Joe The Plumber Links Gun Control To Armenian Genocide And Holocaust

Ohio Republican Congressional candidate Samuel Wurzelbacher, aka "Joe the Plumber," released a campaign video that linked the Armenian Genocide and the Holocaust to gun control. As he shoots fruits and vegetables, Wurzelbacher states, "In 1911, Turkey established gun control. From 1915 to 1917, 1.5 million Armenians, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated. In 1939, Germany established gun control. From 1939 to 1945, six million Jews and seven million others, unable to defend themselves, were exterminated. I love America." Wurzelbacher spokesman Phil Christofanelli described his candidate as "a student of history." Listen to his world history lesson:

Joe the Dumber is quoting from a long e-mail entitled "A little gun history lesson" that is full of nonsense about the historical effects of gun control.

This e-mail has been floating around lunatic fringe circles for years and has recently resurfaced. It is a ridiculous collection of pro-gun arguments.

Jon, I'm amazed that this guy is running at all. Exactly what knowledge or experience does he possess that qualifies him? Or is it enough for him, like Sarah Palin, to lack both and claim "Washington outsider" status?

As always, thanks for your comment.
