    Because it's only after the election and when his book is coming out, that McCain appalls him. But if you really want the details of how and why he appalled him, you have to wait until it comes out this month.
    That clever bastard! That's how he'll sell so many books! Damn cliffhangers!!

    Please show me who these Conservatives are that claim: "liberals are genetically predisposed to being thuggish assholes without an ounce of dignity or class between the lot of them."
    LOL! Why should anyone take any insuation from that in a post responding to mine and challenging me to prove my statement?

    You're welcome for looking up and posting the quote.

It's not that I care, I just find Joe appalling. Now, why do you care?

    So he's going to make money off his 15 minutes of fame.

    Big deal.

    I don't care what he does, or why - I'm just fascinated by those that are obsessed with JtP.

    I don't think that criticizing an opportunist equates to obsession. I think that people kind of forgot about him after the election was over. I know that I did. The fact that he is now writing a book tells me that he's trying to suck up every last droplet of fame that could be had. Though, I honestly am curious about who would read such a book. From the interviews that I've seen and comments he doesn't really seem like the type to write a very awe-inspiring or articulate book that would hold interest for most.

    Obama made him famous. Why not capitalize on it?

    There are all kinds of people that read all kinds of things for reasons people don't understand.

    I wouldn't say that Obama made him famous. The guy asked him a question and then McCain used it to prove several points during the debates.

    That is very true.

    No Obama, no JtP. He was in the news before McCain picked up on him.

    It looks to me like several people find joe fascinating by the number of posts to this thread, exactly what the Joe wants, even more so than the thread on the biggest shake-down of a U.S. governor in history.

    Incredible. Or is this just pleasant distraction for...some... people.

    I don't know if you've read through this thread, but to be fair most of these posts were the usual I love/hate Sarah Palin, liberal vs. conservative, he said/ she said dribble. Right away when it was pointed out Joe said Sarah Palin was the real deal, it spiraled out of control from there.
