(Toledo Blade)   Joe the Plumber's campaign tactics include long periods of silence broken only by "I hate politics" and "politics suck." Sounds like he's serious about this Congress thing   (toledoblade.com) divider line 155

Samuel Wurzelbacher: Helping democrats win since 2008
 
2012-09-20 03:20:27 PM  

markfara: Bondith: HotWingConspiracy: cars suck, I hate them with a passion. Only reason I'm involved in it is I like driving and I like gasoline," said Mr. Wurzelbacher, 38, a resident of Springfield Township.

Applying to med school:
"Quite frankly, medicine sucks, I hate them it a passion. Only reason I'm involved in it is I like labcoats and I like cadavers," said Mr. Wurzelbacher, 38, a resident of Springfield Township 

/come on, people, we can make this a thing

Being a male escort:
"Quite frankly, screwing lonely old women sucks. I hate them with a passion. The only reason I'm involved in it is that I like the smell of Aqua-Net and I kind of like it when my tool gets chafed." said Mr. Warblegarble, 38, a resident of Springfield Township.


To tell you the truth, being a male escort I don't think you will have to worry about servicing old women very much, or women for that matter, for the most part.

Oh he likes politics. It's having to tell the truth accurately that he hates.

trotsky: Don't worry. Marcy Kaptur is the senior ranking female House Rep. She campaigns very well


This is probably why the GOP set Joe the Plumber up to run in that district. They knew who ever they ran would lose so the made Wurzelbacher the sacrificial lamb.

"Quite frankly, this thing sucks, I hate it with a passion. Only reason I'm involved in it is I like loofahs and we'll do it live," said Mr. O'Reilly, 63.

cefm: So what do the poll numbers put him at now? 60-40 up in a (R)etarded district?


Don't have any numbers on hand but he's running in a solid blue district against an incumbent who's held the seat for almost 30 years.

So he never had a chance from the start and this is just a desperate last-ditch effort for him to squeeze out any remaining seconds from his 15 minutes, which expired over 3 years ago.
 
2012-09-20 03:41:36 PM  
I guess he assumed his 15 minutes had run out four years ago and he looked at the possibility of paying himself $5K per month out of the campaign treasury.
 
2012-09-20 03:41:57 PM  
So is this how a meme is born?

Lucas County Republicans probably recruited him to run. He should have known from the start that this was an uphill battle, with the hill being the size of K2. He's from Holland, Oh for the love of Tyr, so he should have known he would get little support and have little chance. Then again, this genius probably thought that he could ride the 2010 Tea Tard wave into power. The puppy mill smells must have impacted his ability to think.

"Quite frankly, playing music sucks. I hate it with a passion. The only reason I'm involved in it is that I like Nickelback and I kind of like Limp Bizkit." said Mr. "Joe" the "Plumber", 38, a resident of Springfield Township.

"Quite frankly, lots of dogs sucks. I hate it with a passion. The only reason I'm involved in it is that I like potatoes and I kind of like chargin mah lazor." said a man who identified himself only as "Definitely Not Sarah Palin's Sex Doll", 38, a resident of Springfield Township.

markfara: I watched this joker on the tube one day. His pitch was that he wasn't really all that knowledgeable, but that he was a plumber, so he knew how to fix things. And that's what our government needs right now. So we should hope he wins.


You know who else called in the plumbers to fix things?

"I'm not talking about defending illegal immigrants as her party has done time and time again. I think I'm very much on the record as wanting to protect America and America's interests. All of your sanctuary cities are liberally controlled, Democratically controlled. Is she working on the interests of Americans or illegal immigrants?" Mr. Wurzelbacher said.

Fact: No Mexican person has ever stepped foot in Ohio.

Yeah, if those lazy-ass voters want to know who you are or what your positions are, let them come to you. Entitled little pricks, who do they think they are to demand that you campaign for them?

Could it be that the Ohio Democratic Party Chair said "Wait. This might work. What if we throw up a bogus Republican candidate who is a moron, who pisses people off and doesn't really give a flying shiat. I know a guy who'll do it for a couple thousand bucks. Whaddya say?"

Heh. I have no idea why this guy even considered going up against Kaptur, one of the longest serving members of Congress. The Democrats have been in power here for well over 30 years and regardless if times are good or bad they vote Democrat. It's a very weird district. They vote against equal marriage and for Obama. Today I had lunch at Tony Packo's and overheard three "N-word" jokes and one spic joke from Democrats. Hell, back when the primaries were winding down last time they were literally wringing their hands over having to chose between a woman and a negro. Weird place is the 9th Ohio district.

Fun Fact: Toledo's Latino population is not that big. However the GOP voting rural areas employee migrant workers from Texas by the hundreds, many of whom were quite possibly illegal. Funny how that works.

Comparing this imbecile to G. Gordon Liddy is pretty apt: a weirdo who's hubris matches his baldness. Nixon looks competent and able compared to these clowns.

9 is a blue collar working class Democrat district, that's why. We're blue to the core in just about every way. I agree, it is kinda weird but once you know your neighbors, its easy.

Singular or plural - pick one. And since he's talking about the singular concept of politics, that shouldn't be too hard.
