According to Joey Joe Joe Junior Plumbadoo, Barack Obama wants to kill Israel.

At a stop in Columbus, he fielded the question on Israel from a self-identified Jewish senior citizen.

The questioner said he was “concerned” with Barack Obama’s associations and “It’s my belief that a vote for Obama is a vote for the death to Israel.”

Wurzelbacher responded: “I do know that.”

Another audience member then stood up and asked, “Useless last-gasp gimmick says what?” Joe then replied, “What?”

I will say this for the McCain campaign – they excel at taking people wholly unprepared to be on the national stage and making them into conservative superstars. Except, you know…John McCain.
