Someone wrote to ask if I thought "Joe" might be a "plant," a "shill," a "ringer," etc. The appearance of this fellow in the midst of the desperate search by Rick Davis, McCain et al for a rallying figure among the white, working class electorate does raise a certain question for me.
Someone should be taking a close look at Mr. Joe the everyman.
He brings to mind a bit of doggerel that my "mates" used to sing in pubs in the Gulf:
"Oh who IS the Sultan of Muscat and Oman?
Is he a yes man or is he a no man?
Or is he indeed, the abominable Snowman?" Anon.
Look closely boys and girls of the media. That is what you are paid for. pl
