That Joe the Plumber Idiot Has A Black Friend Now

by Jeff Wattrick

Dung-pile peasant turned right-wing avatar Sam Wurzelbacher, who likes to pretend his name is Joe and also likes to pretend he is a plumber, has a black friend! She’s really likes Sam the Unemployable Guy Who Pretended To Be A Plumber and she’s also a big fan of President Obama. Probably, because she’s a black! That’s what makes her friendship with Sam so remarkable.

Sam’s black friend is named “Mother Georgia,” which doesn’t sound like an actual name so much as one of those condescending nicknames white people gave to their African-American nannies in movies featuring Emma Stone. But let’s take Sam, who pretends his name is Joe, at his word that Mother Georgia’s real name is actually Mother Georgia.

Anyways, Sam and Mother Georgia are real good friends even though they are of different races and she voted for the current president whereas Sam believes Obama wants to take away our guns so he can restart the Armenian genocide. It’s just one of those normal heartland differences of opinion between real ‘Mericans that John Mellencamp sings about.

Bravo, Sam Wurzelbacher. You have exactly one acquaintance that does not perfectly share your background and worldview. Truly, Dr. King’s dream has, at long last, been fulfilled.

[Sam Wurzelbacher for Congress]

He truly is America's greatest hero.

Crank_Tango July 3, 2012 at 5:46 pm

Believe it or not, he's walking sans hair…

Antispandex July 3, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Fuck yeah!

TribecaMike July 3, 2012 at 8:58 pm

Indeed, he's our very own Prometheus, only he stole the secret of fire to heat up his anal beads.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 10:30 pm

For values of h = z.

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:30 pm

America's Greatest Hero: Joe the Plumber or Joe Walsh?

Heroically_Joe July 4, 2012 at 12:51 am

Ham, and cheese, on white-bread?

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 1:14 am

I like my heros a little more … vegetal.

Baconzgood July 3, 2012 at 4:38 pm

I have a feeling that this guy is a liar.

Fairtackle July 3, 2012 at 5:11 pm

He is a plumber and plumbers never lie.

Doktor Zoom July 3, 2012 at 5:13 pm

Please, no cracks about plumbers.

HogeyeGrex July 3, 2012 at 6:23 pm

Huhhuhhh.

Plumber crack.

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 10:10 pm

Is that the crack they lace with Drain-O?

Geminisunmars July 3, 2012 at 5:47 pm

He lies plumb?

Barb July 3, 2012 at 4:38 pm

The only true thing about "Joe the Plummer" is "the"

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 4:45 pm

And even that we're not so sure.

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 5:44 pm

That would require the ability to construct an article, which his journalism career shows to be a dicey proposition.

Neoyorquino July 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm

He could take a lesson from Smokey the Bear (who was both smokey, and, well, a bear). And, compared to Sam, Smokey the Bear was also on the far right slope of the bell curve when it came to IQ.

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:31 pm

As was Crow T. Robot.

johnnymeatworth July 3, 2012 at 6:49 pm

Oh, I don't know. He's sure plumbed some depths in his time.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 10:40 pm

At one point in my work life, I worked for a chip company that was acquired by Daimler-Benz (before it became Daimler-Chrysler-Clusterfuck or whatever it is now). At the time, D-B was not traded on the NYSE, because they had a sort of German Romantic approach to financial statements. It was all about the story-line, which was that they were profitable (and usually increasingly so) every single year. [In good years, they'd stash some of the profits on the balance sheet, for use in remaining profitable during not-so-good years].

It was commonly said that the only correct number in a Daimler -Benz annual report was the year.

Apparently Sam the Wurzelbacher shares that German Romantic mindset.

Dr_Zoidberg July 3, 2012 at 4:39 pm

I want to see her birth certificate.

hippie13 July 4, 2012 at 10:10 am

I want to see a plumbers license….and not one of those fake jobs issued by the secretary of state or some other commie front group.

Baconzgood July 3, 2012 at 4:41 pm

So his only qualifications for office is that he bum rushed the POTUS! Gotta love the GOP.

Crank_Tango July 3, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Or he is a skinhead with a german name who tried to keep a black guy from taking a job from a white guy. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, I guess.

DaniloTifoso July 3, 2012 at 4:42 pm

Who's on first?

GorzoTheMighty July 3, 2012 at 4:43 pm

WTF is this? Slow news day? Where is the buttsecks?

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 3, 2012 at 5:07 pm

You didn't watch the video, did you?

ManchuCandidate July 3, 2012 at 4:43 pm

It was either her, JJ "Kid Dyn-o-mite" Walker or Aunt Jemimah.

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Rerun libel!

MumbletyRadio July 3, 2012 at 5:17 pm
MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 5:14 pm

Sam the Dumber probably thought she *was* Aunt Jemimah. I'm surprised he didn't ask if she preferred being used on pancakes or waffles.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Looks more like a Mrs Butterworth guy, if you know what I mean…

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:33 pm

Are you referring to the guy who showed up at the Emergency Room to have a Mrs. Butterworth bottle removed from… a place where it shouldn't have been? Because we have no proof that he WASN'T Joe the Plumber.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:14 am

And it would be irresponsible NOT to speculate.

Dudleydidwrong July 3, 2012 at 5:25 pm

If Joe puts on black face he could pretend he was Uncle Ben and could sell rice door to door. That might be his first honest job.

coolhandnuke July 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm

Ah lerved Blind Melon Chitlin' but I'm'a go wit' Hot PP Jefferson heah.

coolhandnuke July 3, 2012 at 9:27 pm

"You can jump rope with that thing."

NYNYNYjr July 3, 2012 at 4:43 pm

I want to see everyone's birth certificate, and passport, and underwear.

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 4:44 pm

"Vote for 'Joe' if your kid played basketball with him when he was 13" doesn't seem like a winning campaign message, somehow. Can't put my finger on why, exactly.

SexySmurf July 3, 2012 at 4:45 pm

Mother Georgia’s real name is actually Mother Georgia.

That's funny because Not Joe the Not Plumber's real name is actually Mother Fucker.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:18 am

Yeah, I couldn't believe it either, but she says it herself on the video clip, and I'm not one to call a nice lady a liar.

Callyson July 3, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Reminds me of Sean Hannity titling one of his books "Let Freedom Ring." Uh, yeah, right…

OT: I'm heading off to Pennsylvania tomorrow for a family reunion and my dad's memorial service, so I probably won't be checking in on my favorite web site for the next few days too often (while I'm from Pittsburgh, the reunion will be in the "Alabama in the middle" part of the state so it's probably best that I STFU about anything remotely political.) But you all have a happy 4th!

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 5:01 pm

Happy Indy Day!

Lascauxcaveman July 3, 2012 at 5:25 pm

Stay drunk!

Callyson July 3, 2012 at 6:11 pm

Mission accomplished…for real…

Extemporanus July 3, 2012 at 5:36 pm

I'll fire an illegal bottle rocket at some red, white, & blue TruckNutz in your dad's memory, Callyson.

(And one in your memory, too, just in case you don't make it back from Pennsyltucky…)

Callyson July 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Aw, thanks!

anniegetyerfun July 3, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I didn't know that you had lost your dad. I'm sorry. I hope that the alcohol flows freely and that you are able not to punch anyone.

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 6:00 pm

… and also able to remain unpunched.

Callyson July 3, 2012 at 6:10 pm

Thanks…I believe alcohol will be available (wouldn't be one of my family functions without it) so I should be OK.

starfanglednut July 3, 2012 at 5:55 pm

Sorry 'bout your dad, Cally.

Callyson July 3, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Thanks…it actually happened last summer, but scheduling issues prevented us from having a service until now. I just hope I don't get too emotional.

starfanglednut July 3, 2012 at 8:25 pm

It's healthy to let some tears flow.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 6:57 pm

Have a good time, sweetie, and don't let them push you around. Come back soon! (Hugs Callyson) <— For good luck.

Callyson July 4, 2012 at 2:21 am

Thanks honey :-)

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 2:35 am

You're welcome, sweetie. Any time. I lost my Dad over a year ago, so if you want to commiserate, you know where to find me.

Glad you're doing OK.

Mittens Howell, III July 3, 2012 at 7:00 pm

Happy Real America Day!

fuflans July 3, 2012 at 8:39 pm

we will miss you!

may you have a memorial service worth remembering.

in the best of ways.

Callyson July 4, 2012 at 2:23 am

Thanks :-)

C_R_Eature July 3, 2012 at 9:11 pm

Oh, boy. Sorry to hear this and sorry for your loss.

Travel safe, stay sane, don't be afraid to cry but be sure to laugh.

See you soon.

Callyson July 4, 2012 at 2:22 am

Thanks–I think I'll be OK. Can't wait to see you all again soon also…

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 4:46 pm

Some of my best acquaintances are black!

Limeylizzie July 3, 2012 at 6:41 pm

I have had the sexual intercourse with black men.

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 8:20 pm

I've been with a few myself. Reports of their…presence have been greatly exaggerated.

Limeylizzie July 3, 2012 at 8:57 pm

All cats are grey at night.

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 8:51 pm

A good friend of mine just moved to Atlanta. I doubt it had to do with the proximity to CNN or coca-cola. Just sayin.

midnighttoker69 July 4, 2012 at 1:49 pm

Some of my closest friends know black people.

OzoneTom July 3, 2012 at 4:46 pm

This is outrag…

Mmmm, Emma Stone!

Antispandex July 3, 2012 at 4:47 pm

Well, the other day there was a story about how some black people are Republicans, so I guess anything could happen.

MumbletyRadio July 3, 2012 at 4:48 pm

John Mellencamp

So when Jesus left Birmingham Alabama for Mother Georgia it was because she'd gotten knocked up? Good, that song totes makes sense now. Also, Wurzelbacher has a face only a sad Americana-charlatan music-maker could love before aborting.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:22 am

Huh. That link takes me to a Wonkabout of 2009. But your description of John Mellencamp is so fucking dead-on that I am going to have to pinch it. I plead literary need.

MumbletyRadio July 5, 2012 at 6:51 pm

link.. Wonkabout…2009
GAH, I hate when intensedebate does that! For some reason, at times, it'll stick the wonkette.com/ ahead of the link I'm trying to place in there. It was a youtube of him* doing the song, oh well.

I do browse old threads even 2009 and earlier: since you mentioned it I NEED to share this with someone: Pithaugn recap'ing an item shared by Prommie that gives an interesting perspective on 'baggers and ignorant conservatives alike:
http://wonkette.com/411422/it-cannot-be-overstate

It's an interesting post too just seeing how Romney was viewed back then. If the link doesn't work I'll post the entire text in another reply, srsly, I am so smitten with the import of the comment.

*Kinda faking the Mellencamp hate there… I did take a liking to his "Human Wheels" album or parts of it… The title song includes the lyrics; "the dust to which this flesh shall return/ It is the ancient, dreaming dust of God" which took me by surprise with their near poetic quality. And "Help the light find my face" well I guess I'm just a sucker sometimes but I like it.

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 4:48 pm

Wasn't Mother Georgia the old black magic negro lady from Stephen King's The Stand?

Or maybe one of his other books; dude loves him the magic negro characters.

Fare la Volpe July 3, 2012 at 5:00 pm

Key & Peele have a great bit where the shoe-shinin' magical negroes duke it out Two Towers style for the soul of some needy white guy.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 5:17 pm

Keyes & Steele, did you say?

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 6:01 pm

Because of King, I read that as Dark Tower style for a second and thought, wait, Susannah is one of his only black characters who is definitely not a magic negro, but actually the most fully developed character in the series.

anniegetyerfun July 3, 2012 at 5:50 pm

I just read The Stand a couple of months ago, and seriously, I don't remember any of the names of any of the characters.

ETA: There WERE, like, 600 characters.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:00 pm

I take it that you're not a huge fan of Russian authors.

anniegetyerfun July 3, 2012 at 7:04 pm

War and Peace is a topic that can literally bring my marriage to the brink of divorce. I get bored with constant cross-referencing of characters and their long lineage (this is also making the Song of Fire and Ice series really hard to enjoy – that, and George RR Martin's serious poop fetish).

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:07 pm

Let me guess: Your spouse is an engineer (sw/hw, doesn't matter). My partner refuses to read anything literary, but has finally compromised and permits me to read Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Salman Rushdie, Pablo Neruda, and the like to him of an evening. In exchange, he reads me Dan Savage columns. Sigh.

starfanglednut July 3, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Suicide by train libel!

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:50 pm

Must we drag poor Anna into this again?

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:47 pm

the asshole guy from New York in the Stand was Larry Underwood. I remember because, although I thought his character was pretty well written, I thought "Larry Underwood" wasn't really ethnic enough for that kind of guy.
Stu Redman was the Tommy Lee Jones character.
Harold Lauder was the teenage Stephen King character.

emmelemm July 3, 2012 at 6:13 pm

Mother Abigail, I buhleeve, and it was the first thing I thought of upon reading this post.

Negropolis July 3, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Nah. I think Mother Georgia was that old, black magic negro in The Matrix trilogy.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I'm not really an oracle, but I did stay at a simulated Holiday Inn Express last night.

shortsandpants July 3, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Joe the Plumber (R) Azerbaijan

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 4:57 pm

The Azerbaijanis are not exactly well-known for their concern for the wellbeing of Armenians.

But then, Joe doesn't appear to have quite managed to correctly read the script provided him by Jean Schmidt.

Lascauxcaveman July 3, 2012 at 4:49 pm

If Alvin Green endorses him, this could turn into a real horserace.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 5:04 pm

Al Green is awesome, dude. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hsU6_eSG4k4

Lascauxcaveman July 3, 2012 at 5:28 pm

Sorry, I meant Alvin Greene.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 5:54 pm

Oh, yeah- he's the one who ran for the SC State House in 2011 & got 6 votes out of approx. 4000 cast… SC GOP "forgot" to rig those machines.

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 5:58 pm

Given that it was a primary, I think it's safe to say he'd have done a lot better had the GOP remembered.

Antispandex July 3, 2012 at 8:40 pm

Whoa…I love Al Greene.

MosesInvests July 3, 2012 at 10:20 pm

The Reverend Green will be glad to see you when you haven't got a prayer.

Joshua Norton July 3, 2012 at 4:49 pm

Sorry Joe, but the minimum of black friends required before you can claim bragging rights has officially been raised to 2.

Good luck with that.

Doktor Zoom July 3, 2012 at 5:20 pm

Colonel Cathcart is in charge of the Race Card, now?

Heroically_Joe July 3, 2012 at 4:49 pm

And some of my friends are assholes.

Lascauxcaveman July 3, 2012 at 5:29 pm

But I bet Joe's got ya beat in that category, too.

Geminisunmars July 3, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Present company excluded, I'm sure.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Do I know you?

rocktonsam July 3, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Joe the Dumber knows more Blahs than Walnuts does, probably.
And Mittinz also

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:04 pm

Walnuts has a n*****-baby, remember? At least that's what G.W. Bush and Karl Rove would like Southerners to believe. As for Mittens, I believe his software has a glitch in it that causes him to start singing weird songs when in the presence of Teh Blah. If you can call that singing.

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:51 pm

Do servants count?
Because Walnuts and Mitzi have several houses each; you figure out of that many houses, all of which have to have a staff, the pastry chef or the girl who comes in on Thursdays to do the bathrooms or *somebody* is prolly blah.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:30 am

Yes, but, you know, the Little Woman takes careof that stuff. Bet you money Mitt never makes eye contact with "the staff."

JustPixelz July 3, 2012 at 4:52 pm

Palin's movie is called "The Undefeated". Mitt's name is really Willard. The Repubicans call themselves the Grand Old Party, but they ain't grand, the Democratic Party is older and it's no party with them in charge.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:05 pm

IOW, you're saying Republicans … LIE?

OMG, how will I ever survive this terrifying news? Someone bring me my smelling-salts and a fainting couch, STAT.

TribecaMike July 3, 2012 at 9:10 pm

I missed Rock Hudson in that one.

LibertyLover July 3, 2012 at 4:56 pm

Playing the "some are my best friends are dot dot dot" card? Is that kinda desperate?

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 5:00 pm

He's playing the "I'm Republican so I believe Democrats are stupid enough to vote for the guy with someone saying they voted for Obama in a commercial without bothering to find out anything else at all about them" card.

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:52 pm

*announcer voice*
"We hired an actor to say it, so you know it's true"

sullivanst July 4, 2012 at 12:59 pm

"Remember, an actor couldn't say it if it wasn't true"

Goonemeritus July 3, 2012 at 4:58 pm

I’m sure I could be Joe’s friend; well it would be easier if he didn’t talk about politics or anything else for that matter. It would probably benefit the friendship if we had no contact at all. If we just followed these simple rules I’m sure we could be as close as peas and carrots.

Dudleydidwrong July 3, 2012 at 5:33 pm

If you were Joe's other friend (he only has one now) it would mean that you would be invited to all of the Republican parties, Mitt's intimate dinners, and be one of the people who creates Republican policy… No, on second thought, do fake plumbers have any social life at all?

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:11 pm

It probably involves a LOT of shit, Dudley.

DemmeFatale July 3, 2012 at 4:58 pm

Jeff:
The book is better than the movie.
(Still uncomfortable, though.)

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 4:59 pm

On this occasion of our Nation's birth we should recognize our hero, Joe The Plumber. Sure, his name isn't Joe and he can't unclog your drain, but he can show you how to convert your TV to digital and pretend to have a conversation with a black woman which apparently makes him qualified to run for US Congress. The Founding Fathers would be proud.

Hammiepants July 3, 2012 at 5:00 pm

"Mother Georgia" is actually a 6ft tall invisible black rabbit, right?

Doktor Zoom July 3, 2012 at 5:16 pm

"Why are you wearing that stupid Man suit?" –Frank

Lionel[redacted]Esq July 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Mr. Wizzybean Wurzelbacher should be careful. After all, John Roberts only has one black friend, and now he is America's and Freedom's greatest enemy according to most Conservative websites.

It can happen that quick if you get near their voodoo!

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 11:54 pm

"John Roberts only has one black friend"

Well, strictly speaking, I think Clarence is more of a co-worker than an actual friend.

barto July 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm

Meh, the Donald has more imaginary black friends under his combover than Samjoe will ever have.

RedneckMuslin July 3, 2012 at 8:26 pm

Arsenio libel!

CrunchyKnee July 3, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Sammie-Jo is a fraud and should feel ashamed. That is all.

MLite July 3, 2012 at 5:05 pm

Why does "Joe" hate Herman Cain?

RedneckMuslin July 3, 2012 at 8:27 pm

Because he's a ni.. he doesn't like pizza?

Rotundo_ July 3, 2012 at 5:06 pm

It's either politics or fast food for Sammy, and I think he would hurt himself and who knows how many others working a deep fryer. Maybe this perpetual candidate thing is actually a means to keep conservatives with limited ability to function fed and clothed.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:12 pm

Surely the sources of their funds are old enough to keel over daid by now?

PubOption July 3, 2012 at 5:06 pm

Mother Georgia sounds like a nun, so obviously she must be a socialist.

Billmatic July 3, 2012 at 5:07 pm

I don't have any conservative friends. All of my friends are soulless, horrible liberals who make jokes at the expense of religion.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:13 pm

Thank you. (Proudly signs on to list of Billmatic's friends)

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 5:08 pm

Poor Mother Georgia, she probably thought when she called Joe that he was an actual plumber that she found on Angie's List because her sink is backed up. Instead she got stuck with Sam and his video camera.

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 5:48 pm

And once a not-plumber infestation takes over your house, it's almost impossible to get rid of it; she just better make sure she gets a really good exterminator.

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 6:07 pm

I heard that Todd Palin moonlights as Bob the Exterminator.

SorosBot July 3, 2012 at 6:21 pm

Oh now a Palin infestation is impossible to get rid of, they breed far too rapidly to stop, the only way to deal with them is to burn the house to the ground; I hope she doesn't call him!

coolhandnuke July 3, 2012 at 5:11 pm

Joe's other "friends" are all named Fadderland Alabama.

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 8:56 pm

Oh, did "Sweet Home" change his name?

larrykat July 3, 2012 at 5:13 pm

I think its good that Father Ignorant Dipshit has a colored friend.

tessiee July 3, 2012 at 8:59 pm

Some of The Cullud are very clean and articulate.

GhostBuggy July 3, 2012 at 5:18 pm

I remember how, when I was a young boy, the family would gather 'round the Wurzelbacher as Mother Georgia would play a few tunes and we'd all sing along. It was simpler then. There were concerts in the park. People seemed to laugh more then…

His name sounds like an organ manufacturer, is what I'm saying here.

MissTaken July 3, 2012 at 5:38 pm

I like to think of Sam as a helping of pig organ soup

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:15 pm

It's actually really delicious.

sullivanst July 3, 2012 at 5:52 pm

Jukebox libel!

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:14 pm

Yeah, and what kind of organ, we don't want to know.

starfanglednut July 3, 2012 at 8:32 pm

The more pertinent question is: Did the organ have tulips on it?

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 11:02 pm

Ah, the Mighty Wurzelbacher! Back in the days when pipes were pipes, organs were organs, tubes were tubes, and sleazeball grifters had to work county fairs to make a living.

GhostBuggy July 3, 2012 at 5:21 pm

"Look, I don't know what this cameraman is doing here, but my sink is really stopped up, so if you could stop yammering and go look at it…"

OneYieldRegular July 3, 2012 at 5:21 pm

You'd think after Watergate that the Republican Party might try to distance itself from anything with the word "plumber" in it.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 7:15 pm

That's because YOU WOULD think; and they WOULDN'T.

flamingpdog July 3, 2012 at 7:37 pm

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe one of those long-ago plumbers has a popular (with Rethugliklans) radio talk show where he tells you how to make sure you kill a cop if you're going to shoot at him.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:17 pm

Is THAT right? I wonder how the po-pos feel about THAT?

Joe The Whirling Wurzelbacher has a Black friend? Yeah, sure, and he's also married to Lene Lovich.

So Joe will be jive-talkin his way to the GOP convention this fall. Sure hope he can hip-hop to the sounds of Ted Nugent on the convention floor.

This friendship narrative is nonsense. Joe dropped by Mother Georgia's place to warn her that putting an Obama political yard sign next to your chimney is a fire waiting to happen especially in the middle of a hot summer …and he is an expert on chimneys, global warming and fires being a professional plumber.

From the news blogs

Any Griffith, 1926-2012

Actor Any Griffith, best know as Sheriff Andy Taylor from the "Andy Griffith Show," has died at age 86.

One of the complaints about "The Andy Griffith Show" was the lack of non-white characters. Andy Griffith said that they wanted to have them on the show but CBS didn't think it was a good idea.
It makes sense considering how popular the show was in certain areas of the country that wouldn't like having some Negroes show up in Mayberry.

flamingpdog July 4, 2012 at 12:02 am

I dunno, it might have been a good idea not to have any blahs on the show, considering that everyone on that show but Andy was a complete moron. Having any culluheds on the show might have set race relations back another 20 years.

The "Wurzelbacker" was a voguish position in 1920s American football. The Wurzelbacker's on-field function was to holler out inanities at opposing Quarterbacks pre-snap in hopes of annoying and distracting the Offense. Players who could be punched, smacked and kicked about the head repeatedly while remaining conscious were prized as starting Wurzelbackers, since cognitive ability was usually superfluous to the assignment.

BTW, I just viewed the commercial, and I was surprised to see Mother Georgia kept her dignity up to a point by not throwing the president under the bus as you'd expect from these kind of ploys. I can not believe that Sam has a campaign smart enough to know that bashing Obama isn't good politics, but it seems that this is the case.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:07 am

I doubt it has anything to do with Sam's smarts. I suspect that lovely lady is the only person he knows who isn't blindingly white. Interestingly, he didn't choose to interview her son, his childhood playmate. I suspect the only reason the President *wasn't* trashed is that that lady is too polite, nice, well-brought up, and firmly in POTUS' camp for her to stoop so low.

I admit to loving War and Peace (and Game of Thrones, for that matter- my husband just had to put up with a dinner-table conversation between me and my son on that topic). However, I have an additional admission to make on W&P- I skip the long disquisitions on the nature of History- me! a teacher of history!, and just enjoy the stoooory. Meanwhile, my husband prefers Asterix comics- rereads them again and again.

MittBorg July 3, 2012 at 8:13 pm

Shocking! Simply SHOCKING!

I used to do that in my yoof, and then I would periodically reread an old favourite and find that my opinion of the book had changed completely, whether due to reading the formerly omitted sections, or the wonders of age and brain rot/development.

BoatOfVelociraptors July 3, 2012 at 9:02 pm

Dude, you don't need paper, you need an RSA style hash. Possibly on paper. If the hash (the computation that protects your credit card number and transactions) does not add up, you have a case. Lawyers can't fight math.

sbj1964 July 3, 2012 at 9:08 pm

scvirginia July 3, 2012 at 9:29 pm

Am increasingly convinced that no systems are foolproof- if the powers that be want to rig an election, it will happen. It seems like it would be easier to rig an election electronically, though, since far fewer people need to be in on the secret.

Not sure how RSA style hash by itself will protect my vote, though- you got a plan?

sullivanst July 4, 2012 at 12:52 pm

Two things here.

First, I'm pretty sure there are some of the more successful lawyers who'd disagree with you.

Second, an RSA hash of what exactly? You can't hash the running total because it's running, and in the case of the machines in question, you can't hash the individual votes because there's simply no stored record of them to hash.

Also, a major part of the purpose of a cryptographic hash is the intent to be able to prove that something hasn't changed while also being unable to recreate the original from the hash – in other words, you can't do a recount from hashes, the best you'd be able to prove is that someone's messed with the count, but you wouldn't know what the correct count was and would be left with a horrible choice between throwing away everyone's vote, or certifying a result you had proven was tampered with (absent new legislation allowing a revote).

I suppose at least a hash of the final total would tell you that noone's messed with the count after it's recorded, but it wouldn't confirm that noone's messed with the machine so that it records votes and/or the count wrong during the day.

bobbert July 3, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Ultimately, you have to assume that there are some people in the vote processing business who are honest. Without that, any mechanism can be defeated.

But, given a few honest people, the way a hash would work is:

1. You vote

2. Your entire vote selection is securely hashed (maybe you are allowed to provide some personally selected content — non-private info selected by you).

3. You get a copy of the hash value.

4. After your vote is counted, the ballot is re-hashed with the same. All the re-hashed values from your precinct are posted online.

5. You do a search to make sure your hash value appears on the list. If not, you complain that your vote is missing.

Clearly not perfect, but again, I'm assuming that most of the folks involved are at least non-malicious.

TribecaMike July 3, 2012 at 11:22 pm

No, no, and furthermore no.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:27 am

Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.

scvirginia July 4, 2012 at 12:57 am

I had a reasonably high opinion of our voting system until the Alvin Greene fiasco set me straight.

Given that perfection isn't an option, I'd prefer a system that would require many people to get their hands dirty in order to rig an election. I've worked elections & know that most people are committed to clean elections- as you say, the vast majority are not malicious.

So a paper trail, a hash value trail- any system that would need a LOT of conspirators to turn the election- I'm not too picky how it's done, but our current system is too easy to fix, & not just in SC.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 12:35 am

Sounds as if you might have some reservations.

scvirginia July 4, 2012 at 1:03 am

This is why I'm amused by conspiracy theories, but don't usually give 'em much cred. People just aren't smart enough to pull that shit off without a hitch.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 1:13 am

Not to mention the fact that every single person walking around in this world has their own interest at heart, and a multiplicity of reasons for doing what you want them to do. Which is why conspiracies often fall apart in the beginning stages. Someone takes exception to someone else's character, haircut, or comments, and whammo, scalammo, everybody gets to cool their heels in jail.

scvirginia July 4, 2012 at 1:33 am

True dat. It may be fairly easy to find, say, 5 people whose interests coincide. Will all of them be comfortable with a little rule-bending? Will they all be smart enough to understand how the plan is s'posed to work? Then are they able to work in coordination in a disciplined manner? And then can they keep their mouths shut?

I'm sure that it happens on occasion, but these supposedly vast international conspiracies? It's enough to make a cat laugh…

sullivanst July 4, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Not to mention it appears that at least 95% of all people in America willing to participate in a conspiracy are either FBI agents or FBI informants.

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 1:51 am

It's wonderful, working over the birfers, for example. The kind of conspiracy that would be required to create candidate (now POTUS) Barack Obama would have involved multiple employees of multiple governments of multiple nations. Schools, customs officials, hospitals, landlords, colleges, hell, bus and cab drivers — would all have to be involved on some level. Yet, in fifty years, not a single person has managed to provide convincing evidence of the birfers' claims. And it really, really bothers them to be reminded of it.

scvirginia July 4, 2012 at 1:57 am

Those time machines are not cheap, either. (Er, not that I would know, of course…)

MittBorg July 4, 2012 at 2:12 am

Of course. Have you heard the one about Obama on Mars? DARPA sent him there with a bunch of other students, and that's how they got access to the time machine.

sullivanst July 4, 2012 at 12:58 pm
