Joe the Plumber Enters Witness Protection, Changes Name to Ahmadinejad

You've got to figure the left will find his name much more palatable now. But given the gangland-style media assault on the guy, can you blame him for going into hiding? Who knows, maybe he can go back to Alaska. As part of his terms, however, and in return for just a taste of freedom, Team Obama did force him to cast an absentee ballot because, you know, every vote counts.

This is probably what sent him over the edge.

Via Hot Air.

OK, but seriously, the absurdity of one innocent civilian getting more scrutiny in two days time than Barack Obama has received in two years campaigning is a damning indictment of the drive-by media.

John McCain has taken notice.
"The response from Senator Obama and his campaign yesterday was to attack Joe. People are digging through his personal life and he has TV crews camped out in front of his house," McCain told a rowdy crowd at Florida International University. "He didn't ask for Senator Obama to come to his house. He wasn't recruited or prompted by our campaign. He just asked a question. And Americans ought to be able to ask Senator Obama tough questions without being smeared and targeted with political attacks."

McCain said Joe's question is important "because Senator Obama's plan would raise taxes on small businesses that employ 16 million Americans."

That, said McCain, will kill jobs at a time when America needs to be creating jobs.

"Senator Obama says that he wanted to spread your wealth around. When politicians talk about taking your money and spreading it around, you'd better hold onto your wallet," McCain said. "Senator Obama claims that wants to give a tax break to the middle class, but not only did he vote for higher taxes on the middle class in the Senate, his plan gives away your tax dollars to those who don't pay taxes. That's not a tax cut, that's welfare. America didn't become the greatest nation on earth by redistributing wealth; we became the greatest nation by creating new wealth."
Keep it up. There's room for hope. The plumbers are fighting back.
As Democratic nominee Barack Obama pulled into the Roanoke Civic Center on Friday, he was greeted by the usual McCain campaign supporters that show at Obama rallies. But this time, those waving McCain-Palin signs were joined by dozens of people waving standard-issue plungers. Some wore white t-shirts emblazoned with "I AM JOE THE PLUMBER" on the front.
