Everybody’s favorite fictional and daft instrument of conservative populist platitudes Sam Wurzelbacher ( the so-called ‘Joe the Plumber’) has resurfaced again, according to Wonkette.

At a conference where Obama was once again compared to Stalin (how cliche), and “Joe”called for Senator Chris Dodd (D-CT)to be “Strung up” He also said the following:

Wurzelbacher has a reputation for being a blunt, politically incorrect speaker. Referring to Sen. Chris Dodd, D-Conn., more than once, Wurzelbacher asked, “Why hasn’t he been strung up?”

And he glosses over facts. Referring to the Constitution as “almost like the Bible,” Wurzelbacher said of the Founding Fathers: “They knew socialism doesn’t work.

Yeah Sam, inspirational point except that Marxism/ Communism was born in the 1840s. The Communist Manifesto in fact wasn’t published until 1848; far after the crusade of our founding father’s as laid out in the American Revolution, the Declaration of Independence in 1776, and the foundation of our principles were laid when they were enshrined in the Constitution in 1787.

Digg!
