This video is part of a fun new web series Joe the Plumber (whose name, as you know, is Steve, because THAT’S SHOWBIZ) is launching as a light-hearted side to his otherwise “serious” campaign for Ohio’s ninth congressional district. It’s funny, right? So funny. I think my favorite thing about it, though, isn’t the hilarious comedy, but how much sense it makes and how in-line it is with a consistent political viewpoint. Like, well all know that every single liberal is an unemployed, poorly dressed, uninformed protester. That’s just basic facts. Not only do none of them have jobs, but none of them WANT jobs. Because who cares, man, SPARK UP THAT BONG! It’s so lame that people work for a living. (The idea that conservatives are the only ones who feed their families and that all liberals get some kind of check from the government is so patently ridiculous and infuriating that it’s not even worth THINKING about much less writing down those thoughts. Besides, it’s not FUN and these videos are about HAVING FUN!) Liberals are the fucking worst. They don’t even know what taxes are, which is a little confusing, because I thought all they wanted to do was raise taxes and give the government all of our money, but it turns out they don’t know what they are or what they’re used for. OK. Conservatives, however, take pride in working hard so that they can pay their taxes to support our nation’s parks. Wait, what? Joe the Plumber supports taxes for parks? He also seems to think that the only reason people don’t have a job is because they’re lazy, which will make it harder for him to attack Barack Obama for his performance on the economy and stagnant unemployment rates, since it’s either his fault and people want to work, or it’s the people’s fault because they don’t want to work, but I’m not sure it can be both. No matter what, this is definitely not a confusing jumble of contradictory ideas. It’s clean. It’s clear. The choice is obvious. Vote for Joe the Plumber and keep the parks open for bullshit liberal protests. 2012. Guhhh more years. (Thanks for the tip, Jessica.)

  1. Between Joe The Plumber and Larry The Cable Guy, it sounds like we’re just about ready to start filming some porn that nobody wants.

  2. Are those the clothes he plumbs in?

  3. I think that guy is basically doing a Bizarro-version of Rush Limbaugh as a liberal.

  4. Liberals…Just sitting on their hands in their Red, White and Blue Rod Blagojevich t-shirts with blue tape taped over the letters.

  5. I call upon my Lord on Earth John Hodgman to swoop down and smite these people and their poor parody of mine Lord’s mac v. pc commercials (which are SO 2,000 and LATE now) with your mighty Judge’s gavel and mustache!

  6. More like Shmo the Dumber.

  7. What the deuce?

  8. Jesus Christ, could Joe The Plumber look any more like a sexual harassment lawsuit? I can almost hear him calling a coworker “Tits”.

  9. This seems like an irrational prejudice, but I could never bring myself to vote for a guy whose middle name is “The”.

  10. and following the rules of sketch comedy….

    “Yes, and…liberals are the protesters with crappy cardboard signs written in pen.”

  11. Did he give the hippy liberal a free ride? GET IT?

  12. Have fun fitting Wurzelbacher on a bumper sticker.

  13. Too unbelievable. Like a conservative would ever say, “Somebody has to pay the taxes.” That’s the joke part, right?

  14. We are through the looking glass here. I mean, FACT: Joe the Plumber is famous solely because he asked Obama to explain taxes to him, and didn’t understand the explanation. THAT IS A FACT.

  15. Guys, give him a break. He has a right to be angry. If all those liberal hippies out in Hollywood like Hugh Jackman and Liam Neeson keep messing up the world like they are, they’re going to render guys like Joe The Plumber obsolete!

  16. I’ve never fully understood why pooling the nation’s money to pay for Police, Parks, etc. doesn’t fall under the “socialism,” umbrella. Why is it ok to pay for these public goods, but not something like health care? is there a line that exists? Calling something/one socialist seems to be a pretty consistent conservative smear these days, but it seems like big universally accepted parts of the country are collective? Can someone call Joe and ask, please?

    • Short answer is those things you mentioned that benefit everybody do fall under the umbrella of socialism. We’ve always had a mix of capitalism and socialism in this country.

    • Well… not to get all RON PAUL 2012 but if you really want to keep the parks free, we should open up the land for free market capitalism because that is ultimately what will save us. From the parks.

      Seriously the real hardcore Libertarians, Republicans and insane Ron Paul types want to get rid of parks or at least open up their mineral and oil rights to keep us independent from foreign interests. (And, actually, Karl Rove and Cheney were behind this movement in about 2001 or 2002.) In my devoted research of YouTube scholars, I have learned the best way to create jobs is to dismantle everything including fire departments and police departments because it is a citizen’s right and duty to protect their homestead or something. And the U.S. Postal Service bc no duh, that’s obviously socialism at work.

  17. Well, ya know, at least Joe was friendly to that fat liberal slob. He’s gunna give him a ride! Like, that’s something. Right? Some ray of sunshine in this nightmare cesspool.

    You guys, I hate everything.

  18. Have you seen James Gandolfini’s impression of Joe the Plumber?

  19. “Taxes that pay for the street, the police… so you can have your protest.”

  20. The liberal protester makes a FAR more convincing Tea Party protester. They literally would have to change nothing about him or his costume.
