Meghan McCain: Joe the Plumber's a dumbass...

...and since my father said "You're all 'Joe the Plumbers,'" you're all dumbasses too...

In an article from The New Republic, Jamie Kirchick profiles Meghan McCain for an article in OUT magazine, a GLB"t" publication, and discusses her rapid ascension in the punditocracy, by taking on more prominent conservatives, and much like her father, attempting to liberalize the Republican Party and the conservative movement. Samuel Wurzelbacher, or as he's more commonly known, "Joe the Plumber," recently gave an interview to the evangelical magazine, Christianity Today where the question of "same-sex marriage" was asked. Joe's response, or what got Jamie's knickers all knotted up, was Wurzelbacher's belief that having teh ghey is wrong, but he loves the sinner and hates the sin. He has friends who have teh ghey, but is not inclined to have his children exposed to them, and he stated his gay friends understand that (I also think that Joe's gay friends don't view him as 'homophobic,' either...).

To this, Meghan McCain replied "Joe the Plumber -- you can quote me -- is a dumbass. He should stick to plumbing." It's odd she won't comment on Sarah Palin publicly. Before you get the idea that liberals are embracing the bravado of Meghan, some of them see her for the political opportunist she is. Between liberal's thinking aloud about Wurzelbacher's sexuality (they think that all people who oppose "gay" rights are closet homosexuals, but they slam the Right for bringing up old arguments), many of the commenters at TP, (again, not something you need to wipe their posts with) point to McCain's appearance on Real Time with Bill Maher as evidence that the girl's in over her head (and I tend to agree with them...). So much for calling other people "dumbasses..."

Meghan McCain has to learn the lesson that Cindy Sheehan, Scott Ritter, Richard Clarke, Scott McClellan, Valerie Plame, and Joe Wilson had to learn the hard way. They were tools of the Left when they wanted to score points against the Right. They still want to maintain relevance by saying things about their fellow righties, or Amuricans, and hope to get media time. They haven't learned their five minutes of fame are up, the Left has moved on. Meghan needs to reread and understand the story of Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Christ for 30 pieces of silver. He no longer had the trust of his allies in Christ's discipleship, and he lost trust with the Roman authorities, because they rightly deduced that if a man is willing to sell out his principles for 15 minutes of media time, there will be no price too high to stop him from doing it in the future. No one likes a stoolie...

As far as her belief that the GOP needs to get progressive on a few issues, she's not totally off base. I believe the GOP can do a great service to the GLB"t" community by reminding gays, lesbians, bisexuals and the "transgendered" that free market principles, smaller government, lower taxes, etc. is better for our community than Democratic positions. The GOP can fight against the Democratic label that Republicans are "anti-immigration," by celebrating the sacrifices immigrants have made on behalf of Amurica, but say that opposing illegal immigration is essential to our national security. They don't need to try and convince people like Rachel Madcow or Keith Olberdouche, because they'll never be convinced. They can use the new media to get their message out.

Have a great day...

  1. I think many Americans are naturally apprehensive of the sudden volume of activity, politicians supposedly enacting amendments to strengthen our immigration laws? But I suspect this is the lull before the storm, which they will throw into the bubbling cauldron of issues, like health care and cap and trade? Immigration reform is the toxic sediment rising to the surface of the pool. We cannot blame President Bush for the immigration debacle completely, nor Clinton as this complete and utter disregard for border enforcement, has been ignored long before any of these administrations. Illegal immigration really became finally a damaging problem to the United States after the CAFTA treaty. Small farmers in Mexico lost their livelihood, when the giant agricultural consortium's moved in. The (CFR) Council of foreign relations is a signature to an agenda, no borders between the US, Mexico and Canada.

    Promoted by the globalists in the (EU) European Union whose planned agenda was the open border movement? Europe has suddenly woken up to the mass immigration which has become a scourge, which is just now being recorded with an adverse impact. The indigenous people have found themselves prioritized into a second class citizenship. In America this is becoming de-javu, as an Americans are hounded by debt collectors and bankruptcy, while illegal immigrants pay nothing for health care services. But then illegal immigrant families cannot be truly blamed for low income services, as they have been drawn across the borders, from other lands by exploiting employers who pay nothing for there settlement here. That remains the burden of the gullible American taxpayer.

    Washington has absolutely ignored the millions of foreign laborers and families, who have arrived, now they have no choice but to exact punishment on the US taxpayer by legalizing those who are here. If their immigration reform is just a small fine, learn English and submit to a FBI background check, this will truly unfair to those sincere immigrants who wait for working visas in their country of residence. This to me is AMNESTY--by any other name. This goes against the essence of the US Constitution and our Rule of Law. It seems like Sen. Schumer, Reid, Speaker Pelosi adhere to our laws, when it suits them? The Democratic leadership de-funded E-Verify a while back, but the angry ire of voters appalled by the weakening of immigration laws, fired back with countless phone calls. We can now do the same with AMNESTY. How many realize the damage to our economy, by giving citizenship to over 20 plus foreign nationals in retirement benefits. Those legalized can be to our nation all their family members, known as chain migration.

    Outside of complimentary legalization for all those people--mostly poorly educated, unskilled will be competition with US workers of the same status. It makes no any sense to process these people who pay little or no taxes, when we are looking at 11 percent jobless Americans. We can start deporting all these illegal families, the criminals by implementing permanent E-Verify. Not just for Federal Contractors but everybody as a mandatory law. Discrepancies will be dealt with at the Social Security offices. NO MATCH LETTERS--is a supplementary workplace law that shouldn't be rescinded? Don't be misinformed by the pro-illegal immigrant organizations. Call and demand a permanent, mandated E-Verify and NO MORE AMNESTIES! The1986 IMMIGRATION REFORM BILL DIDN'T WORK--NOR WILL THIS? It will take time, but enforced E-Verify with all its updates will remove illegal workers from the office, factory floor. Call your Senator or Congressman 202-224-3121

    ATTENTION! Because of the massive payments to illegal immigrant benefits in California, their is now a petition to halt this travesty. Google--TAXPAYER REVOLUTION. Very few newspapers will mention this activist petition. For all the facts about OVERPOPULATION: CAPSWEB, NUMBERSUSA, FAIR & AMERICAN PATROL
