Ironic, Isn’t It?: Joe the Plumber Fields Press Questions—But Sarah Palin Doesn’t

Joe the Plumber does it.

Sarah Palin doesn’t?

Welcome to “bubble democracy”—where a candidate for the second highest office in the United States only arrives before voters via the filter of the teleprompter—and stays within her bubble of rectitude and press management at all other times.

No press conferences. No sit-downs with journalists.

This strikes at the very heart of democracy.

May the voters this year soundly spank the Republicans for this gross abuse of the electorate. 

Will she hold a press conference before the election?

Wouldn’t it be creepy if she didn’t?
