That said, I wonder, is the current trend of shuttling Joe Wurzelbacher, aka the Plumber about to make news appearances symptomatic of the right wings downward spiral?
My reason for starting this thread was comments he made yesterday where he talks about it being 'good' that he is not in congress because he would 'slap' some of the members "no joke". Then he continued to talk about how people who talked 'bad' about our troops should be shot and how they would have been shot in the past and 'no one would have said anything because it is the right thing to do'.
The fact that this man has been made a mouth piece for the right wing concerns me that this 'half' of the US political system, yes a flawed system but back on topic, seems to indicate a growing push to indoctrinate the under educated - underprivileged into a party based on petty grievances, anger, hate and a combative nature.
