One of the seventy-thousand reasons John McCain has a 1% chance of winning the presidency is a dumb tool who called himself “Joe the Plumber” and hoped to get fame and free welfare money as a result of telling a dumb lie to Barack Obama, when Barack Obama was campaigning in this man’s neighborhood. Because he was a creepy looking mouth-breather who didn’t pay his own bills and would get a tax cut under Obama and whose wife had left him to a life of unlicensed work at some other guy’s plumbing business, the McCain campaign naturally decided — in the last weeks of a tightening race — to throw everything behind this unappealing character who represented nothing. And now Joe the Plumber’s trying to vote illegally, too!
Wonkette operative “Tribe” reports from Ohio:
I’m an Obama inside observer in Toledo. Rumor has it, heard from other observers, that Joe the Plumber attempted to cast a ballot in the wrong precinct. Rumor also has it that he was stopped by a City of Toledo police officer in the last few days for speeding … but Joe the Plumber insisted on the officer contacting the officer’s supervisor to let him know “who he was giving a ticket to.”
UPDATE: The Toledo Blade and Toledo police confirm the speeding part. This guy is such a dumb cunt!
