Remember Joe D Plumber? Yeah, I know, his 15 minutes were up 2,102,400 minutes ago but he just steadfastly refuses to go away. He’s running for congress in Ohio’s ninth congressional district, a district that was gerrymandered by Republicans in 2010. The move allowed Republicans to do through redistricting what they could not do at the ballot box, which was to get rid of Democrat Dennis Kucinich, one of the most consistently liberal members of congress.
Joe D Plumber is running against Democrat Marcy Kaptur, who beat Kucinich in the primary once portions of their two districts were combined.
Joe just put out his first campaign ad, a parody of the PC versus Mac ads only this time — are you ready for some hijinks? — it’s liberal versus conservative. Let’s take a look.
Ouch! Joe, you have accurately and fairly summarized my views as a liberal and in so doing have hoisted me with my own petard. Touché.
It’s a bit odd that Joe comes perilously close in this ad to recognizing the government’s right to collect taxes. Didn’t he get the Teabagger memo that taxes = socialism? Also, he should learn how to turn off the comments at YouTube — people there are not being kind and gentle.
