Nice try Fox News.
Out of all the bizarre election stunts Fox news has pulled, Joe the Plumber has to be the most funniest.
Here was this working man, one of us, just trying to get ahead by buying his own plumbing business, he went up to Obama and told him, that his tax policy will mean he wont be able to afford it.
Well que Fox News to jump in and start a spinning, more so than O'Rielly when he is home along with a certain type of sandwich.
According to our fair and balanced friends at Fox News, this is a game changer, this will turn the election on its head, this will turn the average voter away from Obama and to McCain, thus McCain will win the election.
You see, Joe the public, is the ordinary working man, who justs wants a break and all of the USA can relate to him, if Joe the plumber says he voting for someone, then that who America is voting for, hes a hero, just trying to get ahead, no thanks to those tax and spend Democrats.
Despite giving this guy ample air time, Fox news has lined up more interviews with him, praising him, well I'm afraid Fox and the GOP, this is the worst October surprise ever, it ain't working at all.
You see Joe the plumber is not a Plumber, of course the GOP won't admit that.
Joe actually has family ties to high ranking members of the GOP, he is also originally from Alaska, are you getting my drift yet???
Basically, Joe is a plant, that the GOP and Fox are going to use, there is no way Karl Rove is behind this , he wouldn't come up with anything so stupid. They are going blast the media with him, telling us he speaks the truth and somewhere along the line, he will say with a tear in his eye, that he is voting for McCain.
If the GOP and Fox News think this is going to work, then I'm ashamed of them as human beings, for thinking so low of the American public, surly people aren't that stupid?, or having just watched Neil Cavuto, maybe they are?
