I gain hope from Michael Steele. It makes me happy that a person this fucking dumb has become a major face of the Republican party. I mean, Joe the Plumber is basically a walking ridiculous, but he doesn't have an official position.
However, he's so fucking dumb that picking on him is almost the equivalent of mocking the mentally challenged, and I am not cruel and without pity. I'll link you to Steve Benan's recap. Ridiculous.
