Even Plumbers are Leaving the GOP

Hole-y smokes! Who's going to clean up their shit for them? I see a future for you, Mr. Cantor.

Just up on the Huff Post: Joe the Plumber is leaving the GOP according to an upcoming interview being published in Time.

I hope he doesn't try to join us lefties (*gag*).

I also have to share this gem from The Fireside Post.

A quote from it:
"The GOP base has no concept of education. Joe the Plumber has no concept of literature, of the humanities, of history, of geography, of international relations, of natural science, of the Universe, or of science in general - Everything that is wrong with America. And the Republican Party owns this label. The leaders of the Republican Party of the past thirty years sold the soul of the Grand Old Party for fanatically ignorant support at the polls."

And this:
"Like it or not, Governor Palin, Mike Huckabee, Karl Rove, and George Bush — the Bible does not take precedence over our Constitution. Actually, the Constitution protects the right to worship however one chooses - and it grants that right to all people of our country, not just the religious fanatics. The Constitution even grants the right to avoid worship all together if one so desires. The United States is not a theocracy - is not governed by religion. The United States is a country of law."

Smiling and grinning and even laughing a bit over here.

Good riddance Joe. They must give these people ignorance tests. Nothing like elevating less than mediocrity. "Fanatically ignorant." I like that, but maybe it should be "Fanatically ignorant and proud."

Thanks for the post.

This is what we all know, and the GOP has forgotten apparently...it can't get any more clear than that! Amazing how they can twist the law, and then it's our fault....unbelievable!!!!

The GOP is falling apart? Yeah, sounds about right to me.

I think it is completely possible that we may have three parties in this country by 2012.

"the Bible does not take precedence over our Constitution." That certainly went out the window during 2000-2008.

Oh no! What will the GOP do? The poster child is gone. I can't wait to see how the right tears him apart.

I just posted on this, but it appears that you did a much better job with it than I did.

Kudos kid!

The religious-right (aka the Republicans) don't want an educated population. Why do you think they oppose funding for schools and higher education. If people were well-read and educated, they might realize they have rights, and they'd realize that the Bible is not the word of god, and that they're being shit on by the Corporatocracy. Where else would the CEOs get their slave labor if the slaves can read?

Cantor does look a little like Dudley Do-right, now that you mention him as possible GOP clean-up boy, except he has enough trouble keeping his own butt out a sling. (But he IS their "whip," so maybe he'll keep them in line that way.

Here I was working on a totally different post this morning and boom! Joe the Dumber Plumber decided to whore himself out to extend his *way* expired 15 minutes. I think someone needs to grab the big hook or ring the gong to get him off the stage.

Personally, I wish that butt-leech Joe the Fluffer would leave the country too, while he's in leaving sort of way.

I must say that the whole JTP thing is incredibly amusing. He acts as if he is some credible authority and political somebody. Bye, Joe. Your 15 minutes were up months ago.
