This is McCain's idea of a role model?

"On Tuesday, Wurzelbacher endorsed the insane idea that a vote for Obama would be "a vote for the death of Israel." On Wednesday, Wurzelbacher played political scientist, saying the notion of progressive taxation is "honestly right out of Karl Marx's mouth. No one can debate that. That's not my opinion. That's fact." And on Thursday, McCain believes Wurzelbacher is an "American hero" and his personal "role model."" -- http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/archives/individual/2008_10/015454.php Also, that "death to Israel" thing was debunked on Fox News of all places--it's got to be pretty absurd for that to happen. This is the same network that asked, with a straight face, if Obama bumping fists with his wife as a greeting was a "terrorist fist jab". And one more thing--progressive taxation has been a part of American law since the inception of the income tax in 1913--is Sam the not-really Plumber seriously suggesting that the same tax system we've had for nearly a century, and that John McCain defended in 2000, is Marxist?

Hey well you know anyone can grasp... I really wish this idiot would fade away but, it doesn't look like it would happen anytime soon. And it looks as if FOX found its "fair and balanced" side for once! I'm sure that will fade away too only faster than Joe the plumber

Looks like another person that McCain decided not to "vet" before unleashing on the campaign trail. I think McCain is concerned about losing Jewish voters, so let's see if we can continue the campaign of fear and hope that the people concerned with Israel only catch snippets and not the whole story before election day. I think this may be the first time I can say "good for you" to Fox news.

That, "No one can debate that..." statement really blew me away! What an arrogant a$$hole! So, yes, in answer to your question, this is exactly McCain's idea of a role model. God help us all if this crew gets elected. Annie
