The No Sh*t Tour

Well, I was going to say "Crap", but I felt it was not colorful enough. Navy man's prerogative. Any way John McCain is doing a Joe The Plumber tour in Florida using his "Straight Talk Express" bus.

DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) - Republican John McCain is trying to keep Florida from swinging to the Democrats with a cross-state bus tour and a series of "Joe the Plumber" events aimed at blue-collar workers.

From Ormond Beach on the Atlantic Coast to Sarasota on the Gulf Coast, the Republican nominee was to ride his "Straight Talk Express" bus Thursday between stops focused on criticizing Democrat Barack Obama's tax plans and promoting his own proposals to cut them for individuals and businesses. He was visiting a building materials company, a doctor's office, a restaurant and a farm.

The route not only traverses the vote-rich "I-4 Corridor" through Orlando, in central Florida, but includes informal stops between the more formal rallies. Its goal was to boost McCain in a state George W. Bush won in 2000 and 2004, but which Obama is threatening to seize despite a strong GOP machine and McCain's endorsement by Republican Gov. Charlie Crist.
Let's hope McCain can hold on. We will know soon.

Someone should be running - If the Democrats can do this to someone who disagrees with them now, imagine what they will do if Obama gets elected.
