I am Joe

Saturday,  10/18/08  03:12 PM

I am Joe.  Even though my name is Ole, I am Joe.  Even though I am Dutch, and live in Los Angeles and work in San Diego (hardly flyover country), I am Joe.  Even though I have four daughters, I do like tossing a football on the front lawn, and I am Joe.  Even though I don't change my own oil, and have to hire a real Joe to unclog my drains, I am Joe.  I don't smoke, and I drink wine instead of beer, and I would be hard-pressed to find the nearest Wal-Mart, but I am Joe.  I wouldn't necessarily say everyone in my family and everyone I grew up with is a Joe, but still I am Joe.  I would definitely say if you screw with Joe, with any Joe, you screw with me.

Oh yeah, I am voting for McCain, and I don't care who knows about it.  I'm proud to be different from the mainstream media and Hollywood and every foreign government you might name.  I am Joe, and I am an American.
