As you know, the functionally illiterate Samuel Wurzelbacher (aka Joe the Plumber) is a hankerin' to represent Ohio's 9th Congressional District. He's running against Democrat Marcy Kaptur, appealing to GOP "values" with the Tea Party's tired platform of Guns, Gays, and God. In the following campaign video, Wurzelbacher claims, ludicrously, that gun control was responsible for the Holocaust. Next to that is an amusing clip in which the Republican gets pressed about his homophobia by CNN's Zoraida Sambolin. (He insists he wouldn't allow his kids to go anywhere near those "homoshexual" queers. Jimmy LaSalvia of the gay conservative group GOProud, ever self-loathing, rushed to Wurzelbacher's defense.)
The New York Observer contacted a campaign spokesperson about the politician's Holocaust remarks. The spokesperson declared that Wurzelbacher was "a student of history." (Snort.) Then the plumber's helper suggested that gun control may also have caused slavery in the Deep South. (Double snort.)
Now I realize any fool can run for public office - but do Ohioans really want Joe/Samuel speaking for them?
