Oh.My.God. Continued.

Joe the Plumber, via Hilzoy:

“”I’ll be honest with you. I don’t think journalists should be anywhere allowed war. I mean, you guys report where our troops are at. You report what’s happening day to day. You make a big deal out of it. I think it’s asinine. You know, I liked back in World War I and World War II when you’d go to the theater and you’d see your troops on, you know, the screen and everyone would be real excited and happy for ’em. Now everyone’s got an opinion and wants to downer, ah, down soldiers. You know, American soldiers or Israeli soldiers.

I think media should be abolished from, uh, you know, reporting. You know, war is hell. And if you’re gonna sit there and say, ‘Well look at this atrocity,’ well you don’t know the whole story behind it half the time, so I think the media should have no business in it.”

I know – I shouldn’t even be repeating it. I’m part of the problem, not the solution. God help me, I can’t help myself.

I would pay a pretty penny to find out what percentage of American voters agree with this nutcase. And I don’t think he’s just getting his 15 minutes of fame. He’s already on minute 37, for chrissakes, by my count. I think he’s here to stay. He’ll have a long-running radio program at a minimum.
