Chinese – eats the fly and throws away the coffee.

    The Russian – Drinks the coffee with the fly, since it was extra with no charge.

    The Israeli – sells the coffee to the Frenchman, the fly to the
    Chinese, drinks tea and uses the extra money to invent a device that
    prevents flies from falling into coffee.

    The Palestinian – blames the Israeli for the fly falling in his
    coffee, protests the act of aggression to the UN, takes a loan from
    the European Union to buy a new cup of coffee, uses the money to
    purchase explosives and then blows up the coffee house where the
    Italian, the Frenchman, the Chinese, the German and the Russian are
    all trying to explain to the Israeli that he should give away his cup
    of tea to the Palestinian.

  23. Um Frank, didnt the beloved Igrun, Hagana gangs do exactly that as well in the beginning until their terror tactics won them an occupied country? So what’s wrong with the Palestinians doing that?

  24. The American Indians committed some pretty horrific and unprovoked atrocities against the early settlers in North America too. So, what was wrong with the settlers’ doing the same?

  25. Nothing, lets all make chop Sui out of each other.

    :) :) :)

  26. hey, frank, in your fable is the French :lol:

  27. oops, I forgot to edit the raisonable is the French
