Ignorant Joe the Plumber in an inane interview with AOL:
Probably the 1800s, because men and women rose and fell on their own strengths. Government wasn’t as powerful as it is now, and in America you could make it or not make it depending on your efforts and your work. Men held to their word. I like that kind of black and white. [emphasis mine]
This is entirely true as long as you were not black, or a woman hoping to vote or have a meaningful career, or a native american, or so on and so on. This guy always has been and always will be…an idiot.
