I think we can all safely say that Joe the Plumber has joined Cher and the cockroaches as the only things that will survive a nuclear holocaust. Hopefully, this recent news that 11 people “wandered in” for his book signings will be evidence enough that he should just disappear into a dark hole. To wit, this splendid event:
The only heat generated by Joe’s appearance last night came when a young man named Jabari Zakiya recounted great moments in American racism (slavery, annihilation of Native Americans, segregation, etc.) and asked Wurzelbacher if the “hegemony” of the white man in America is “doomed” now that five states and the District of Columbia have majority minority populations.
Joe replied that he believes “our American heritage is being torn apart” by flag burners, critics of the military, and those who mock Christian values. He expressed his admiration for patriotic immigrants, and said he dislikes terms like African American and Asian American (“We’re all Americans,” he said). For some reason, he concluded by saying, “America has always been a kick-butt, take-names kind of country.”
Wow. Such an ass clown.
The event was scheduled to last three hours, but ended after 55 minutes, with Joe having sold a total of five books.
