What The Hell Is Wrong With Joe The Plumber?

Oh, wait, I remember. He's the media-annointed wingnut everyman who is somehow now a fucking role model for modern good ol' boys. Saw this enraging JTP interview quote on Huffington Post:


Softball-question-tossing Christian publication: In the last month, same-sex marriage has become legal in Iowa and Vermont. What do you think about same-sex marriage at a state level?

Joe The Plumber: At a state level, it's up to them. I don't want it to be a federal thing. I personally still think it's wrong. People don't understand the dictionary--it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we're supposed to do--what man and woman are for. Now, at the same time, we're supposed to love everybody and accept people, and preach against the sins. I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children. But at the same time, they're people, and they're going to do their thing.


My favorite part is when he reaches for an example of a word that is used to slander and attack a group of people and comes up with HONKY!!! A word which originated as a colloquialism for white men honking their car horns to pick up BLACK prostitutes!!!

My second favorite part is that this dude's REAL name is Samuel Wurzelbacher, but he now refers to himself (sometimes in the third person) as 'Joe' when speaking.
