Late to the Party


Dunno how I managed to miss this, but hells yeah, I'm in:

Are you a Joe? Say it proud. Leave it on every goddamn newspaper comment section and online forum. Let these pressroom and online thugs know you won't stay silent when they try to destroy the life of a private citizen for speaking his mind -- because for every one of them, there are a million Joe Wurzelbachers. And for that we should all be thankful.
I am Joe. Really, actually. (Jay is derived from Joseph). Joe's also my middle name, just like Joe the plumber. I stand with Joe.

I've written about my disgust with the mainstream media over this story already, so I'll spare the extra vitriol.

Others who are Joe: Ted, Lissa, TOTWTYTR, Dirtcrashr, Pistolero, T-bolt, Traction Control, Linoge, JD, and most likely a whole bunch of other folks I'm currently missing (and humbly apologize for the oversight in advance...) (ETA JD, sorry bud!)

That is all.

I'm Joe too. . . . we need everyone to be Joe!

I am Joe, too. And I am ARMED.

TOTWTYTR said...

Please add my friend, fellow blogger, and all around kick ass guy, JB on the Rocks to the list. http://jbontherocks.blogspot.com/

And even though he doesn't need our referrals, we'd be remiss in not thanking the guy that started all of this, Iowahawk. http://iowahawk.typepad.com/iowahawk/2008/10/i-am-joe.html

I hope every blogger on the right side of the issues picks this up.

As Instapundit would say, an Army of Joes.

Look at the word "this". It's a link to Iowahawk...

As Emily Litella used to say, "Never mind". Dunno how I managed to miss that. Hmm, that sounds familiar too!

Oo! OOO!!! ME, TOO!

Can I be Joe?

It has a better ring than "SCI-FI the Scribe"...

Jay G said...

Nah, go with Sci-fi the scrivener... ;)
