Saradise Lost - Book 4 - Chapter 50 - More Valentines Day Heartbreak for Palin - Joe the Plumber Breaks Up with Her

It's over:

Joe the Plumber (aka Samuel J.Wurzelbacher) headlined state Representative Sam Rohrer’s Mobilize for Liberty event in Harrisburg today, giving the Berks County lawmaker his support a few hours after Rohrer mustered just a dozen votes in the State Republican Committee’s gubernatorial endorsement meeting.

Joe’s endorsement is apparently quite the coup. He says more than 200 politicians have asked for support this year, but so far, he’s only backed five. “I need to talk to candidates before I endorse,” he told me afterwards, explaining that his bar is pretty high. “We have a series of conversations – 20 to 30 minute conversations – and I grill them. I ask them questions about energy, education – make sure they’re straight.” Wurzelbacher says he also vets candidates online.

Wurzelbacher touched on several different points during his speech, and many of them were surprising. He said he doesn’t support Sarah Palin anymore. Why? Because she’s backing John McCain’s re-election effort. “John McCain is no public servant,” he told the room, calling the 2008 Republican nominee a career politician.

You'd think Joe could have waited until February 15th to make the announcement. What a callous guy. Next thing you know, John Zeigler will be sending her a "Dear John Sarah" note.

A plunger in hand is worth two in the bush.

Joe has it right on one thing: McCain is no public servant. After unleashing the most vapid and vindictive politician as his VP on the country, McCain needs to have his wrinkled "Country First" arse kicked to the curb forever! Do it, Arizona!

707! (that's LOL so hard you fall over backward)

McCain might even be primaried out of the mix.

Can't wait to see how the CW handles this when the polls show she isn't gonna help, and McC decides to start distancing himself from his - here we are on the V-day meme again - former fixation.

What loyalty...this guy never would have had his 15 minutes of fame if not for McCain...guess that's what he gets for trying to handle snakes...

All of McCains millions can't put Joe the Plumber back in to obscurity. An excellent lesson in be careful what you wish for, John.

As for Sarah, I may be wrong but I think Sarah already tossed Joe the Plumber under the bus. She is a pre-emptive dumper, dodging the dumpee role whenever possible.

Say it ain't so, Joe!

Ooops, wrong Joe.
