Tito the Builder is taking the media to task about their outrageous treatment of fellow citizen Joe the Plumber. The Media has clearly chosen a side in this election which I say makes them fair game for the kind of investigations and confrontations they have foisted upon Joe the Plumber. If the media want to be active participants in this election then take Obama’s advice: ‘Get in their face.’
NRO’s Byron York has all the details of the confrontation.
Someone asked why Munoz had come to the rally. “I support McCain, but I’ve come to face you guys because I’m disgusted with you guys,” he said. “Why the hell are you going after Joe the Plumber? Joe the Plumber has an idea. He has a future. He wants to be something else. Why is that wrong? Everything is possible in America. I made it. Joe the Plumber could make it even better than me. . . . I was born in Colombia, but I was made in the U.S.A.”
“I am Joe the Plumber!” Munoz chimed in. “You’re attacking me.”
“Wait a second,” Corn said. “Do you pay your taxes?”
“Yes, I pay my taxes,” the woman [Her name was Connie, and she said she had been born and raised in Antigua, in the West Indies.] said.
“Then you’re better than Joe the Plumber,” Corn said.
