Stick to plumbing, Joe

In other Middle East news, God weighs in on the side of comedy writers. Yes, Joe the Plumber is going to Israel. No, this is not from The Onion or Andy Borowitz. It’s real:

Two months after publicly agreeing with a McCain supporter that a vote for Mr Obama was a vote for the death of Israel, he says he will spend 10 days covering the Gaza conflict from the Israelis’ point of view.

Clearly a man for whom the phrase ‘objective reporting’ has no relevance, he told Toledo television station WNWO-TV; “It’s tragic but what are the Israeli people supposed to do?

“I get to go over there and let their “Average Joes” share their story, what they think, how they feel, especially with world opinion, maybe get a real story out there,” he said.

“If given the opportunity to do some good however minute it may be, or could be something really good, you gotta take that chance. You have to do it,” he added, heroically.

Is he scared that one of the Hamas rockets might have his name on it? Not really. After all, as he explained, he’s a Christian so God will keep him safe.

“Being a Christian I’m pretty well protected by God I believe,” he said.

I’m sure Israeli Jews will be thrilled to learn that they too can be protected from missiles if they will only accept Jesus as their personal savior.
