"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Being a useless tax-dodging fraud actually hurts book sales

As "Joe" the (not)"Plumber" discovered on a recent trip to Our Nation's Capitol, being a lying sack of shit has it's drawbacks. At an event at the huge downtown Boarder's Bookstore yesterday, a whopping 11 people showed up to have "Joe" sign copies of his new book.

Joe the Plumber (no longer a plumber; first name actually Samuel) popped into our town yesterday evening to sell his new book and to remind people that he's still a plain and simple guy. Mission accomplished, on at least one of his missions.

About 11 people wandered into the rows of seats set up hopefully in the basement of a downtown Border's bookstore to hear Joe speak. Joe addressed them from behind a lectern and with a microphone, but that seemed unnecessarily formal.

Buhwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!!!!! But wait, it gets better.
