Joe the Plumber Await's God's Call, Fears Queers

No wonder John McCain lost so terribly with Joe the Plumber as his poster boy.  Samuel Wurtzelbacker, aka Joe the Plumber, was interviewed by Christianity Today magazine and said that God had not yet called him to run for public office.  Perhaps the unemployed ex-plumber forgot to pay his phone bill.

I wonder how Joe's new book is selling? It's always a hoot when Joe opens his mouth and here is the latest: "I've had some friends that are actually homosexual. And, I mean, they know where I
stand, and they know that I wouldn't have them anywhere near my children."

"People don't understand the dictionary - it's called queer. Queer means strange and unusual. It's not like a slur, like you would call a white person a honky or something like that. You know, God is pretty explicit in what we're supposed to do - what man and woman are for."

I wonder if Joe thought [ sorry for implying anything] that those 'actual homosexuals' were the same thing as pedophiles?  Do you think he knows the difference?

The Blade article continues,"  Joe Solmonese, president of the Human Rights Campaign, a national gay rights organization, dismissed Mr. Wurzelbacher's comments."It would matter if Joe the Plumber mattered," Mr. Solmonese said. "One thing among many things we learned in the 2008 campaign is that he doesn't."

He doesn't.  Exactly, but was John McCain that dumb or was he that desperate when he invited Joe into his presidential campaign?  Imagine the thought if McCain had won- Joe the Plumber may have  given a position in his administration.  Secretary of Education?

By the way, did Joe ever graduate from high school?
