There's a strange convergence of strange and stupid behavior by conservatives going on right now. It's called CPAC (Conservative Political Action Conference), and it used to be an assemblage of the best and brightest of the conservative side of politics. They've always been a scary bunch to this humble blogger, but lately they just seem. . .I dunno, desperate? Crazy? Stupid?
Exhibit A in the parade of desperation, craziness and stupidity is one Samuel "Joe the Plumber" Wurzelbacher. As you know, he's not a licensed plumber, isn't named Joe, wasn't truthful in the incident that brought him to national prominence, and he's also a blithering idiot. And he wants to slap and/or shoot Congressmembers he disagrees with.
