Joe the Plumber sweated the joints of a drab election season with the propane torch of true conservatism, blinding us all with its radiance. So I felt a little betrayed when I read the latest doings of Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.
Pajama TV, a conservative Internet site, reported that he is suing Ohio officials for violating his privacy rights (Joe Wurzelbacher Goes to Court, March 9, 2009). He also has his own show on PJTV, Just Joe, from which he reported from Israel on the Gaza War in January.
OMG, trial lawyers and journalists - say it ain't so, Joe. You're becoming the people Rush warned you about.
Sic transit gloria mundi.
