I’m Joe the Plumber try my new cologne

Apparently Sam the Wurzelbacher, AKA Joe the Plumber has decided to extend his two weeks of fame beyond the current election cycle.

He has signed a management deal to to hopefully become a show business personality
“Joe the Plumber is fast becoming a brand,” his opportunistic agency said. “He is a dynamic speaker and an everyman who has become an overnight celebrity. It’s going to be our job to find Joe’s strengths and give him some options.”
To continue the immediate exposure Joe is now appearing on stage with Palin.
“He’s a fellow Alaskan, and he’s a fellow military man who served our country proudly,” Ms. Palin said. “I’d like you to meet him! Please welcome Joe the Plumber!”
But his agency can see a good future for him after the election.
“It wouldn’t be far afield to have Joe be the spokesperson for Home Depot, for example, representing the shoulder-to-the-wheel working stiff,”
“He really isn’t selling out in any way, shape or form. We just want to see where he can have a positive impact.”
Of course you know where this will all lead.
We will be inodated with spurious copy cat trades spokespeople. Wally the Window Guy, Derek the Drywaller and then the service industries, Sally the salesgirl, Brian the Burger Flipper ...
We are loosing our personal identity here folks.

What is wrong with these people, using a fictional character to gain a few moments of fleeting fame... oh wait a minute.

Never mind.

Mulcair looked good enough for me, with some of the best lines about Harper's Government during most of his interviews, except that he would always add the phrase, "just like the liberals" to the end of it and I thought, if I'm one of those Harper hating, Liberal voters that you probably need to vote for you, why the hell are you insulting me with this partisan bullshit.


That is the number of Syrian refuges that the Harper government has brought into Canada.

From the Globe and Mail:
However, the government is facing criticism because 2,374 Syrian refugees have so far been settled. Of that number, only 622 - or 26 percent - were assisted by the government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government. The others were privately sponsored by individuals or non-government organizations. The NDP argues that in addition to private sponsors, the government should immediately accept 10,000 Syrian refugees. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said the target should be 25,000 government-sponsored refugees, which he estimates would cost Ottawa $100-million.In other words the Harper government that banters around the 10,000 plus refugee number has brought in 622 refugees or about 170 families.

The other 2,352 so called refugees that Harper has allowed to emigrate to Canada consist of wealthy Syrian Christians who paid their own way in, hightailing …
