This seems… inappropriate:

Joe the Plumber — real name Samuel Wurzelbacher — told a crowd of conservatives Thursday night that their love was getting him all hot and bothered.

“God, all this love and everything in the room — I’m horny,” declared Joe.

Wurzelbacher had taken the stage to a standing ovation at the annual “DisHonors” Awards, presented by the Media Research Center, to poke fun liberal media groups. But the “horny” declaration didn’t go over too well, according to the Washington Post.

Buzz immediately commenced.

“Did Joe the Plumber really just say he’s horny?” “Did you hear Joe say ‘horny’?” “Why is he horny and why is he telling us?”

Part of me wishes I had never read that, and part of me wants to Not-Joe to be the next entrant in the Face Of The GOP sweepstakes.

Friday Quote & Panda Blogging

This week’s quote is from a Wired interview with genius comic book writer Grant Morrison:

I don’t know if we’re so much inured to apocalypse as almost sexually obsessed by it. We could only love apocalypse more if it had 4 liters of silicone in each tit.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s baby twin pandas…

Too cute.

Right-Wing Spin Of The Week

Hey, remember when Laura Ingraham called Meghan McCain “plus-sized” after Ms. McCain wrote about how mean-spirited and nasty conservatives are?  Apparently it was a comment on our dysfunctional image-obsessed society and not a slap at Meghan McCain’s weight in any way!

“Let the record show: I never called Meghan McCain fat! She isn’t!” Ingraham said. “And as I have repeatedly said on my radio show and on Fox, she is an attractive young woman. If that throwaway comic line highlighted anything, it was Hollywood’s obsession with stick-figure women!” Later, she added, “This diversion about — ‘Oh, it’s about her weight’ — my point was that she has no real world political experience to make the case for moderation.”

So, when Ingraham mimicked Meghan McCain saying, “Ok, I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the Real World, but then I realized that, well, they don’t like plus-sized models,” what she really meant was, “Ok, I was really hoping that I was going to get that role in the Real World, but then I realized that, well, our society is so hung up on unreasonable standards of thinness that media executives could never accept a healthy, normal-sized woman.”

I don’t know how we all failed to pick up on that, especially from a compassionate social crusader like Ingraham.
