Three degrees of separation.

Wow, maybe this whole wacky idea of 6 degrees of separation totally works. Maybe, just maybe, this little gem of an article from Huffington post is a total coincidence. Yeah, maybe.

You know what? It probably is a total coincidence. I mean, I know what you are thinking. McCain was the one who brought up Joe the Plumber more than 20 times during the debate. And it is weird that this guy is just three tiny degrees of separation away from McCain himself. And yes, Joe the Plumber's real name isn't even Joe, so who would've thought the press would find him so quickly or that he's have all these weirdo "issues." I mean, if this was some sort of crazy manipulative political move by McCain, it would be pretty silly since he surely would have learned from the vetting process with Palin to look a little more closely at someone before allying your name with theirs, though it is funny that "Joe" has already done more interviews than Palin, so maybe this was all about drawing attention to something - anything - else. Because between Troopergate and new ads like these:

So, yeah, if I were McCain I'd probably want to draw attention to anything else too. Like, you know, Joe, that plumber guy, the one who hates paying taxes. Because only socialists love paying taxes.
