Joe the Plumber wants in on the con, and has filed to run in 2012:
This race is going to be as big of a joke as Joe the Plumber himself. The new 9th District was drawn as a deliberate Democratic vote sink—Republicans linked up Cleveland’s West Side all the way to distant Toledo precisely to isolate as many Democratic voters as possible in a single congressional seat. It’s a clever gerrymander, which means any Republican who would try to run here just isn’t very clever at all. And that, of course, describes Joe the Plumber perfectly.
Can you blame him? Palin has proven that being a know-nothing loudmouth pays well, if you seek out the right marks.
