Joe Six Pack
Palin goes on and on about Joe Six Pack, McCain is all about Joe the Plumber. These mythical men are supposed to represent Real Americans and all that. Yeah.
I haven’t bene paying much attention to the coverage, so maybe one of you can tell me: has no one commented on the fact that this mythical Real American is always some guy? No one is talking about Jane Winebox, as far as I know. (Thanks Jon Stewart!)
Seriously, how come the name that represents us all can’t be a woman’s name?
I already know the answer to this, obviously. I just needed to say it out loud.
