Joe the Plumber talks like he lives in some kind of Soviet-style dictatorship where people who disagree can be shot and smacked around. But, he’s a star at CPAC and fits right in with all the other right wing whackos. He’s one of the their great thinkers these days. From our friends Think Progress, who have bravely ventured into the CPAC snake pit:
On Wednesday, Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher said that if he were in Congress, he would “probably be in jail” because he’d be charged with “slapping some member.” He added, “And that’s not [bull] either.” ThinkProgress caught up with Joe at CPAC yesterday and asked him which members he would most like to slap. “Pretty much anybody that’s stood there and said anything bad about our troops, pretty much anybody who sat there and talked treasonous talk about America,” Joe said.
And, then Joe took it further, describing who could be shot, yes, shot:
The CPAC crew and their GOP brethren really have nothing, absolutely nothing, to offer the American people. How can anyone take them seriously? And, if someone said something like this at a progressive conference, the traditional media would be having a field day, spurred on by Republicans on the Hill. Just saying.
NOTE FROM JOHN: Paid your taxes yet, Joe?
