Okay, Then, Why Didn't You Say So

Joe the Plumber, neither a Joe nor a Plumber, but why be picky?

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, Joe starts swimming in it. Who invited him back in the pool? Oh well, here's Joe "Samuel Wurzelbacher" the Plumber:
Wurzelbacher said his letter is directed "only to the families of the gunshot victims in Santa Barbara" and not to the families of three who were stabbed ahead of the shooting spree.
"I am sorry you lost your child. I myself have a son and daughter and the one thing I never want to go through, is what you are going through now. But: As harsh as this sounds -- your dead kids don’t trump my Constitutional rights," Wurzelbacher wrote.
Okay. Please make this the last time anybody listens to this guy. Please. Only humans from now on.

Note. While we seek to cleanse our spirits of the words of this horrific freak, let us be reminded that we've gotten it all wrong. Joe Nocera looks at it and gets it right.
