Puzzling Questions, Part II

New York Daily News:

You’d think Joe the Plumber’s 15 minutes would be up by now. But , no, after a stint as a correspondent in Israel, he took his act to Capitol Hill today.
The first order of business: giving political advice to conservative Republican staffers at breakfast, which, Wurzelbacher told us, “Went really well.” *** One thing that needs to be done, he said, is killing this stimulus package, because it’s just another example of “American government” — Republicans and Democrats — “kicking our butts left and right.” He also called it welfare.

Puzzling Question: If tax problems of Obama nominees are so all-fired important to the Republicans, why is tax dodging Joe the Plumber getting invited to advise them on the stimulus package?

Which begs the bigger question: Why are the Republicans asking someone with the obvious intelligence of a nematode for advice? Are they that desperate for an identity?

If I were invited to the dog-and-pony show, as Joe was, I'd go, too.

You can't fault the man for taking advantage of the GOP.

You can fault the GOP for not hunkering down and planning for the future.

Oh, wait. They have Sarah Palin. The Party of Lincoln is saved!!!!
