The Plunger Revolution joins the Lipstick Revolution

Plungers greet Obama at Virginia Rally

ROANOKE, Virginia (CNN) — The new symbol of the McCain campaign: the plunger.

As Democratic nominee Barack Obama pulled into the Roanoke Civic Center on Friday, he was greeted by the usual McCain campaign supporters that show at Obama rallies. But this time, those waving McCain-Palin signs were joined by dozens of people waving standard-issue plungers. Some wore white t-shirts emblazoned with "I AM JOE THE PLUMBER" on the front. The protesters all said they were volunteers and not paid by the McCain campaign.

The plungers serve as a reference to the 2008 campaign's latest cult personality, Joe "the Plumber" Wurzelbacher of Holland Ohio. (Joe is actually his middle name. First name: Samuel).

While the plungers emerged in Roanoke, McCain's vice presidential running mate Sarah Palin told a fundraiser in neighboring North Carolina Thursday night that she's already tired of "Joe the Plumber."

"Don't make me say Joe the Plumber, please, in any speeches," Palin said.

“I AM JOE!” No really, I am.

Politics is easy when you have no shame or conscience - like Democrats. I’m glad that everyone gets to see the Leftist’s condescension toward and absolute terror of "Joe the Plumber."

Now, the B. Hussein campaign and its Media organs are conducting a Palin-like search and destroy mission on the poor guy whose only transgression was that he deigned to ask a question to the Messiah without a teleprompter present. Uh-uh-bama then slips up and tells the truth.

The Obamedia has done more legwork on Joe in 2 days than on Obambi in 2 years. It was one thing when they were picking on Palin’s kids - after all, they deserved it for being born - but now they’ve gone and really stepped in it by defaming a union plumber. That just doesn’t sit well with the great unwashed in flyover country.
