Monday, monday, cant trust that day
Monday, monday, sometimes it just turns out that way

Stephen Shore, 'Andy Warhol, Sam Green, Marcel Duchamp, Cordier Ekstrom Gallery', 1965

* Top ten conservative idiots. excerpt:

5. "Joe The Plumber is apparently still hanging around book stores and GOP meetings looking for work. Wasn't he supposed to be buying his boss's plumbing business? I guess he's having too much fun pretending to be a celebrity. Maybe we should start calling him Joe "Hollywood" The Plumber.

Anyway, Joe spoke to a group of conservatives in Wassau, WI last week and wowed them with his knowledge of history and politics. According to the Wassau Daily Herald:
Referring to the Constitution as "almost like the Bible," Wurzelbacher said of the Founding Fathers: "They knew socialism doesn't work. They knew communism doesn't work."
Well done Joe! Just one problem...

The Constitution predates the origins of socialism by nearly 100 years.

At the same meeting, The Plumber complained that tea-baggers are unfairly labeled as "extremists."
"I'm here for one reason and one reason only: It's 'I love America,'" Wurzelbacher told the crowd. "Mainstream media wants to paint us as a bunch of extremists, right? We're in search of liberty and our freedoms. What's so extreme about that?" (...)

"Let me give you another extremist view, 'In God We Trust,'" he said to wild applause. "Say that too loud in some parts of America and you will be shot. It's terrible."
I know, right? Won't somebody think of all those poor Americans who live under the constant threat of physical violence just because they go to a Christian church. You know they can't go out on a Sunday morning without their body armor.

Joe capped off his performance by demonstrating why he and his conservative buddies aren't a bunch of extremists.

Referring to Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., more than once, Wurzelbacher asked, "Why hasn't he been strung up?"
