Why is it we know more about Joe the Plumber than Barack Obama? Why is it there are investigators crawling around Alaska trying to dig up dirt on Palin, but yet Obama gets away with ties to William Ayers (the Timothy McVeigh of another generation) and his ties to Resko and his very overt distancing himself of controversial people. Even Obama's responses are not very good (e.g. last night he said "Ayers did not help me this campaign"). The media also seems to ignore McCain and Biden's issues too. Why is it that everyone else is a target, but the ones who should be better vetted are the candidates themselves? What is wrong with the media? Joe the Plumber is in an interesting situation. Everything came to him, yet he only asked a legitimate question yet everyone wants to pile on and tear him apart. Something is not right.
Why does the media go after Sarah Palin and Joe the Plumber but ignores the candidates like Obama?
