Joe the Plumber Speaks ... to the Radical Right
This post on the Wall Street Journal's Washington Wire links to a spooky right wing website that purports to have an interview with Joe the Plumber. If it's accurate, Joe is frightened by the socialist tendencies of Barack Obama's healthcare and tax policies.
Warning: The site's mission is "to empower all Americans to become proactive defenders of our national security and community safety." The site is pro-Patriot Act, believes Homeland Security starts at the borders, and urges greater awareness and fear of the threat we face from terrorists working to "establish Islam as the dominant force worldwide by undermining the Western institutions that restrict the ascendancy of radical Islam." Take the source for what it's worth, even if it was good enough for Washington Wire.
And then ask whether Joe the Plumber (who asked his question hypothetically because he hasn't actually started his own plumbing shop and isn't making $250K but might some day) was worth talking about tonight.
