Joe, He of Blocked Toilets and Congressional Aspirations, says Obama’s Parents were Commies

You know, everyone says I look just like that guy from The Shield.
  • "You know, everyone says I look just like that guy from The Shield."

Just in case you needed another data point on the terminal idiocy of Joe the Plumber, the man and his limp noodle of a congressional campaign, we submit the following:

"Imagine being the child of a mixed-race marriage - especially in the turbulent 60’s and free-wheeling 70’s," his letter said. "And when you throw in that dad was a Muslim and mom an atheist - you know it could not have been easy - and they were communists for crying out loud!"

Those lines are lifted from a letter The Plumber — given name Samuel Wurzelbacher — recently wrote as part of his campaign to unseat Marcy Kaptur in the upcoming house election. The text is called “I’m Blessed to be a Christian” (honestly Sam, you could have left us with a little suspense); it sounds like the letter was written with the best intentions, to remind all those terrified Ohio housewives that the president is in fact a Christian, and it’s not cool to say he isn’t.
