Hilarious - Joe the Plumber (real name Samuel J. Wurzelbacher), who you might remember as McCain’s mascot during the failed republican campaign, has found a new vocation as a war reporter. The conservative blog Pajamas TV (who like to campaign against media bias) have sent him out to Sderot, Israel where he has met exclusively with Israelis to give a nice rounded perspective on the situation. But he must not like his new job very much because he quickly comes to the conclusion that reporters shouldn’t be allowed to report on wars. Instead we should all get our information on world conflicts from government propaganda films like "back in World War I and World War II". Good thinking Joe! Below is a little transcript of Joe’s tirade so you can see just how wonderfully confused the poor man is.
“To be honest with you, I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war [sic]. … I liked back in World War I and World War II, when you’d go to the theatre and you’d see your troops on the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for them. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to down soldiers — our American soldiers, our Israeli soldiers. I think media should be abolished from reporting. You know, war’s hell, and if you’re gonna sit there and say ‘Well look at this atrocity’ — well you don’t know the full story behind it half the time. So I think the media should have no business in it.”
