>So Joe the plumber turns out not to be the winner of last nights debate. Not unless you consider it a win to let the world know that:

1. You are not a licensed plumber,

2. you cheat on your taxes,

3. you are not trying to buy a business that makes $250,0000 a year,

4. you belonged to the Natural Law Party, before joining the Republican party (some confusion over this as his name was misspelled on the voter lists).

The Natural Law Party was founded in 1992 in the United States by a group of educators, business leaders, and lawyers in Fairfield, Iowa who practiced Transcendental Meditation. The Natural Law Party was a transnational political party with national branches in over 80 countries.
The party based its platform on Maharishi Mahesh Yogi’s view that natural law is the supreme organizing principle that governs the universe, and that the problems of humanity are caused by people acting against this natural law. The Natural Law Party claimed that it could realign humanity with this organizing principle through techniques such as the practice of Transcendental Meditation and TM-Sidhi program, and problems would be alleviated.
The various Natural Law Parties disbanded over a period of years from 2001-2006.

Yet the Republicans are still touting the guy as a hero. They can have him, after he made a “Sammy Davis” comment regarding Obama. Just another bigoted Republican hack. That’s getting to be so commonplace, it’s boring.

To get your mind off of politics for a bit, watch this. And be appreciative of “The Gays” for all they have brought to the world: Handbags, nice abs, women’s basketball, gentrification, blogging, cargo shorts…and more! Thanks Mandy, and thanks Ty for the tip.

Back to being Joe the Stripper. That’s wallpaper, of course.
