I spoke with Joe!

Or, at least, that’s what the DNC would like me to believe.  You see, this last Saturday, I got a robo-call from “Joe, a plumber in Wisconsin.”  His recorded voice went on to explain how he raised an issue with McCain while he was campaigning, which McCain ignored before using him to launch false attacks against Barack Obama.

Now, I’ll give ’em the benefit of the doubt and say that it *was* Joe, a plumber in Wisconsin, who recorded that call.  However, it wasn’t the “Joe the Plumber” who McCain referenced – including by name – who is in Ohio, not Wisconsin.

Not the Joe everybody on the Obama side of the ticket was thrilled to discover had some financial problems, because it’s so much more PC to smear an individual than it is to smear entrepeneurs as a whole, which is who “Joe the Plumber” was chosen to represent.

Now, say what you will about Obama’s tax plan.  But if I’d donated money to his campaign, I’d really, really be pissed off that he’s using it to pay somebody to pose as another person entirely.  That’s generally called false advertising….

Or, y’know.  Politics.
