Here’s jolly CNN anchor Rick Sanchez asking “Fast” Joe the Plumber a buncha questions he’s already been asked several times a day since he became the McCain campaign’s raison d’être. Talkin’ about taxes. Then, around 3:40, Sanchez abruptly lists every example of how Joe the Plumber is a lying fraud and a dick. He also makes fun of Joe for being poor on numerous occasions.
Joe is like, “eat a bag of dicks, brother,” the end.
Sanchez is one slick bastard, but why is it that in all of these tax chats with a random plumber from Ohio, not a single anchor or reporter can tell dumb Joe that we already have a progressive tax system, and the debate is about tweaks? This simple fact would efficiently shoot down someone who argues that Obama is inventing the progressive tax system.
