Now that you know the story, let’s think of some more “Joes” the McCain/Palin camp can invoke to help further their cause:
They’ve already got Joe the Plumber and Joe Six-Pack. Who’s next? Maybe Joe Camel?
He’d give them much needed coolness, but as you can see, he hurts fetuses. And we know how they feel about that. What about Joe Millionaire?
Surely he’d like McCain’s tax policies, being a millionaire and all. Except, erm, he’s actually not a millionaire, so those tax policies actually wouldn’t help him at all. What about Joe Schmo?
Well, he was dumb enough to believe he was on a reality show when really, his cast mates were actors paid to fool him. I think McCain’s only got room for one dumbass, and she’s already on board. OK, this is going to be harder than I thought. Oh! I’ve got it! How about Joe Cool?
He’s perfect! He appeals to the younger generation with his cool shades and cartoony fun, yet also attracts the older crowd as he’s an American icon. Everyone loves Snoopy, right? Oh, except, Snoopy’s a dog. And you know who he’s related to? Those wolves Sarah Palin shot from a helicopter. Fuck! I was so close!
Who do you think the next “Joe” will be?
