Joe the Plumber supports state auditor candidate Icet in latest ad

Why it should matter to anyone, I have a hard time understanding, but in the latest commercial from the Allen Icet for state auditor campaign, Joe the Plumber, who has taken his 15 minutes of fame and stretched it beyond all reason, declares his support for Icet and compares him to a glass of “iced tea…

[Allen Icet, Auditor, Protecting Our Tax Dollars!]

Sam Wurzelbacher: To get our nation back we must elect honest leaders that will hold our government and themselves accountable. That is why I am proud to support Allen Icet for Missouri Auditor. I know Allen and he’s an honest man that you can trust to protect your tax dollars. But don’t just take my word for it, do your own research and I think that a little ice tea is exactly what you need.

[Allen Icet, Auditor, Protecting Our Tax Dollars!]

Ice T. Icet. Now I get it. I should have gone into political communications when I was fourteen.

Okay, they did that last one just to see if we were paying close enough attention.

Because nothing says republican establishment candidate like a seemingly endless series of $10,000.00 campaign contributions. Doesn’t that just give you grass rootsie chills all over?

They’ll definitely be able to hire a more expensive band.
