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.
