Oh McCain. Johnny Boy. "Get off my lawn" gramps. You would think that if you make a certain individual the heart of your debate, you might wanna check into the facts.
Two readers with access to the Ohio voter file say that Joe Wurzelbacher's inluence on this cycle will be limited in one way: He doesn't appear to be registered to vote.
(And yes, the freelance opposition research on Joe began before the debate ended.)
Now, I realize that this has not been varified, but if this is true, and the MSM picks up on it, I honestly think that this may have damaging affects. McCain kept bringing him up, adding a new rule to drinking games. He is a household name now and then we find out he can't even vote.
This is another example of McCain jumping on the gun, not thinking things through. You have Palin, then suspending a campaign, this, and many others. Not looking into things, going with the wind. Whatever he can get a hold of. Could he be, shall I say, "erratic". I believe he is.
Here's an interview he did with Katie Couric at: CBS News
COURIC: Could you just, Joe, explain quickly, and then we'll let you go, how you met both of the candidates?
WURZELBACHER: I've yet to meet John McCain. Obama came to my neighborhood and my son and I were outside tossing the football, and all of a sudden he showed up, and there went our football tossing for a while. And, you know, neighbors were outside asking him questions, and I didn't think they were asking him tough enough questions, so I thought, you know, I'll go over there. You know, I've always wanted to ask one of these guys a question and really corner them and get them to answer a question of--for once instead of tap dancing around it. And unfortunately I asked the question but I still got a tap dance. Do you - almost as good as Sammy Davis Jr.
He hasn't even met McCain. Anyone else freaked out about McCain establishing close relationships with those he hardly knows?
UPDATE #2: Thanks for the rec list people!!
UPDATE #3: So far, nobody can find him being a registered plumber. Can look it up here: http://elicense1-lookup.com.ohio.gov/.... Last name: Wurzelbacher
