Comedy Gold: Joe the Plumber in Israel

I shit you not.

AP thru the Yahoo gateway.

Here is the comedy gold.

Title: Joe Plumber: media shouldn't report war

Body: Samuel Wurzelbacher, also known as 'Joe the Plumber', is in Israel working as a rookie war correspondent, where he said Sunday that he believes journalists should be abolished from reporting from war zones.

Lets go to Reuters Joe the Plumber plugs Israel over Gaza offensive.

SDEROT, Israel (Reuters) - Joe the Plumber has plunged into the Gaza war.

Covering the conflict for, a U.S. conservative website, Joe Wurzelbacher was in the southern Israeli town of Sderot on Sunday, a target of rockets from the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip, and defended Israel's 16-day-old offensive.

Read that again if you don't get it the first time.

Joe the (representative, typical) American idiot poster boy for stupidity was in Sderot.

"I've seen some very bad press about Israel," said Wurzelbacher, a colorful figure in the U.S. presidential campaign in which defeated Republican John McCain cited the Ohio plumber as an example of someone who would be hurt by Democrat Barack Obama's tax plan.

"Israel is being attacked and they're defending themselves," Wurzelbacher told reporters. His remarks were interrupted by an alert for an incoming rocket which sent him dashing to a concrete shelter. No one was hurt.

Seems like a war zone to me...

The ending of the article is not too funny:
Gaza medical officials said 874 Palestinians have been killed and more than 3,000 wounded since Israel's offensive began on December 27. Israel says 10 soldiers have been killed and rocket fire has killed three civilians.

My god, I just watched Joe the moron speak to the press.

Watch the embedded youtube video from AP - this man, alongside bush and palin, represents America to the rest of the world.

I wonder if the Daily Show, or Colbert Report, or both, will run this footage - they oughta (you betcha!).

"The trouble with arguing with stupid people is they don't know when they've lost."

I don't remember who said that, but they could've been talking about Joe
