Taking “Joe the Plumber” wordplay to an unprecedented new level of stupidity, Sarah Palin on Monday dubbed Barack Obama “Barack the Wealth Spender” for his plan to offer tax credits to lower and middle-income wage earners during a speech in Grand Junction, Colorado. That's just lame.
"Barack the wealth spender doesn't even makes sense. "Wealth Spender" isn't a job, making it a pretty weak wordplay. And for that matter, isn't a "wealth spender" anyone who buys something? Aren't we all spending our wealth every day? What would be the opposite of "wealth spender"... poverty spender?
Here are top five ten potential "Joe the plumber" nicknames for Palin:
1. Sarah the Russia Watcher
2. Sarah the Governor Who Abused Her Power During "Troopergate"
3. Sarah the Librarian (because she reads every magazine and newspaper, and tried to ban books when she was mayor)
4. Sarah the Hate Mongering Smear Campaigner
5. Sarah the Person Just Like Tina Fey, Only Dumber
