PLEASE put down the mic, Joe.  Seriously.  We don't want to hear it.

PLEASE put down the mic, Joe. Seriously.

Republicans are digging in their heels about the stimulus plan.  They are taking shots at the tax woes of Democratic political appointees.  They are indulging in a little political copycat strategy with the recent appointment of the first black chairman of the Republican National Committee, Michael Steele.  And they are seeking economic advice from…Joe the Plumber?

That’s right, folks.  Sam Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the (unlicensed) Plumber,” “Joe the Gaza War Correspondent,” “Joe the Country Singer,” and “Joe the Author with a Ghostwriter” (yup, he already has a book), is in Washington this week to offer his thoughts on the economic stimulus plan to GOP Congressional aides.

Does anybody else feel like they are in the middle of a big historical punch line?

I don’t care about JtP, but a bigger punch line was electing a grossly underexperienced candidate to office.

Thanks for the comment. I know how you must feel; I felt the same sense of despair when George W. Bush took office in 2001.

Of course, some of my worst nightmares came true during his Administration; likely some of yours will come true during Obama’s.
It all comes down to our political ideologies, I guess.

You may be right about Obama’s inexperience–but I do place some faith in his intelligence, and intellectual curiosity. Will this ultimately save us? I don’t know. But I am eager to try a different version of leadership than the one Bush established.
