Plumbers of the World Unite

Never under-estimate the power of a plumber.

Yes it was the plumber's from Poland that was going to be the under-mining of the British economy, employment and immigration system.

Now it is Joe the Plumber from mid-west America that is going to be McCain's saving grace. McCain is out there for Joe - in his tax policies, in his employment policies, in his health policies. At the moment McCain's world is revolving around Joe the Plumber.

And obviously a vote for Obama will mean the end of Joe the Plumber's hopes and dreams (the "American dream" no less).

Now I assume McCain knows that there are a few million Joe's out there that want to own the plumbing business that they have worked with for all of their lives. I hope all the Joe's are receiving royalties for the use of their image. If they got $1 from McCain every time he mentioned them, they could forget about buying the business and just retire comfortably now.

So a vote for McCain is a vote for Joe. A vote for McCain is a vote for a genuine war-hero that looked like a big sookie-baby because his feelings were hurt. A vote for McCain is for the man who made a blooper on the debate and was heard to exclaim a loud "Huh?!?" when he got caught out.

Gotta love politics :-)

Hi MG, I think it's a Freudian slip because McCain's campaign is leaking and his team don't know how to fix it lol.

I've been meaning to say ... your blog is wonderfully colourful. Pics like that country food table (Wednesday) are just excellent.

Thanks for the compliment diver - I must admit I am a bit of a color fan :-)

Freudian slip or not, I think McCain is just grasping at whatever straws he can - or to keep your metaphor going, grabbing for anything that might float because the boat is going down :-)

See the YouTube video below:

for one person’s perspective on how you can make a decision to support Obama AND vote for John McCain. Feel free to forward this to any “undecided” voters you know of. This will be a VERY close election and we need every single vote we can get.

Demonizing Obama will get us a few votes (and also lose us at least a few votes) but I hope that a rational, positive thought process will persuade a few people who are still on the fence.

Dan you are preaching to an Australian that, like the rest of the world, doesn't do McCain.

Thanks for trying ...
