circle the wagons

BRIAN WILLIAMS: (dramatic music) What do we know about this plumber named Joe?

JOHN BERMAN:  It doesn’t actually appear he’s a licensed plumber, and, it does appear there are some issues about past taxes.  There are records of a tax lean filed against Joe!

WYATT ANDREWS:  The man whose personal story steered a presidential debate over taxes, owes some $1,200 in back taxes.

DAVID “RODHAM” GERGEN:  When we found out he was Sam the Non-plumber, it changed a little bit. (snicker) Why the McCain team didn’t vet the guy…

ROLAND MARTIN:  Joe, you know, the fake plumber…

ANDERSON COOPER:  Joe is not actually a licensed plumber.  He admits he’s not making anywhere close to a quarter million.  His name is actually not Joe; at least that’s not his first name.  His name is Sam: Samuel Joseph Wurzelbacher.

CHRISTOPHER HAYES:  There’s this tremendous gap between the mythical creature of Joe the Plumber and the actual real-life guy, and we see this time and time again.  Sarah Palin is a perfect example.   

BEHAR:  Joe the Plumber doesn’t have a business yet.  He’s fantasizing about a business he’s going to have.

    It’s so…so…embarrassing. The fact that he was brought up, the fact that the media scoped him out, that he’s not a plumber, that he’s gonna be on FOX news…that he’s become a symbol. It’s so fucking stupid! On ALL parts. It’s not solving anything. The campaign is too long; and it seems to be decided (though I’m not taking it for granted) and everyone needs to go home, think about ways to work together and solve our problems. This is bringing out the worst in everybody.
    By the way, did you see the comedy roast with McCain and Obama? Very funny.

    It was hysterical. They were both really funny.

    But I published these quotes to show how vicious this campaign is and what people in powerful positions are willing to say or do to support their candidate.
