As if we needed any more proof
Well now no one is safe.
It seems that because Joe Wurzelbacher aka "Joe the Plumber" has caused an illumination into his Lordship Barack Obama's penchant for redistribution of wealth, the press is now apparently investigating him.
From the Politico:
The Toledo Blade is reporting that Joe the Plumber is actually not licensed. But that,combined with his apparent tax lien, isn't lessening McCain's ardor.
He said in an interview with Fox's Carl Cameron today that he hoped to hook up with the instantly famous Ohioan soon.
"I'm probably going to call him this morning," McCain said. "I thought he would probably be up late. I heard that his --- that his phone lines were pretty well flooded. But I think we're going to be spending some time together."
What the hell does the staus of his license got to do with the question at hand that Obama's tax plan will hurt middle class businessmen like Joe?
We definitely need a free press - I'd never say anything different.
Unfortunately, far too many in the media have used the free press clause of the first amendment to absolve themselves of the obligation of acting responsibly, to say nothing about acting honorably.
