Joe The Plumber Heads to Israel – Quick, I Need A Plunger! January 14, 2009

Well, whaddya know, good ol’ Joe has found his calling at last. First it was plumbing (without a license). Then, it was Obama campaign trail inquisitor. Next up was country music star. Then he decides to become a turncoat and bash McCain.

What other rabbit can this crafty cat pull out of his hat?

How about war correspondent – yeah, that’s a good fit. Last week, it was reported that Joe the Plumber was heading to Israel to give us a perspective not often heard or seen – the Israeli side. Aaaahhh, yes, clearly, that’s what American media have been missing all these years.

And what news organization is tapping this guy for his ingenius insights on war in the Middle East? Pajamas TV. Yup, that’s right. There’s a news organization named Pajamas TV.

My head hurts just typing this crap. Perhaps it would be best to pass this on to Jon Stewart before I suffer a head injury:

    Well, um, we have been missing the Israeli side. Still, I’m not thrilled with Joe’s comment:

    How can we be missing the Israeli side? Israel only allows reporters to cover the fighting from Israel because they’ve banned journalists from entering Gaza.

    However, I guess I should clarify that although there has been significant media coverage of the Palestinians in Gaza bearing the brunt of this attack, it’s rather surprising because the only narrative that the US public has heard for the last 60 years prior to these last 2 weeks has been the Israeli one. Thus, I think it’s absurd say that we need a guy like Joe the plumber to open our eyes to something missing in public discourse.

    And now I’m annoyed at myself for actively participating in lengthening this guy’s 15 minutes of fame.
