Joe The Plumber Appalled by John McCain

Joe the Plumber might have campaigned for John McCain, but he didn’t think much of him. The Politico reports:

Wurzelbacher told conservative radio host Glenn Beck that he felt “dirty” after “being on the campaign trail and seeing some of the things that take place.”

Recalling a conversation he had with McCain about the $700 billion financial industry bailout in September, Wurzelbacher said: “When I was on the bus with him, I asked him a lot of questions about the bailout because most Americans did not want that to happen.”

“I asked him some pretty direct questions,” he continued. “Some of the answers you guys are gonna receive — they appalled me, absolutely. I was angry. In fact I wanted to get off the bus after I talked to him.”

Joe might not have liked McCain, but he was sufficiently brainwashed by right wing talking points to support him saying,“honestly, because the thought of Barack Obama as president scares me even more.” Joe is a great example of how Republican scare tactics are effective on the poorly educated and uninformed voters. As further evidence of how uninformed Joe is, he believes “Sarah Palin is absolutely the real deal.” If this is truly the new face of the Republican Party they just might suffer the same fate as the Whig Party.

    OMG–Sarah Palin … I still have nightmares of her being anywhere near the White House! I would love to see a woman as President but not that bimbo cheerleader. I’ve had cats that were more intelligent than her because at least they learned to change their behavior with a little training.  

    And some of the “drooling” comments by men (“she’s hot”) were absolutely revolting…

    If opposing the bailout was truly such an important issue for Joe, he would’ve abandoned supporting either candidate.  The fool is just trying to stretch his 15 minutes, that’s all.
