Joe the Plumber’s address published – stay classy, internet!

Why do I, or Jill, even need to say that publishing his address is beyond uncool?

The fact that the McCain campaign is using this man as a prop (much as they have done with Trig Palin), doesn’t excuse burrowing into his personal life in this manner. This goes for anyone, Republican or Democrat.

The original blame for snatching up this man and repeatedly brandishing him as some sort of weapon is with McCain (and even McCain himself has appeared to admit as much), but this example doesn’t exactly, you know, inspire in this instance.

“Joe the Plumber” had every right to ask whatever he wanted of Obama, and I say that both as a co-owner of a small business and as someone who cast her absentee ballot for Obama earlier this week.
