Joe the Plumber: McCain screwed up my life

Joe the Plumber is no longer a fan of either Sarah Palin or John McCain, it seems. Joe, also known as Sam Wurzelbacher, told an audience in Pennsylvania this week that McCain "is no public servant."

Hmmm....really? We told you that like a year & a half ago.

McCain on SNL

I don't know if you have seen or not, but John McCain was on SNL and actually he did more than what any candidate has done.

I am sure that I will post the video when it is online.

Since PinkSlip is incapable of being fair, this is what will now happen on postings that get out of control. I will force fairness by taking them over and putting in both sides of the debate, so you can decide what you want about the post.

Even GOP says McCain must accept earmarks

Out on the stump, John McCain gets wild applause each time he promises as president to veto every spending bill that contains an earmark.

But McCain will find it almost impossible to live up to his vow, and gridlock would result if Congress refused to go along with such an executive branch power grab.

And that’s what members of McCain’s own party are saying.
