Joe the Plumber seems to have fallen off the ‘A’ list

Remember this guy? Such good times. Looks like the invitations have thinned out since over the years (via Wikipedia).

How’s that abstinence tour going?

An hour after accusing all of us of devolving while entertainingourselves with gossip, let me show you I accept my share of the guilt by myself engaging in gossip – here and now. Because I love a cheap thrill and can’t help myself.

So — too many Smoothies or a baby bump? I report. You decide.
