    Plumbers of the World! Unite!

    People like to accuse Republicans, and especially John McCain, of being out of touch.

    I just saw Barack Obama at a rally today (on TV, I wasn't there) and he said "How many plumbers do you know who make $250,00??

    Well, I don't know when the last time Obama or Michelle called a plumber (probably never), but they charge a lot of money, Barack.

    And, the plumbers who run those companies who send the individual plumbers to your house almost certainly make over $250,000. Those guys, once their income is confiscated to redistribute to those who still are behind, will stop hiring those guys.

    So, poor plumbers, you'll have a nice little middle class tax cut, but you won't have a job.

    At least you can take solace in the fact that Obama will extend your unemployment benefits for a longer time and that minimum wage job you're forced to take at McDonalds pays a few pennies more than it does now.

    I used to go to a mechanic, then found out he lived on Balboa Island. I quit going to his shop. I go to a little one man, one bay place now. You wouldn't believe how much money I save. He does much better work, which I appreciate. He gets the work done much more promptly. I don't care so much about that. I hope my old mechanic gets soaked by the IRS.

    Nothing like a little class envy to stir the pot.

    I hope your old mechanic gets taxed 100% of everything he makes.

    That'll fix those rich bastards!
