With a lineup like this, who could resist?
Reince Priebus is not the only conservative star you’ll get to hear (and possibly chat with). I can now share that Joe the Plumber and former Texas Solicitor General Ted Cruz will be speaking at the Gathering. They join the likes of Bobby Jindal, Florida Governor Rick Scott, and Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson.
As you know, Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher gained national attention in 2008 when he questioned Obama on his redestributive tax policy. He is now running for Congress in Ohio’s 9th district.Just a reminder: 1) we've had progressive taxation in this country for almost 100 years, so that "policy" isn't just Obama's; and 2) taxes under Obama are at record lows.
In other words, Erickson is proudly touting a complete clown who got famous despite not knowing shit about anything, which is apparently the first and most important criteria for right-wing political candidates these days.
