Joe the Voter since 2007
History of the Joe Blog
Joe is not my name, It is actually Paul. As of this writing I am a 76 year old tech nerd and web guy. I have been politics-adjacent since before Ronald Reagan who turned me into a Democrat. For a spell I was a registered lobbyist in Washington for grass roots justice reform.
I believe as we age we either become wiser or dumber. I chose to keep learning.
If anyone recalls the rather comical Sarah Palin who could sit on her porch and wave to Russians across the waters...she trotted out a sham of a guy touted as "Joe the Plumber". We know how well that turned out for her. Joe was briefly a plumbers assistant only. 1
Since I was knee deep in the Obama campaign plugging in data...I decided the left needed it's own "Joe" and thus, JoeTheVoter came to be. That was way back in 2007. Been here ever since.
