well, McCain, of course, silly. That's actually not the point to this post, the point is the AP news post on it, it had me laughing my ass off:
McCain points to Wurzelbacher as an example of the middle-class worker who would be hurt economically by an Obama presidency, However, Wurzelbacher likely would fare better under Obama's tax plan because it calls for no tax increase for working couples earning less than $250,000 a year — Wurzelbacher himself earns far less — and provides for a middle-class tax cut.
When a McCain supporter asked him if he believed "a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel," Wurzelbacher replied, "I'll go ahead and agree with you on that." He didn't elaborate on how Obama, who has said his commitment to Israeli security is "nonnegotiable," would be caustic for the Jewish state.
Fame brought media scrutiny to Wurzelbacher, who turned out to be an unlicensed plumber with unpaid back taxes.
Sam-the-contractor has less experience in plumbing than women who've gone through the pre-apprenticeship programs at Hard Hatted Women. You know, Hard Hatted Women, a group of women who help women transition into the trades?
Hard Hatted Women began in 1979 when three women - a telephone repair technician, a steelworker and a truck driver, formed a support group for tradeswomen.
Now, I don't know how she's planning to vote next week, but let me tell you what a real plumber looks like, she looks like Barb
Plumber, A 1991 graduate of Hard Hatted Women’s pre-apprenticeship training program, Barb has more than a decade of experience as a plumber. She was hired by Case Western Reserve University in November 2002 and is the only female plumber on staff.
She doesn't look like Sam. Barb has been apprenticed and she really is a plumber and that says a hell of a lot more to me than what Sam-the-contractor has to say, on any subject.
