I spent Wednesday and Thursday in southwest Florida splashing about the Gulf of Mexico and then flying home, so before this morning I had no opportunity to know of the existence of the now famous Joe the Plumber. Of course, by now left wing bloggers and their media allies have plumbed the depths of the man's existence.

Our political system has evolved. Normal people -- those who don't run for national office -- used to question why anyone would put themselves through all that they go through by running. Now, it appears that the mere act of asking a question will potentially subject an ordinary citizen to a nationally viewed colon exam. This sort of thing does not exactly encourage an open political process.

In all of his years of unclogging drains, Joe has probably never encountered anything quite like this.
