Not Joe The Non-Plumber Now A GOP Strategist
Okay, I’m being snarky, since his name is Sam and he’s not a licensed plumber, but he is a desired guest at the Conservative Working Group, an organization of Republican staffers who meet regularly to chart strategy. He will address them on his views of the stimulus package (Surprise! He’s against it!). They clearly think he’s a big draw that will increase attendance for a 9AM meeting.
“In case you weren’t planning to attend CWG tomorrow morning, you might want to reconsider because Joe the Plumber will be joining us!” Kimberly Wallner, an aide to South Carolina Sen. Jim DeMint, wrote in a message to her e-mail list this afternoon.
One minute the GOP does something smart, like electing Michael Steele as Chairman; the next minute they’re heaping attention on a guy who said, while working as a “war correspondent”, “the media should be abolished from uh, you know, reporting.” And let’s not forget the remarkable statement that a vote for Obama is a vote for the death of Israel in spite of the fact that he couldn’t articulate Obama’s positions on the topic.
