I wish this were a joke

I don't know if anyone else has been following THIS but it's a story that's been getting me increasingly steamed up. For those just tuning in, "Joe the Plumber" - the douchebag Republican voter hailed by the McCain campaign as a symbol of middle class America during the Presidential campaign after he questioned Obama on tax policy - has been sent to the Middle East by a conservative website as their correspondent on the Gaze conflict.

No, really.

While his qualifications, other than being a loud-mouth cunt, remain unclear so far Joe's correspondence work seems to involve going on tours with the Israeli forces (though he's not allowed inside Gaza strip, heavens no) and offering profound insights such as that it's actually the Israeli's who are the real victims here and that's it's their homes - their HOMES damnit - that are being threatened by Hamas.

He's also got some great things to say on that damn left-wing bias in the damn liberal media, damnit.

Stunning insights Joe, just stunning.

And in case you were hoping there might at least be an odds-on chance this sham could be put to a quick end with a stray rocket? Sorry guys, Joe's covered by the Almighy:

"Being a Christian I'm pretty well protected by God I believe. That's not saying he's going to stop a mortar for me, but you gotta take the chance.”

Fingers crossed, Joe, fingers crossed.
