Not so! says Pajamas Media, a website so vile that we hesitate even to link to it. They're sending Joe Sam to Israel to report on the latest violence, because who better to analyze the situation that someone who doesn't know anything. The site claims that, "the conservative hero and "everyman" will ask the common sense questions the experts miss." This is good news, because who isn't sick of people who know things asking all the questions? Although, in all seriousness, the general reporting in the American media on this issue is a disgrace, and Joe's dispatches won't be that different from anything you'd hear on Meet the Press.
What's Joe's take on the situation? Here's an excerpt from the CNN article on the subject [emphasis added]:
""It's tragic, I mean it really is,” Wurzelbacher told CNN affiliate WNWO “I don't say that in any little way. It's very tragic, but at the same time what are the Israeli people supposed to do.”
Wurzelbacher told WNWO he’s not worried about the potential dangers of his new gig. "Being a Christian I'm pretty well protected by God I believe. That's not saying he's going to stop a mortar for me, but you gotta take the chance,” he told the CNN affiliate."
Honestly, do we really need another religious fanatic in Israel/Palestine? "Being a Christian" protects you? So...what...Joey Sammy will be the only person in the region protected by God? Yes, ok, there are other Christians there, but you get the point, but Joe/Sam the Plumbman probably does not.
That's all for now, but once some of his reports start coming in we'll look at them and see if they differ substantially from anything the Brian Williams/Charlie Gibson/Katie Couric corporate hydra is saying.
