Conservative conference attendees bask in recent success

PITTSBURGH – Scott and Anna Allegrini founded The Children of Liberty shortly after the inauguration of President Barack Obama.

A record crowd gathered to thumb their collective noses at the encroaching "nanny state" and listen to the words of Sam Wurzelbacher, aka Joe the Plumber, Saturday at the Independence Institute's annual Alcohol, Tobacco & Firearms Party.

Conservative movement pitchman Samuel Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, continues his rather controversial revisionist American history tour with free-wheeling remarks invoking states rights and the Biblical origins of the U.S. Constitution. In an interview published in Christianity Today, Joe the Plumber opines on politics and GOP rebranding efforts while professing his love for James Dobson and slurring "queers" whom he won't let near his children.

Nobel winners go for Obama, Joe the Plumber sticks with McCain

76 American Nobel Prize winners have endorsed Barack Obama for President. In an open letter, they praised Obama's "emphasis during the campaign on the power of science and technology to enhance our nation's competitiveness." Meanwhile, John McCain has earned the endorsement of working class American "Joe the Plumber," who is neither a licensed plumber nor named Joe (it's Samuel Wurzelbacher for those who are wondering).
