Tea Party Purity

Sam Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, is mad at John McCain:

“McCain was trying to use me,” Wurzelbacher said, according to public radio correspondent Scott Detrow. “I happened to be the face of middle Americans. It was a ploy.”

“I don’t owe him s—,” Wurzelbacher continued. “He really screwed my life up, is how I look at it.”

In fact, Wurzelbacher’s dislike for McCain is so strong that he no longer supports Sarah Palin simply because Palin will campaign for McCain’s re-election.

I return to my assertions: that Wurzelbacher’s on-camera face-to-face with candidate Obama was staged; that his pretext for the conversation was remarkably untrue; that he has, in fact, received a tax cut from the president; and that the Teabag Terror will dissolve into a kind of televangelism.

As for Sam: sorry, your fifteen minutes are up.

    If Sam had any brains, he would have been able to figure that out from the get-go.
