With less than two weeks to Election Day, here’s a mini “Plagiarism Is the Sincerest Form of Flattery” post.

First up is Neal Boortz. He writes an open letter to the undecided voter. It’s a long letter - you’ll probably need 10-15 minutes to read it all. But, I found it very interesting - one of the things I’ve enjoyed this political season is seeing how people interpret what’s going on. You can see where they’ve been, and how they see the issues based on their experience.

Next is an image blatantly swiped from Morgan Freeberg. Sums up poor Joe the Plumber’s treatment pretty well, I think…

A three-panel cartoon. Panel 1, Barack Obama is walking in front of a crowd in his boxers. Panel 2, a boy exclaims 'But he hasn't got any clothes on!' Panel 3, a newspaper with the boy's picture and various negative items about him: 'Wets Bed', 'Lost Lunch Money', 'Has Unlicensed Lemonade Stand'

Morgan also had a good line about Joe.

Joe the Plumber does not make 250,000 dollars a year. He doesn’t even make close to that.

He just wants to.

So, Joe is opposed to taxing people who make more than $250k because he wants to be one of those people in the future. Could it be that people are engaging their brains, instead of mindlessly buying into the class warfare schtick of the left?
