And if this (from WSJ's Washington Wire) doesn't work, McCain will . . . what?  

Literally shove his own head up the ass of Hee Haw?

On Thursday, he had a candidate for president calling for him at a rally where he was not present. At the next John McCain rally, he got to offer a civics lesson to the crowd about how they should educate themselves before voting. Then, at the final rally of the day, he had a crowd chanting his name. OK, they weren’t chanting his real name, Joe Wurzelbacher. They were chanting, of course, "Joe-the-plumb-er!" in the same rhythm usually reserved for sporting events.

If that wasn’t enough, McCain introduced Wurzelbacher as "an American hero, a great citizen of Ohio and my role model."

Does McCain have internal polling that proves that turning himself into a pathetic clown will get him votes?  How else to explain this?

Near as I can tell, McCain is calling JtP an "American hero" for lying to Barack Obama about his financial future.  Or maybe for agreeing that an Obama presidency would bring "death to Israel."  

Anyway, I'll say this for Joe Wurzelbacher, he knew how to ride his 15 minutes when they came.  From looking for album deals to mulling a congressional run, he's turning this stooge McCain into his own golden goose.

Maybe McCain will sing backup.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
