My favorite comment from the Daily Kos post where they give out Joe Wurzelbacher's home address

I only skimmed the gazillion comments, so it's possible they're not all dimwitted fascists. But this one grabbed me (and no, I'm not linking to the thread; if you need Joe's address, find it yourself):

Get this crap off of here. You've got the ex-wife's address.

Let's get just a little smart folks.

Note that the problem isn't posting a private citizen's personal info as part of a politically motivated harassment campaign. No, the problem is that it might not be the right address. Although who knows, maybe Joe's ex-wife is an enemy of the state too? Better dig up a little dirt on her as well, just to be on the safe side. That would be the smart thing to do.

Here's my second favorite:

I am sick and f****** tired of being told that, because I live in California (used to be SF), that I am somehow LESS of an American than these "average Joe" types.

Every time you scratch the surface of one of these media stereotypes in real life, they are scum.

I am a patriotic American who loves the Constitution, ideals of freedom and succeeding on merit.

And I'm sick, as an educated, gay, urban-dwelling American, of being unfavorably compared to these fake, lying, wife-beating, tax-cheating, racist, immigrant-hating frauds.

F*** him. F*** them. It's my America, too.

Yet another reason not to vote for Obama: If he wins, it'll make these "citizen journalists" angry, insane idiots happy for a day or two.

P.S. In the comments at Patterico, Perfect Sense lives up to his or her name:

The "newsmen" who have been "exposing" Joe the Plumber must be even greater frauds and liars [than he is, purportedly] as none of them have "journalism licenses" and none are recognized by any state or federal agency as journalists. Some may work for companies with a business license, but I doubt if any individuals practicing journalism have licenses. Just think, the state and lefties expect higher standards from a plumber than a journalist.
