With so many Joe’s on the campaign trail this year, the Average Joe’s among us must be feeling very special. First, we have Joe the Plumber who outed Obama’s socialism intent. BTW, Joe is his middle name; his first is Samuel. This Joe is not ashamed of his middle name the way that Obama is of his. If you have the unmitigated audacity to call him by his full name, Barack Hussein Obama, the left-wing nutjobs will hastily devour your rotting corpse while quaffing every last drop of your conservative blood.
Back on topic, let us not forget the metaphorical Joe’s. They’re quite the talk in campaign rally speeches. Joe Six-pack is a frequent reference by Sarah Palin. And two weeks ago on NBC’s “Today” show, in a sharp riposte, Biden pontificated about Joe the Cop, Joe the Accountant, and Joe the Lawyer.
Of course, republican John McCain has the support of democrat Joe Lieberman. And, Obama, himself, kick-started this whole darned Ubiquitous Joe-Chatter (UJC) by selecting none other than Joe Biden as his running mate. Thanks Barry.
In the VP Debate, Palin replied: “Say it ain’t so, Joe, there you go again, pointing backwards again. You prefaced your whole comment with ‘the Bush administration’. Now doggone it, let’s look ahead and tell Americans what we plan to do for them in the future.”
BTW, the words “Say it ain’t so, Joe” date back to 1920. They were allegedly spoken to Chicago White Sox baseball star Shoeless Joe Jackson by a broken-hearted young supporter, as Joe was leaving a grand jury hearing where he had admitted taking part in a match-fixing scandal.
Certainly, we can not forget about GI-Joe … his future will depend largely on who we elect next week. So … all you Joe’s out there; I salute you. And, let us all thank Joe Cook, the soldier star of WeNeedMcCain’s first YouTube video … Dear Mr. Obama … over 10 million views and counting.
Who am I to prattle on about Ordinary Joe, Joe Schmo, and Joe Blow? Me … I’m just an Average Joe with an above average determination to contribute to the conservative voice this year.
Now, make sure YOU vote … and I am not Joe-King.
