ZORAIDA SAMBOLIN -- CNN ANCHOR: And what do you think, or how do you think that qualifies you to run for Congress?
WURZELBACHER: (Laughs) What qualifies me – one, I'm an American citizen. Two, you know, I'm very much involved in the process of what's going on. I guess my question would be, what qualifies the current politicians who are killing our country, Republicans and Democrats alike. I'm sorry, it just seems like a silly question.
The Framers envisioned the House of Representatives as "the people's house" It was intended to be a body composed of ordinary Americans whose concerns would be reflected there. Seems to me that Joe the Plumber is certainly more in keeping with the sort of person they would have expected there than the sort of elites that Zoraida Sambolin thinks ought to be elected.
