Plumber is king for a day at Republican Shindig

From Politico

The Conservative Political Action Conference may not have A-list Govs. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) or Bobby Jindal (R-La.) this year, but it has Samuel Wurzelbacher.

Wurzelbacher, better known as “Joe the Plumber,” is getting the rock-star treatment at CPAC, mobbed by attendees seeking autographs, handshakes and photos.

“Oh my god, there he is,” one flustered young woman shouted, holding her hand over her mouth upon spotting the McCain campaign icon.

“I love this guy,” a middle-aged man said as he put his arm around Wurzelbacher to pose for a picture.

CPAC, a blend of movement and politics, plays host to heavyweight Republican pols, conservative policy wonks, fringe groups and numerous other organizations and interests. It’s hard to tell where Wurzelbacher fits into this mix, but he undoubtedly does.

Wurzelbacher has no formal role at the conference other than as a headliner at a Thursday panel titled “conservatism 2.0” held by the conservative blogging outfit Pajamas TV. Unlike other marquee CPAC speakers, after giving his presentation, Wurzelbacher hasn’t disappeared. Rather, he is ducking in and out of panel discussions and speeches.

I wonder where the Republican leader Rush Limbaugh is?

  1. Joe the Plumber is a perfect example of the ReThugs. I wonder if any one of them actually see themselves in him? Or if they are just jealous of his publicity?

  2. Can you imagine (LLL) they actually hold this guy up as somekind of start or hero! I mean they can’t find anyone better? The country has Barrack and Michelle Obama and they come up with this guy!

    Thank you for the comments 🙂

    It’s true, the human race is experiencing a decline in intelligence. Personally, I think it has something to do with the gene pool being flooded with “flustered young women” who think morons are sexy…

  4. Hehehehehe sidhe you go it, the gene pool has been contaminated I’m afraid. Can you believe ANYONE would be in any way attracted to the guys! I mean I am a married guy, and I may not be able to make that statement but come on now…. lol

    Thanks for the post Sidhe 🙂
