    how "Elite" you must be to think that us pointing out your self aggrandizing intelletcualism means we actually believe "the elite" to be, well, "elite".


    They are not, they think they are. I am not suprised you have not pickd up on that yet.

    Hope this post finds you well.

    You -do- know that "elitist" refers to your 'better than thou' mindset rather than any actual superiority in intelligence or knowledge -- right?

    Re: Joe the Plumber to become war correspondent

    Question:

    Why does anyone give a **** about Joe being a war correspondent? So what? If it were me, I'd JUMP at the chance to make money doing nothing. I'd rather be a war correspondent than a plumber any day of the week.

    If you can take advantage of a situation, that's the smart thing to do. Who cares if you make an ass of yourself by doing it? I'd absolutely LOVE to make dumb comments for money.

    Normally I just do it for free!

    So far all I see caring is the thread starter and his left wing ilk who are caring. But hey, that's just me my friend.

    Its really quite simple:

    Joe The Plumber had the audacity to legitimately question The Obama, and in doing so, exposed The Obama for what he really is.

    The Obamanistas cannot allow this to stand, and so are driven to discredit Joe every chance they get.

    Actually, I edited out the "ethier side" because I noticed it was not equal on both sides. Most righties don't really give a **** and agree that he did the smart thing by taking advantage of the situation.

    It looks like a few lefties have stated it as well, but most of the people attacking Joe for taking the job are on the left.

    I see it as, he should definitely have taken the job, absolutely. There is no doubt it was the smart thing to do. It doesn't mean he's all that good at it or that I agree with his opinions on some things, or that I think he's all that intelligent overall, but he sure as hell made the smart decision to take this job.

    Although that seems like a no-brainer on his part. Even I'd be smart enough to make that decision.

    Re: Joe the Plumber to become war correspondent

    I honestly don't see the need to attack the guy at all. It's not like he created this position for himself or went around giving out some sort of bull**** resume saying he was qualified for this position. Pajamas Media offered him the position and he took it like anyone would.

    If anything they should be criticized for lowering the bar so much that they gave a quasi-celebrity like Joe The Plumber a job as a war correspondent. Who knows why they tapped him for that job? When I saw the clip of him asking Obama the notorious question I certainly didn't think that the guy had chops to be a war correspondent. The idea hadn't even popped into my head. It seems to me that the only reason they tapped him to be a War Correspondent was to grab headlines and perhaps keep the guy in the press a bit longer. It may or may not come back to bite them in the ass. Who knows and frankly, who cares? If you don't like what he has to say or the fact that he was given the job don't watch his reports and steer clear of Pajamas Media.
