Pepe el Plumero

At a rally in Miami shortly after midnight on Monday, Sen. John McCain tried to appeal to Hispanic voters.

Invoking "Joe the Plumber," McCain said:

"Pepe el Plumero ... that's the last time I'll try that."

"Plumero" is Spanish for feather duster.
So, yes, please retire the feather duster. And take the plumber with him while you're at it.

I told you those Peruvian shamans (see post below) were meddling.

(For those of you who like to fact-check, here is some raw video, the mishap happens at minute 7:20.)
